New initiative gives international students warm welcome at Pearson Airport

August 26, 2011

Through a partnership involving the City of Toronto, GTA colleges and universities, the Ontario government, and Rogers Communications Inc., the International Students Welcome Booth offers new students a friendly welcome in the international arrivals area of Terminals 1 and 3 at Toronto's Pearson Airport. At each location, students will receive a free welcome kit. They will get answers to their questions and information about housing and accommodation, public transit, Toronto's communities and neighbourhoods, dining, shopping, and entertainment. There will also be a free shuttle service (based on availability) to the participating PSE institutions' campuses. Last year Quebec PSE schools partnered to launch the Accueil Plus Service, which provides personal assistance to facilitate international students' integration at their arrival at Montréal-Trudeau Airport.
