Getting to Sackville:
The nearest airport to Sackville is in Moncton (30 mins.). Though an international airport, flights from main Canadian airports (notably, Pearson Airport in Toronto) are limited. Please make sure you book your flight well in advance.

Transportation to Sackville from Moncton’s airport is by cab, which can usually accommodate three passengers. Closer to the time of the conference (after our registration is up and running) you’ll be able to make such arrangements with other participants if you wish.
