Toronto is renowned for its pedestrian-friendly environment. At the heart of this urban landscape lies the PATH- Toronto’s Downtown Pedestrian Walkway system that emphasises Toronto’s commitment to walkability and accessibility. Here’s more information on the pedestrian walkway system, our conference venue is connected with.

The Path

The PATH is a mostly underground pedestrian walkway network in downtown Toronto that spans more than 30 kilometres of restaurants, shopping, services and entertainment.

The walkway facilitates pedestrian linkages to public transit, accommodating more than 200,000 business-day commuters as well as tourists and residents. The PATH provides an important contribution to the economic viability of the city’s downtown core.
