Where is C2 Montréal
C2 Montréal 2018 will take place at Arsenal, at 2020 William Street, Montréal, QC (H3J 1R8), in Montréal’s historic, innovation-driven Griffintown district. Arsenal is a flagship industrial heritage building that’s been transformed into a vast contemporary art gallery.
Arsenal’s mix of industry and art serves as the perfect setting for what we like to call the C2 village. The C2 village also extends onto park land behind Arsenal, affording access to the historically significant Lachine Canal, a vestige of the industrial age. Every year, this village-like setting is reinvented to serve as a creative playground where curiosity is the norm, risk is encouraged and anything can happen.
C2 Montréal’s corporate headquarters: The rest of the year we can be found at 460 Ste-Catherine West, Suite 805, Montréal, QC (H3B 1A7) in the heart of beautiful downtown Montréal.
Important info for those travelling from outside Canada
Visas and other documentation: Visa-exempt foreign nationals who fly to or transit through Canada are expected to have an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA). Exceptions include U.S. citizens and travellers with a valid Canadian visa. Learn more here.
Currency and taxes: The currency here is the Canadian dollar. A Goods and Services Tax (GST) of 5%, as well as a provincial sales tax (TVQ) of 9.975% are added to all goods and services purchased in the province of Québec.
There is also a 3.5% Tax on Lodging for each accommodation unit rented in an establishment located in the Montréal tourism region.
Converting currency: You can convert money at the pricier Pierre Elliot Trudeau Airport currency exchange (not recommended), or at your hotel (even less recommended), or simply by using your ATM card at any bank, which will cost a small fee (best option). There are also numerous currency exchanges located throughout downtown that offer competitive rates.
Tipping at restaurants and elsewhere: Service is not included in your restaurant bill, so it’s customary to add a 15% tip to the total before taxes (if you’re with a group, 15% for service may be automatically added to your bill). Taxi drivers, delivery people, hairdressers, etc. are also normally tipped 10% to 15%. Porters, doormen, etc. generally receive at least $1 per suitcase or per service rendered.
