Where necessary, it is advisable to come with one or two warm clothing and then purchase more adaptable clothes during the winter months in Canada if necessary.
9. ACCOMODATION AND MEALS INFORMATION
All our courses, both in Canada and other international venues are priced on a non-residential basis i.e. the charge per course does not include accommodation and meals. This enables participants to choose different types of accommodation to match their needs. To assist participants in finding accommodation, we offer advice on a range of accommodation options. Upon acceptance we shall provide prospective applicants with a list of closely supervised accommodation service providers to choose from.
Most hotels and guesthouses have both single and double occupancy rooms available. The following are some ideas of the special, all-inclusive room rates extended exclusively to ICCD participants.
Canadian Dollars $

The rooms of the hotels and guesthouses are spacious with a relaxing atmosphere, with the guesthouses having a family sized kitchen, an ideal environment for participants who prefer to cook their own meals. As a multi-cultural country with a huge diversity in the population, almost all indigenous foods and spices from every country abound in the various shopping malls and speciality shops. “Canada is home away from home”.
10. DAILY SUBSISTENCE ALLOWANCE/PER DIEM
Per Diem or personal allowances are at the discretion of the individual sponsoring agency. Experience has shown that the rate at which these allowances are paid varies considerably and is largely based on the sponsor’s ability to pay. In addition to course fees, accommodation and air travel cost, ICCD recommends a minimum per diem or daily subsistence allowance (DSA) of Canadian $ 65 or US$ 55 per day to cater for individual expenses, meals and private local transportation costs. Prospective participants, in consultation with their sponsors, are therefore advised to budget accordingly.
11. FOREIGN EXCHANGE FACILITIES
Just like many other countries, banks in Canada all transact foreign exchange in any major international currency, notably, Great Britain Pound Sterling (£), United States Dollar ($), Australian Dollar ($), Euro (€), Japanese Yen (¥), etc. There are many foreign exchange bureaus in the city of Mississauga for your convenience. service. All arrivals will normally be at the Toronto Pearson International Airport. Similarly, ICCD will arrange free transport to the airport on time to facilitate participant’s departure at the end of their course.
