Hi BizWiz

We are travelling from Italy to Canada this summer. At the end of our trip (Toronto) we would like to visit Chicago, travelling via Lake Erie, then returning to Toronto, ON. Who can give me updated information about timetables, prices, etc. of such service?

Thank you,

M. Cronin


Hi Margaret,

This should be quite straightforward, but you have many options to choose from: air, rail or auto.

Get your first overview from Ontario Tourism or Tourism Toronto, our provincial and city destination colleagues on the ground in Ontario. If it’s air travel, then start with Air Canada and WestJet to see what options they might have. For rail, VIA Rail is your one-stop shop. As for auto, there are many companies out there in the marketplace, but perhaps once you’ve plotted a route with our tourism colleagues that choice will become clearer.

Have a great time!

All the best,

Tourism BizWiz

Hi Nicole

Contact Travel Manitoba, who can put you in touch with your local tourism marketing organization.

best, Mat

My lands in Manitoba look like BC. They are located in the East Escarpment and full of deep valleys and hills. They are known for being of great importance due to UFO sightings and their coordinates. They are located in the East Escarpment, south of the south eastern corner of Riding Mountain National park, adjacent to a large cluster of Crown Lands. I own 350 acres and I am a developer interested in Tourist Development. Who do I contact in order to partner. In order to view photos of my lands link to
