Pre- Conference Tour: Walking and Tasting Tour of St. Lawrence Market

The International Conference on Diversity in Organizations, Communities & Nations is pleased to announce the Pre-conference Tour.

Beginning across from the famous St. Lawrence Market, (established in 1803), join our private guide on a walk of the area to give you a sense of what the old Town of York was like and how the market developed over time to be one of the top attractions in this great city.

Upon entering the South Market Building, which houses the permanent vendors (unlike the seasonal vendors in the North Market Building), your guide will lead you to their very favorite spots and those that sell particular foods that tell the story of Canada's settlement and the people who came from around the world to make this country their new home. Canadian food is very regional and this tour will cover the country coast to coast.


-Learn some history of the St Lawrence Market area
-Sample some amazing foods made in Canada (some vendors provide samples, beyond this, delegates are free to purchase food throughout the market as advised by our local guide)
-Meet some of the nicest vendors in the market
-Buy a variety of foods to sample and share
-Get to know the market with a local expert then explore more on your own until the market closes (6PM)

Be sure to book early and join your fellow conference delegates on this pre-conference tour.
