Airport Transfer

Not sure how to get to your homestay family or hotel room once you arrive in Toronto?

We’ll meet you at the gate after you have passed customs and drop you off at your new home. Just look for our driver with a UMC sign and your name under it!

Airport transfers are also available on your way back to the airport. We can arrange both pick-up and drop-off.


Please note that by law international students studying in Canada must be covered for the entire period of their stay.

You can purchase your insurance at UMC. Just let us know you will be needing it in the application form, or speak to your marketer!
