The YMC 2019 will be held at Queen’s University at Kingston, ON, Canada.
Kingston is a city on the most eastern end of Lake Ontario, at the beginning of the St. Lawrence River. Here the St. Lawrence meets the Rideau Canal, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The city is located midway between Toronto and Montreal, and is also within 1.5 hours drive to Ottawa, the capital city of Canada. The Thousand Islands tourist region is nearby to the east. Kingston is known as the Limestone City because of the many heritage buildings constructed using local limestone.
Kingston is served by the Norman Rogers Airport with several daily flights from and to Toronto Pearson International Airport. The city is also easily accessible from Toronto, Montreal and Ottawa by car, train and bus.
A stunning, historic and highly touristic city, Kingston offers a wonderful experience to visitors, from a variety of hotels, restaurants, boutique shops, and outdoor activities. Kingston is also home to a vibrant arts community, with Queen’s being home to the Agnes Etherington Art Centre and Museum as well as the new Isabel Bader Centre for the Performing Arts.
