The Centre for Dialogue is located in downtown Vancouver’s Heritage District, close to historic Gastown, theatres, galleries and sports arenas. SFU’s other meeting venues are close by—Harbour Centre, the main downtown campus, is across the street, the Segal Building is one block away and the Goldcorp Centre for the Arts is three blocks away.  The city’s principal transportation hub, Waterfront Station, is also one block away, providing access to public transit, including the SeaBus, SkyTrain and West Coast Express.  Vancouver’s international airport (YVR) is just 35 minutes by car.  Rapid transit between the airport and downtown Vancouver, the Canada Line, is only one block from the Centre for Dialogue. Nearly all of Vancouver’s major hotels are within a short walking distance, along with shopping districts, art galleries and restaurants.  The Vancouver Convention Centre is an easy seven-minute walk from the Centre for Dialogue.
