Thank you Marie for this Cohen site map. I find it so interesting to see all these familiar places on the map and the pop-ups work fine. I hope others like me who will not be in Montreal in November find your map here - who knows, we might get there some time! Much appreciated.

Electronic Travel Authorization:
Citizens from countries other than the United States who do not need a visa to enter Canada will need to obtain an eTA before flying to Canada. Travellers do not need an eTA when entering Canada by land or sea. Applying for an eTA is a simple online process that takes just a few minutes. You need your passport, a credit or debit card and an email address. It costs CAD $7 to get an eTA. It is valid for up to five years.

Received the email with conformation this morning about the tour and dinner. I can only imagine how busy you all are with arranging all of this. So thanks again for making this all happen. Time is passing slowly but surely and we are looking forward meeting familiar faces again and new Cohenities in November!

RE: eTA Electronic Travel Authorization
Canadian citizens living in the US (green card holders) flying in to Canada do not need an eTA as long as you have your Canadian passport.
I checked this out as I am a Canadian citizen living in the US and this applies to my situation.
Once you get one it is valid until your passport (of any country) expires. At that time you need to apply for a new one. I bought my husband one last year and it took 5 minutes online.
Thanks Jarkko for the reminder to everyone.
See you all soon!

Just one further word about the eTA. Don't worry if it takes a day or two to come through. I had a new passport last year so had to apply for a new eTA. However some complicated travel arrangements involving land crossings followed by flights for another trip a couple of weeks later meant I didn't meet the requirements for automatic online approval. However I got my eTA approval notification through no problem within a couple of days once someone had looked at it.

Does everyone need this eTA? Is a passport not enough?

***Not US citizens but all the others who fly to Canada and don't need a visa/ Jarkko

Dan, we have not got any emails from you since you on Sept 13 told that you've got ticket to the concert. I sent you the invitation to Moishe's and the City tour, and later two follow-ups. Did you get those? Have you checked your spam folder?

I responded to the note that I had not responded to being on the list for tour and dinner. I though I was on the list and sent a confirming text. What should I do now ? Please .

Dan, the emails must be circulating somewhere in the cyber space, trying to find my inbox.
Don't worry. I put you down to both lists now. More by email.

We will be in Montreal for the concert. Since we will be there for 6 days we would also like to make some day trips in and outside Montreal. So this is a request for some suggestions for activities in and around Montreal early November beside the program that already has been made by Jarkko and his team.
Our interest lies in outdoors activities (long walks etc.), good food and wine and local/territorial culture, not so much in museum visits.
Have of course done some homework and found some ideas via TripAdvisor but am keen on tips form locals there that are (much) less commercial

Anyone?

Thanks in advance :D

I am a new member to this forum but a LC fan since 1967 (gives you an idea about my age). My wife and I are coming to Montreal Sunday, Nov. 5 and leaving Weds. Nov. 8. I have 2 questions, which I would appreciate anyone answering;

1. I read posts on here referring to a tour and dinner at Moishe's. Can I still sign up and how? I've read about Moishe's and had it on our to do list but would love to join other fans there.

2. I have 2 extra tickets to the concert Monday which I want to sell. They are in Sect. 119, Row V. I ended up buying the Bronze pkg. in Sec. 102 to be closer. Can you explain how I can sell them on the forum?

Thanks,
Frank
