Trainees travel to Témiscaming mainly by bus or car. There is also a possibility to travel by air with Air Canada. However, please note that the funding received for travel usually does not cover the full cost of the plane ticket.
Depending on the location of their base teaching site, each trainee receives a stipend to help pay for transportation costs.
Trainees must make their own travel arrangements.
