I would love to attend FinCon but flights from Toronto seem pricey. I have been shopping the travel deal sights and $535 one way is a lot for my tight budget.

The looney will probably remain down for the rest of the year and it all adds to me probably waiting for FinCon 2105.

Wonder if the organizers would consider holding it in Toronto?

Yikes that is a lot of money. I found round trip flights from Montreal with United for $410. Keep searching maybe you will get lucky.

There is a Canadian Personal Finance Conference in the Fall. It’s usually in Toronto.
