Resident Accommodation Booking Process for Toronto and Ottawa


Ottawa

  • 2- four bedroom leased townhouses – walking distance to CHEO

Toronto

  • a two bedroom leased condo – walking distance to TG, HSC, MS, PM and WC

 

All regional accommodation arrangements require the sharing of the unit with separate bedrooms for each resident/learner.

  1. Each year, in April, the Regional Education Office will send out an email notice to all program assistants requesting the booking requests for mandatory rotations in Ottawa and Toronto.
  2. On receipt of specific PG specialty program schedules for Ottawa/Toronto mandatory rotations, the Regional Education office will assign the residents’ names to the available accommodations. Accommodations will be scheduled to ensure best use of the space and maximizing booking capacity.
  3. Regional Education communicates with each of the program assistants to confirm accommodation arrangements.
  4. If accommodation requests surpass availability in Toronto, the resident(s) is provided with an accommodation allowance by Regional Education ($800/month) and the PGME Office (up to $1200). Some restrictions apply.      

N.B. Residents who decline the accommodations provided by Regional Education, will be responsible for arranging their own accommodation at their expense.

  1. Automated notifications from MEdTech will be sent to each residents’ Queen’s email address upon booking. This serves as the confirmation of booking and provides the location and check-in details.

As with all regional accommodations, all learners are required to meet the following expectations:

  • Linens must be laundered prior to departure
  • Unit must be cleaned (e.g., washroom, living areas)
