Electrical Outlets

In Canada, the voltage of electrical outlet is 110VAC-60Hz (compared to 220VAC-50Hz in Europe) and the plugs differ from those of European countries. Thus, in order to use all your electronic devices (such as your laptop), you should:
  • check that your power supply will function for 110VAC
  • bring a Canadian convertor plug (Type B), easy to find in many stores in downtown Montreal (for example in the luggage store across the street from the conference hall)
  • use a battery powered alarm clock: European alarm clocks will not synchronise correctly with the 60 Hz current.

Mirabel is only used for fret and good transportation now.
