Information

Welcome to RITC 2019!

As participants for this year's competition, this area of the website is dedicated to you and your needs. We hope you find it informative and we look forward to seeing you in February.

If you need a visa to come to Canada, it is strongly recommended that you read the section "International Competitors - Visa" below.

Other Information

    Canada's visa laws have been undergoing changes in recent years, making the process to acquire a VISA longer than in the past. It is each individual competitor's responsibility to inquire if they need a visa to enter Canada, and to apply for one if necessary. Click here to find out if you need a visa. It is also recommended that all competitors from outside of Canada purchase travel health insurance.

    It can take up to six weeks to receive a visa, please apply as soon as you can.

    RITC is a professional business competition, so participants are expected to dress in either business casual or business formal attire. The exception is for the Quantitative Outcry case where competitors wear distinguishing clothing or uniforms (such as noticeable hats, jerseys, or trading jackets) in order to more easily distinguish team members in the trading pit.

    Please note, that the average temperature in Toronto in February is -8 degrees Celsius (15 degrees Fahrenheit). We suggest that you bring appropriate winter clothing, and that you check the weather forecasts before you pack for the competition.
