Attendees must follow SFC travel policy. Most importantly, take a screen shot of your airfare search. Your ticket must be within $100 of the lowest fare. Keep receipts for transport and lodging. Meal cost and misc. expenses are handled by a per diem and don't require receipts.
Google Flights search is probably your best bet. kayak.com and mobissimo.com can also be useful.
Most international flights arrive at Pearson International Airport (YYZ). Some Canadian and US flights arrive at Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport (YTZ).

The LGM Accommodation page is pretty sparse. The AirBnB suggestion is worth looking into (I paid 1/3 of what a hotel would cost in Sydney using AirBnB). If you are interested in sharing a room (US/Canadian hotel rooms are usually quite big, often with two queen size beds) leave a note here:
The hackfest will be held in [to be filled in].
A map of the U. of Toronto campus can be found on the LGM Venue page.
After the event, forward your receipts (scans/pdf files/etc.) to me (Tavmjong). I'll collect them and forward them to the SFC. You need to also send payment information (name, currency, paypal account or bank information: see travel policy for more details).
