Introducing Canada

Sure, it doesn't get quite the attention of it's southern neighbor, but only a foolish traveler would sleep on Canada. 


City slickers will be surprised by the diversity in urban centers like Vancouver and Toronto. Those looking for a relaxing island getaway will find paradise in Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. And, of course, outdoor adventurers will love all those square kilometres of mountains, lakes, and forests just begging to be explored. 

NEED TO KNOW

Language: English works just fine, but we suggest bringing along a French phrasebook if going to Quebec. 

Currency: Canadian Dollar ($1 = ~1.41 dollars)

Credit Cards & ATMs: Major debit and credit cards are widely accepted in Canada, with Visa and MasterCard being the most popular. ATMs widely available. 

Plugs: Type A or B, 120V / 60Hz. Bring this universal adapter

Safety: Ranking sixth in 2019's Global Peace Index, Canada is certainly a safe place to visit for travelers. Still, we always recommend checking the latest US State Department travel advisories for your destination.

WHEN TO VISIT CANADA

Being a northern country, summer is naturally the most popular time to visit Canada. But the autumn months of September to November might be our secret pick for the best time to visit Canada. The cool weather is just right, summer crowds have disappeared, prices drop and you get to witness the perfect fall scenery. Additionally, you'll get to experience different celebrations and festivals that fall during the autumn season.

Driving in Canada

Canada drives on the right side of the road.

Though driving in Canada is very similar to driving in the United States, take note that there are some slight differences in the laws and provincial rules of the road that vary between the countries—speed is measured in kph and that there are no right-hand turns on red lights allowed in Montreal (however, you can turn right on red in the rest of Quebec).
