Introduction

facade
Canada and the United States have many major geographic features in common. They share the Rocky Mountains, the Interior Plains, four of the Great Lakes, the Appalachian Highlands, and many rivers. It is hardly surprising, therefore, that the stories of the exploration and settlement of both of these nations are closely interwoven.

The complete history of neither Canada nor the United States can be studied without reference to the history of the other. Each is today an independent nation. Each, however, achieved its independence by a completely different path--Canada by gradual constitutional change spread over many years, the United States by a single great War of Independence.

The earliest discovery of the New World was made by Norse seafarers known as Vikings. The vague accounts of their exploits are drawn from their sagas, epic stories in prose or verse handed down by word of mouth through many generations. In AD 985 Norse seamen sailing from Iceland to Greenland were blown far westward off their course and sighted the coast of what must have been Labrador. The report of forested areas on the strange new coast encouraged further explorations by Norse colonists from Greenland, whose settlements lacked lumber.

In AD 1000 Leif Ericson became the first European to land in North America (see Ericson). According to the sagas, this was the first of many Norse voyages to the eastern shores of the continent. A colony was established in what the Vikings described as Vinland, identified in 1963 as being on the northernmost tip of Newfoundland. Recent investigations have cast doubt on the once-popular theory that the Vikings also penetrated Hudson Bay and reached the upper Great Lakes region by overland routes. Discoveries of "Norse" relics in that area have been exposed by scholars as hoaxes. The Greenland colony died out during the 14th and 15th centuries, and the Norse adventures in Canada must have come to an end well before that time.

Weather

Climate & Weather

Canada stretches from the Atlantic to the Pacific oceans, sharing the southern latitude of Rome and reaching all the way up to the Arctic. Across such a vast landscape temperature and climate varies dramatically. In May alone, you can ski the Olympic-caliber mountain terrain of the west coast or attend the world's largest tulip festival in central Canada.

Seasons & Temperatures

No matter when you visit, Canada's seasons offer dramatic displays of color and vibrant life.

Spring

Spring arrives as early as late February on the west coast. In the rest of Canada, temperatures warm up in early April and the pleasant spring weather extends to June. Where else can you head north on a dogsledding adventure, paddle remote coastal waters or walk through the wonderland of cherry blossoms exploding in bloom, but in coastal BC?

Summer

Summers across Canada bring warm to hot weather from late May to late September. The hot summer months arrive in June and carry on through August, with July often the hottest summer month. This is the prime time of year to venture out to a wilderness lodge and fish in waters that have barely seen a ripple from another angler, kayak among the beluga whales in Churchill, Manitoba or catch the world-renowned Wild West fun of the Calgary Stampede.

Fall

Fall months bring cool, pleasant temperatures, particularly in September and October. It's the best time of year to catch the spectacular autumn leaves in eastern Canada, enjoy long hikes in the crisp air, visit world-class museums and galleries, or bask in the spotlight at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Winter

Much of the Canadian landscape is blanketed in snow in winter, with snowfall beginning in late October and temperatures generally going below the freezing point. However, winters are much milder on the west coast, where if any snow falls, it doesn't stay long, and golfers have been known to hit the links year-round.

Canadian winters offer ideal conditions for dream ski vacations. The ski season runs from December until late March in the east, and extends to late May (and sometimes even June) in the ski hills of the west. In winter, you can experience a host of winter festivals and ice carnivals, and the chance to glide along the world's largest skating rink, the Rideau Canal.

Practical Information


Embassies & Consulates

Canada hosts numerous embassies, consulates and high commissions that provide assistance to foreign travelers. If you need help with documentation (e.g., replacing a lost passport or extending a visa) or dealing with legal, medical or emergency matters, contact your country's diplomatic mission or consular office in Canada.

International Travelers to Canada - Contacting your Consulate in Canada

To search a directory of consular offices across Canada by country of origin, visit the Foreign Affairs Canada website.

Health & Medical

Travel Health Insurance

Before leaving home, review your health plan to see whether your coverage extends to travel outside your home country. If you're not covered, be sure to obtain travel health insurance before visiting Canada. And remember to carry your insurance ID card and emergency numbers with you when you visit.

Canadian Hospitals & Medical Services

Canadian hospitals and medical services provide an excellent standard of care. Most hospitals are publicly managed with costs for services set by provincial and hospital authorities. Hospital care for non-residents of Canada is charged at a daily rate or calculated based on medical condition and length of stay. Charges vary across the country, but range from $1,000-$2,000 CDN a day.

Hospital emergency rooms are open 24 hours for emergency care. Most cities also have walk-in clinics where non-emergency treatment or consultation is available without an appointment. Costs vary by clinic and medical attention required. Check local phone books in the yellow pages section under "Clinics, Medical" for a list of walk-in clinics.

Prescriptions & Pharmacies

Remember to bring along all prescription medications you expect to need during your visit, as well as copies of your prescription in case you run out. You'll find pharmacies easily accessible throughout Canada. Most large cities have at least one 24-hour pharmacy operation and many grocery stores have in-store pharmacies.

All prescription medicines should be carried in their original containers, with pharmacy labels indicating the type of drugs and that they are being used under prescription. If you don't have the original package, bring along a copy of the prescription or a letter from your doctor.

It is also a good idea to bring along an extra pair of prescription eyeglasses or contact lenses, or alternatively, a prescription from your eye doctor in the event your glasses or contact lenses need to be replaced.

Emergency Services

Most Canadian cities have 911 emergency services. In an emergency, you can reach police, fire or ambulance services by dialing 911 on any telephone. If 911 service is unavailable, dial "0" for the operator and ask for police, fire or ambulance service. There is no charge for emergency calls placed from a public pay phone.

Immunizations & Vaccinations

No special immunizations or vaccinations are required to visit Canada. If you're traveling with children, it's always a good idea to ensure they are up-to-date on routine childhood immunizations before international travel. Contact a qualified health professional in your area for more advice. For current travel health information, visit the Public Health Agency of Canada website.

Currency & Money

Canadian Currency

The Canadian currency system uses dollars ($) and cents (¢) similar to the US, Australia and New Zealand.

Canada now has one- and two-dollar coins, often called the "loonie" and the "toonie" respectively, in addition to 0.01¢, 0.05¢, 0.10¢ and 0.25¢ coins. Paper money comes in different colors and designs. The most common are $5 bills (blue), $10 bills (purple), $20 bills (green), $50 bills (red) and $100 bills (brown).

Most hotels, stores and restaurants will accept US dollars, though sometimes at a lower exchange rate than at banks or airports. Large hotels will usually give you a rate similar to those at the bank. It is always a good idea to convert some of your money to Canadian currency prior to leaving home.

Exchanging Currency in Canada

You can change money at any recognized financial institution, bank, trust company or currency exchange in Canada. Many major stores, hotels and restaurants will also exchange currency, but often offer a lower exchange rate than a financial institution. Be sure to convert some of your money prior to leaving home.

Sales Taxes & GST

The GST, or "goods and services tax," is a 5% federal tax applied to most goods and services provided in Canada.

In all provinces except Alberta, there is an additional provincial sales tax (PST) of between 5-10% added to purchases and financial transactions. The territories do not add PST. The HST or "harmonized sales tax" is a 13% tax that replaces the PST and GST in the provinces of Newfoundland & Labrador, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. Some hotels and retailers include the GST or HST in their prices; others add it on separately.

Visitor Tax Rebates

Non-resident visitors and non-GST/HST-registered businesses visiting Canada may be entitled to take part in the Foreign Convention and Tour Incentive Program (FCTIP). Rebates may be available to those who purchase short-term and/or camping accommodations in Canada. Non-GST/HST-registered businesses coming to Canada for a convention and/or as an exhibitor may qualify for a rebate as well.

Credit Cards & Bank Machines

Major credit cards such as American Express, MasterCard and Visa are widely accepted in Canada. Your financial institution at home will automatically make the currency exchange before you receive your monthly statement. Be sure you contact your credit card company to let them know you'll be using the card outside the country.

Using an ABM (automatic bank machine), also known as an ATM (automated teller machine), is an easy way to access cash while traveling abroad. Most international bankcard systems, including Interac, Plus, Cirrus and Maestro, will work at most ABMs in Canada. You'll find them conveniently located at banks, stores, airports and many other locations. You can also get cash advances on your credit card at an ABM.

It's a good idea to notify your home bank that you'll be using your bank card in Canada to find out whether any special conditions and withdrawal limits may apply.

Travelers Cheques

Travelers cheques can often be used as cash as most Canadian restaurants, hotels and stores will accept small-denomination Canadian Dollar travelers cheques. You may be asked to produce a passport for identification when cashing your travelers cheques.

Banking Hours

Standard banking hours are Monday to Thursday from 9:30 am until 4:00 pm. Many banks are open to 6:00 pm on Friday. Some banks and specific branches may be open later on weeknights and even on Saturdays. Trust companies are generally open from 9 am to 6 pm on weekdays and on Saturday mornings.

Tipping

Tipping is a common practice in Canada. Tips or service charges are not usually added to restaurant bills in Canada, but server salaries are based on the assumption that staff will receive a good proportion of income in tips. Some restaurants will also place a mandatory service charge on a bill for large groups. In general, you should reward good service by tipping 15-20% of the total amount.

Barbers, hairdressers and taxi drivers are usually tipped 15%. Bellhops, doormen, porters and other staff at hotels, airports and railway stations are generally tipped $1-$2 CDN per item carried. Tipping the server both at the bar and at the table is common in Canadian bars and nightclubs.

Covered Bridges, Country Lanes

New Brunswick has the most remarkable collection of covered bridges; a miniature road trip adventure with lots of roadside attractions.

Read moreYou’re driving south, following the Saint John River. Turning off the highway onto a charming country road, you climb over a hill and spot it: the old covered bridge. The silver-grey planks shed tiny slivers of light, recalling a world of horse-drawn carriages and young lovers stealing kisses in the dark. You venture through the barn-like entrance; close your eyes and make a wish.

New Brunswick has a bounty of 63 historic covered bridges, with most dating from the early 1900s. Visit the 29 covered bridges of the River Valley Scenic Drive on a romantic journey through rolling farmland, forests and quaint communities.

Your first stop is Hartland, home to world's longest covered bridge (it’s 1,282-ft long) and now a National Historic Site. Turn on your headlights—and tell your passengers to hold their breath and cross their fingers—as you journey across the Saint John River. Covered bridges dot the landscape south all the way to the coast. Pick up guidebooks at most tourist bureaus and talk to the locals to map out a route.

Kings County has 16 covered wooden bridges—the province’s largest collection. Don’t miss Becaguimec River No. 3 in Mangrum, built in 1909. Drive through Fundy National Park to see the elegant, red-painted covered bridge that crosses the Point Wolfe River. Near Sussex, stop by the famous Oldfields Covered Bridge, then head south to St. Martins, famed for its twin covered bridges.

Kayaking Northern Saskatchewan

Journey through a little-known wilderness of 100,000 lakes and rivers in the comfort of a kayak or a canoe.

Read morePaddle through vast Saskatchewan wilderness in the self-contained comfort of a stable, kayak or canoe, on waters unchanged since the time of fur traders and voyageurs. Surge through rapids on the Churchill River or travel silently on tranquil Lac La Ronge, Deschambault Lake or many others. Absorb the stillness of the ancient boreal forest that seems to go on forever. With each turn of your head, see a new horizon beckoning you. Revel in the almost endless days of a northern summer.

Share quiet lakes with feeding moose; count beaver lodges and listen for the slap of beaver tails. Dine on northern pike, walleye or trout that you pull fresh from the waters by your campsite. Learn new wilderness skills and tips from local guides steeped in the geology of the Precambrian Shield and the rich history of the area.

Settle down each night and sleep in the unforgettable tranquility of a northern night. Awake refreshed, breakfast in the bright sunshine on hearty travelers’ fare, then slide your kayak or canoe into the mirrored morning waters. Let each dip of your paddle push you deeper and farther into a world unchanged since the glaciers retreated over 8,000 years ago.

Hike Canada’s Far East

Hike along Canada’s famed East coast trail, experiencing the rugged beauty and fascinating culture of Newfoundland’s coast.

Read moreYou feel blessed as you amble through the wilderness paradise—boreal forest, fresh air and quiet solitude—of Newfoundland’s East Coast Trail. Hike from village to village, marveling at the vivid yellow, green, red and pink houses clinging precariously to ancient cliff faces. Walk along the rugged shoreline past towering cliffs and deep fjords; gaze in awe at the Spout, a natural, wave-driven geyser found midway between Petty Harbour and Bay Bulls.

Enjoy a snack atop a 76-m (250-ft) sea-stack meadow. Duck as thousands of puffins and other seabirds glide effortlessly around you. Catch your breath as you watch thousand-year-old icebergs drift by. Glimpse majestic humpback whales; if you’re lucky, you’ll see one breach, lifting its 36 tons out of the water. Feel your stomach tense as you sway on La Manche's pendulous suspension bridge. See if you can spot the world's southernmost caribou herd.

Visit the quaint community of Petty Harbour-Maddox Cove, situated near Cape Spear, North America’s most easterly point. Smile at the friendly locals, even if you can’t understand their dialect. Check into an inviting B&B, then head to a local pub. Tap your feet and dance a jig to the infectious, fiddle-driven music there, and be sure to sample traditional treats like jam-jams, lassy mogs, bog-apples and figgy duff.

Watch the sun set over the fathomless Atlantic, and understand why the Flat Earth Society says this is one of the four corners of the world.

Arctic Safari

Commune with belugas and muskox, discover gourmet Arctic cuisine, dream under a duvet in your five-star tent.

Read moreYour travel compass pointed north, and here you are: at the top of the world—500 miles above the Arctic Circle on Somerset Island in the territory of Nunavut. The adventure is everything you imagined, and more. Kayak through ice-chunky waters teeming with ghostly white belugas; watch as the whales blow steamy plumes. Glimpse stampeding muskox while on a mountain bike. Laugh as feather-light summer snowflakes dust your face on river-raft ride; your heart races when a distant white spot turns into a polar bear or snowy owl.

Guided by a renowned polar explorer, you’ll visit an Arctic fox den to watch the furry cubs play, and investigate mysterious Thule ruins crafted from giant whale bones.

At day’s end your small group returns to Canada’s northernmost adventure lodge, a remote, tented complex filled with the heady aroma of roast muskox with all the trimmings, paired with fine wine.

Then, with the midnight sun lighting your way, retire to the rustic luxury of your "cabin," a high-tech permanent tent amid an outback silence so profound it will lull you into the deepest sleep.

Canadian wildlife

Howl with wolves, swim with belugas, stalk muskox, count grizzly bears, ride with buffalo, watch caribou run.
Read moreThrough binoculars, spy grizzlies prowling a shoreline. Hear eagles cry from their rainforest nests. Focus on a landscape swarming with caribou. Marvel as a cloud of white geese—it looks like a field of snow—launches skyward. Strap on a snorkel and swim with belugas. Munch lunch with a moose in your sights. Laugh at a puffin’s awkward antics.

It’s wild out there in our great big backyard. Canada has the world’s largest wolf population—get out there and howl with them. Track mysterious blonde Kermode “spirit bears” with an Aboriginal guide. Trek amid mountains where big-horned Dall sheep perch on precarious cliffs. Canoe past whooping cranes dancing on ballerina legs amid wildflowers. Stand on the frozen ocean’s edge watching pods of unicorn-tusked narwhal tumble and play; listen to Inuit tales about the magical creatures. With all that going on, grab your camera and learn about wildlife photography in the field from a professional. Then practice your new skills on two muskoxen butting heads as your subject.

When the critters head to bed, dine gourmet and local out there in the bush, where fish fill the streams and veggies thrive in long daylight hours. Then slide beneath a duvet or into a sleeping bag beneath the midnight sun.

Luminato

Enter a world where artistic and cultural boundaries are blurred, creating experiences that will illuminate your soul.

Read moreYou step off the subway in downtown Toronto, one of the most multicultural cities in the world, and immediately encounter an eye-opening art installation by internationally exhibited artists such as LAb[au]. Welcome to Luminato, the Toronto festival of arts and creativity.

Tonight, you’re headed to Yonge-Dundas Square to rock out at Luminato’s free, opening night party. But you’re here for the theatre and dance, too. You’re determined to see the critically acclaimed Lypsynch, directed by the famed Robert Lepage. As for dance, what’ll it be—the National Ballet of Canada’s groundbreaking, genre-bending interpretation of Carmen, the Canadian premiere of Nederland Dance Theater or the world premiere of Tono by Red Sky Performance? Decisions, decisions.

The next day it’s off to The Distillery—a historic, pedestrian-only district—to stroll and enjoy more music, art installations and interactive events celebrating the city’s multiculturalism. Afterwards you make your way to the Berkley Street Theatre for 5 O’clock Bells, the critically acclaimed one-man show on jazz legend Lenny Breau by Pierre Brault—a highlight of the Luminato Guitar Festival.

Meantime, you’re on the lookout for the Red Ball, which has bounced into Toronto for Luminato during its global trek. Finally, you head down to the waterfront for the closing weekend celebrations—a feast of celebrations that feature Cirque du Soleil.

Canada, Aboriginal Style

Paddle a dugout canoe, mush sled dogs, stomp to a beat at a Pow Wow, nibble caribou jerky, sleep in a tipi.

Read moreDance a jig to a Métis fiddle tune. Savor wild salmon grilled on a fragrant cedar plank. Paddle a canoe down a river wilderness. Toss aside your shyness and launch into throat-singing. Hike through ancient towering rainforest and touch damp moss. Smell sweet grass smolder in a purifying ritual. Cheer on a walrus using his tusks to haul himself onto an ice floe. Weave a basket.

Aboriginal folks are proud to share their culture, so join them at a traditional feast or walk through the woods as native healers do. They can teach you how to carve a totem pole or feel the freedom of riding horses across the prairie. Visit cultural centers shaped like longhouses. Party at Pow Wows where elaborate dresses, masks and feathers whirl in a blur of color. Or watch an Inuit carver calmly unleashing a polar bear from a chunk of soapstone.

Dine gourmet on the wild, the original organic. Grilled elk, caribou stew, muskox sausages, caramelized sky apples. Drop a fishing line into a remote lake or sink into a sauna bathed in the glow of the midnight sun. Then, turn in to your tipi or your stylish Aboriginal lodge to awaken in the morning to the aroma of freshly baked bannock bread.

Signal Hill History

Climb Newfoundland’s historic Signal Hill; stand where fierce battles were waged and the first transatlantic broadcast received.

Read moreTravel to St. John’s, Newfoundland—the oldest city in North America—and you can’t miss it: a rugged, barren hill that is this port city’s preeminent landmark. It looms over the entrance to the harbor, capped by the ominous, wind-worn Cabot Tower. Welcome to Signal Hill.

The view is spectacular from this National Historic Site, stretching from the harbor out to open waters of the Atlantic. You marvel at the distance and the world-changing event that took place here on Dec. 12, 1901—the world’s first wireless transatlantic broadcast. At the Waves over Waves exhibit you learn about the day Guglielmo Marconi launched a kite, with an antenna attached, 509 ft into the air. Moments later he received a Morse code signal that traveled 2,175 mi from England.

A trip to the Visitor Interpretation Centre reveals that as early as 1704, flags raised on the hill conveyed strategic information about approaching ships to the harbor tucked below.

You hit the trail and tour shore batteries constructed on either side of the Narrows back in the late 1800s. Then it’s time for the period costumes, guns and cannon fire of the Signal Hill Tattoo, a reenactment of 18th-century military exercises on the same grounds as where the final North American battle of the Seven Years’ War was waged between the British and the French in 1762. As the day winds down you enjoy a picnic, a sunset and a glorious view of St. John’s Harbour.

Okanagan Wine Tours

Sniff, swirl, savor and spit on a wine-tasting tour in BC’s Okanagan Valley, the “Napa of the North.”

Read moreSniff, swirl, savor and spit surrounded by spectacular mountains and beautiful lakes in British Columbia’s sunny Okanagan Valley, often called the “Napa of the North.” Sample an astonishing riesling or an exquisite cabernet franc. Meditate on the merits of a pyramid-aged wine. Enjoy a panoramic view of 96-mile-long Okanagan Lake as you dine on pork chops and jumbo prawns paired with a crisp pinot gris. Even though you can’t tell a shiraz from a syrah, you’re determined to visit as many of the region’s 100-plus wineries as you can.

Delight in “nectar of the gods”: icewine made from grapes harvested at 14 to 17.6 degrees Fahrenheit or lower—often by moonlight—and pressed while still frozen. Secretly gloat as you buy labels not available in any liquor store, anticipating the envy of your oenophile friends. Listen as owners reveal the stories behind names like Laughing Stock, See Ya Later Ranch, Elephant Island, Golden Beaver and Blasted Church. Try to get your hands on some of the valley’s last remaining Maréchal Foch, or to get your tongue around a Qwam Qwmt from Nk’Mip (pronounced “in-ka-meep”), an Aboriginal-owned-and-operated winery.

Come during one of the Okanagan’s seasonal wine festivals; watch grape stomping in the fall, and learn about storing, aging and food pairing. Treat your taste buds to a fruit wine made from apricots, blackcurrants or Fuji apples; you can branch out, there are more fruits than grapes!

Shediac Lobster Tales

Let real lobster fishermen put you in the action. Haul in lobster traps, learn about lobster cuisine and finally savour one yourself.

Read moreYou discover your sea legs on a boat in Shediac Bay, standing next to experienced lobster fishermen. You’re shown the correct way to haul in lobster traps (yes, you do it yourself!), then shown how to cook these famed Maritime crustaceans (the secret’s in gauging the boil time to get just the right tenderness). When all is ready, you sit down on board to savor a mouth-watering, freshly cooked lobster dinner. No regular knives and forks here—just a lobster cracker and fork, plus your two hands, will do!

As you cruise these scenic waters, sip a cool drink and enjoy panoramic views of Northumberland Straight from your top-deck chair. Make a note to explore some of finest beaches in Canada; Parlee Beach boasts the warmest saltwater north of Virginia.

While on board, you’ll hear a few “old salt” tales shared by folks who live and work in the fisheries. The people here are deeply proud of their New Brunswick Acadian heritage; you’ll find their hospitality in songs, smiles and of course, in that succulent lobster supper.
