To make your trip to Canada an enjoyable one, please note the following handy hints:
Travel insurance, including maximum health care coverage, is always highly recommended.
Although by world standards Canada is a safe country with first-class medical services, low-cost health care is only offered to Canadian citizens and permanent residents.
Tourists do not fall under the national health care system. Therefore, any medical attention you may need while in Canada could end up being very expensive.
Tipping is recommended. As a general rule about 15% of your bill is acceptable.
For railway, airport and hotel porters, a $1 tip may suffice (but tip hotel porters more if the hotel you are staying at is very upmarket).
The electric current in Canada is 110 volts, 60 AC.
Adaptors must be used with appliances from overseas operating on different voltages.
