Canada Branch FAQ

This thread is intended to contain information useful to people travelling to Canada - please feel free to add anything relevant to it! Before we start though, here's some advice from the TT team:

1. Do a TT search! At least five posters a week ask what to do in Toronto, whether to go visit Niagara Falls on their way around the world, and whether it's possible to work under the table/overstay a tourist visa. The road is well travelled. Find those threads, add a reply (which brings the topic to…

relative cost of living in Vancouver

we keep hearing of the stratospheric cost of living in Vancouver. Is this justified? I know to buy a house is out of the question, but when I spent time there, it didn't strike me that things were priced so differently than in other Canadian cities. If anything, restaurants seemed cheaper and vastly better than here in Ottawa. Same thing for public transit actually. Are there things I didn't see as a casual visitor?

I am contemplating a job there and pondering whether the substantial pay cut…

2million ont travellers cannot be wrong

that's how many ontarions went to buffalo for there flights. rather than use cash cow for govt. Toronto airport .

Hiking, off season

1000 Islands from Toronto.

Hi all
My elderly parents are visiting Canada soon and for half the time I won't be with them; they want to see the 1000 Islands, preferably as a daytrip from Toronto and they dont want to do any rental car driving while in the country.
Yes there's an option of taking trains to Kingston and back, with a 6 hours stop there about lunch time and finding a island cruise place.
But does anyone know of any operators running a coach-an-Islands trip from Toronto itself, to make things simpler?
I can't…
