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…
My husband and I are going with a group of friends at the end February to whistler for 14 days for a ski-trip.
We all have a few days in Vancouver prior, any recommendations for hotels? We won't have a vehicle, so would prefer something central to some good shopping spots, restaurants etc.
We have also locked in a Monster Jam event, and Ice Hockey match. Any other recommendations to occupy our time?

We booked through Expedia with Vancouver Airport budget for a Mid size car. On arrival they did not have the model I preferred, so the counter person offered an upgrade for only a little more, $37.

Googling this issue with this Budget location shows many cases of bait an switch, and some of outright fraud.
Our advice is to review…
Just wanted a quick update on living costs in Canada; I read a lot of conflicting information on different pages so I thought it'd be useful to ask on here. I plan to (attempt to) find a job and move to Canada for ~1 year. I was just wondering what a reasonable wage/ pay rate would be to live. I know it will vary between small towns and big cities, and between provinces, but a ball park figure of what you think would be OK to live on.
