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…

US motorcycle insurance for bike registered in Ontario with Ontario license

Hi

I'm a Canadian who spends 6 months a year in the states. The insurance quote I got in Ontario was sky-high (4500 CAD per year) so need to know if I can get US insurance which is much cheaper without registering my bike in a state or transfering over my Ontario license for a state license.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Three Waves in Canadian History

People interested in Canada would be well-advised to read some biographies of Canadians.

Here is a little piece of a biography of a fellow Canadian.-Ron Price, Australia

It was a bad year. The stock market crash precipitated the beginning of several years of economic bleakness that have come to be known as the Depression. Roger White, the Canadian poet I…

Parking in/outside of Quebec City

Hello,

I'm planning my first trip to Quebec City and I will be driving there from the U.S. I am trying to find the best way to park. I was thinking of maybe going to a train station outside the city, parking, and taking the train in. But then it occurred to me that maybe the long term parking at the Gare du Palais station might be easier and cheaper overall (after I pay for parking at another station and then buy a ticket). Assuming that I don't need to prove I'm riding the train to use the…

Family holiday, itinerary advice please (out of Vancouver)

We are planning to do a 7 night cruise (round trip to/from Vancouver) next June, then we want to spend another 5 nights on land before flying home to Australia.

There are 4 of us, myself & my husband, plus 2 children (aged 5 & 7 yrs at time of travel).

We'd prefer to stay in one place, maximum 2 different places, so we're not constantly packing/unpacking/transferring between places. The priority is to see wildlife.

Where do you suggest? Budget is an issue, for example, we've ruled…

Crossing Canada (Van-->Toronto or Montreal)

Hi,

I am currently studying in Van, finishing up for the term in early December, and need to get to Toronto by around December 20 to meet some friends. I was thinking that it would be fun to take the train rather than fly, seeing that I don't have any time restrictions, and it would be an easy way to see scenery that I have never seen before, and (at least in the case of the prairies) will probably never see again. I have a couple of questions.

1) Is there a way to purchase a ticket that…
