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…

As a contemplative nature lover and as an ecological peace seeker, if you could live anywhere you wanted to in British Columbia... where would you live and why? Don't worry about whether it's an expensive or less expensive place to live.

Don't forget to explain why you would choose the area.

All those who would choose to NOT live in BC can simply skip this thread altogether.

I'm 25% fluent on DuoLingo - French and I've also been using Paul Noble's French audio course. Lately, I tried out an italki trial lesson. Will be having my second one tomorrow with a different instructor.

Then I got the idea why not move to Quebec City and learn. I've read that moving to another country doesn't necessarily mean you will become fluent. Look at all the Spanish speaking people here in the USA who can't speak English.

However, if I went to a good immersion school maybe that would…

Hi,

I will be traveling around Newfoundland in mid-late June, and while I've got a 3 days booked in at the end of the trip in St. Johns, and I've got a rental car sorted for the duration of the trip, I'd prefer not to have to commit/pre-book accomodation and just see where I end up each evening. I plan to take in some of Gros Morne, perhaps Terra Nova, but would like the freedom to roam around.

Is it really necessary to book ahead outside of St. John's?
Thanks!
-Mark

We will be arriving in Vancouver by air in a few days. I have searched the net for customs concessions for Australians entering Canada from Australia and the USA. All I can find is concessions for Canadians entering Canada, and Americans entering Canada. We would be grateful is someone could point us to a website that applies to us.
Many thanks in advance.
