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…

First and for most, I know that 48 hours is not nearly enough time... that being said does anyone have any "absolutely must see's"?? I have read about Stanley Park and it seems like a great place to start. I have also heard good things about the Science World. I've heard good things about Victoria Island as well but I imagine that will take the entire day. Any help would be great. Oh and I have a rental car so I can get pretty much anywhere.

Hello,

We have a trip booked for Montréal, and currently are looking at Hotel Y near the Bell Centre. I called the hotel direct and they said they don't have their own parking onsite, and they have mentioned a garage that's CA$20/day across the street. Does anybody know if there any options for parking in this area with in/out privileges (vs. having to pay every time we leave the garage)? I have called a couple hotels already who said they allow in/out privileges for their guests but not for…

Hi I'm an English guy travelling solo. I moved to Toronto about 6 weeks ago (on a 2 year IEC working visa) and have had an awesome time with all the summer activities and celebrations that have been going on here but rather than settle here (for those who haven't been to Toronto I highly recommend it), I thought I would spend until maybe October travelling around Canada to see what else the country has to offer!

I would love your help please. Have any of you Lonely Planet travellers done this…

Hi,
It was helpful to read the earlier post (ou04snr Thank you.)which sort of coincides with our thoughts (although no pregnancy) to visit Banff, lake Louise and Jasper in mid September. We plan to leave Calgary as early as we can on Day 1 to spend the night in Banff, Night 2 sleep at Lake Louise and then Night 3 in Jasper before taking a day to travel back to Calgary.
Distances aren't great between Banff and Lake Louise so should we rather spend 2 nights in the same place and explore from…

I am planning a 5 day trip to Montreal. But there is one thing that I cannot decide and that is whether it is worth splitting the time between Montreal and also Ottawa. If I decide to do this, how much time would you recommend for Ottawa? What sights would you recommend?
I am looking to go in Mid September.

Thanks for any help!

Hi!

I want to take my chances with the northern lights in Canada in September. My original goal was to get as close as possible to the magnetic northpole with my meager means (public transport and hostels). I have found some nice options, like Churchill and Dawson city, but they don't really work as well as I wish, since instead of doing a Northern lights tour I prefer to stay longer (about a week) and then go out and watch them away from city lights. This does not seem possible in Churchill…
