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…

right in toronto city downtown is old city hall. there, discussing its future use. gamut runs from boutiques to outright demo. not one thought given to hostel use. as it is ZERO budget housing for backpacker traveller. right now, imo would be ideal. use. plus? also under current methods HOSTEL ?? means housing mainly for street people. do not restrict occupancy to the travellers. imagine the $150 a night hotel owners have much input with city council to keep it that way.

Come back to Kingston station and travel by the next available train to Ottawa, the capital of Canada.
The train turns left after Kingston, with the lovely St. Lawrence river…

  2. Timing of stay in Whistler. We are…
