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…

Visitors to Toronto during World Cup get added value. Especially if Italy, Portugal or Brazil are playing that day, cafes in the associated neighbourhoods (for eg. we have more than one Little Italy) will sell-out by game time. Oversized screens, a charged atmosphere and great food await the curious. I lived in Little Italy during the '82 final. I had just finished a double shift at work immediately prior to racing back to catch the match. What a party afterwards!
Done I am. Gooooooooooooooooal!

‎Hi guys, I've been thinking about making my first trip across the Atlantic a trip to Canada. I will (probably) be solo and I don't drive, so I figure it makes sense for me to stay in one of the big cities where there will be endless things to do and good transport. What do you guys recommend? Toronto or Vancouver seems like the obvious choice to me, and sometimes the obvious choice is the best one for a first visit? Also open to suggestions on best time of year to visit (presumably not Winter)…

Hi,
I’m looking for experiences traveling with a baby as the only parent, from Canada to US and back. It’s just my name on the birth certificate but I am still nervous as I have no other documentation. I can’t get straight answers from US Embassy by email as they have to say that they recommend notarized letters. I got my child’s Canadian passport no problem!

A really basic question! -

I'll be travelling first to Montreal for two days, then a week in Ottawa, then a week in Vancouver. If I buy a sim card in Montreal and then use it for data/talk in Ottawa or Vancouver, surely I'll have to pay high rates because I'm roaming within Canada... right? I can't find an answer online.

Hi everyone I have been reading many other people’s posts where people have had the idea of taraveling Canada in an rv in winter but all have abandoned the idea.

I am currently planning to spend a week in the east then have a month to be able to travel from the east in an rv converted truck to the west where I will spend another week. Along the way I plan to ski and hike through a winter wonderland spending a lot of my time in national parks or in little villages and town meeting the locals.
