TRAVEL GUIDE to CANADA
This is your ultimate travel guide to Canada!
I think Canada is on Top 3 places to live in the world. I hear a lot of Europeans dreaming of moving to Canada. It’s different than the States, so those who could not live in the States, prefer Canada as the best option.
Also, Canada is a great travel destination and very safe, with almost zero violent crimes, so for a Solo Traveler, it is a perfect destination. You have so many places to explore in Canada!
Furthermore, Canada is home to 16 UNESCO World Heritage Sites!
Nonetheless, it also has the longest ski season in the world, polar bears, the Northern Lights, and the very famous poutine dish (fries covered in squeaky cheese).
SAY HELLO IN CANADA:
Bon matin = the usual French Bonjour (but never use in France bon matin) = Good day
Eh = “I know, eh?” — this interjection is popularly considered to be a marker of Canadian speech.

USMCA: The U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) entered into force on July 1, 2020, replacing the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).
The former North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) was the most important feature of the U.S.-Mexico bilateral commercial relationship. As of January 1, 2008, all tariffs and quotas were eliminated on U.S. exports to Mexico and Canada. The new agreement, USMCA creates a more balanced environment for trade and supports high-paying jobs for Americans, and will grow the North American economy.
Language: Canada has two official languages: English and French, with over 80% of Canadians speaking English.
Currency: The Canadian Dollar is the currency of Canada. Duty-free shops, border crossings, border towns, and Canada’s most popular destinations and attractions accept U.S. currency.
CARD PAYMENTS AND CASH WITHDRAWALS:
Visa and Mastercard are the most widely accepted by any merchants that take credit cards in Canada. Credit card issuers may charge fees for international transactions so I suggest you use the REVOLUT card to eliminate bank fees.
ATM: are available everywhere you go in case you need to withdraw cash.
Plugs: The plugs in Canada are type types A and B. Plug type A has two flat parallel pins and plug type B has two flat parallel pins and a grounding pin. The standard voltage is 120 V, and the standard frequency is 60Hz.
Connexion: The Internet is very fast, and all countries are on 5G. Wi-Fi connection everywhere you go, free or on demand.
Best Time to visit
Canada has a lot to offer in every season, so I would suggest deciding in advance what you want to do and afterward looking at when would be the best time to visit.
If you want to go to Canada, autumn would be a perfect season, when the entire country changes its colors and displays a new wardrobe.
During the winter season, Vancouver gets very little snow, while Montreal is covered in meters of snow and it is freezing cold!
