Canada Placeholder

Americans travel to Europe, sometimes forgetting Canada is right next door. Those who want the beauty of the Alps might save a pretty penny or two by visiting the Canadian Rockies. Those looking to enjoy themselves in Paris might find it mistakable after a great meal in Canada’s French-speaking mecca Montreal. Canada is beautiful. The people are incredibly nice. The food is excellent. The drinks are strong. What else do you want? Enjoy these tips below:

Capital City: Ottawa

Language: Primarily English, however French is widely spoken in the Quebec province and to a lesser extent in Ontario. You don’t need to know French to get around in Quebec, but you should know that many of the street signs in major cities such as Montreal are written in French.

Currency: Canadian Dollar (CAD). CAD is currently 1.3 for 1 USD. Some locations throughout Canada take USD, especially those closer to the U.S. border, however you should make the exchange in both small and large denominations for CAD.

Power Adapter: In Canada the power sockets are of type A and B. The standard voltage is 120 V and the standard frequency is 60 Hz.

Crime & Safety: Canada is consistently one of the safest places in the world to live. Aside from the normal vigilance against being “flashy” and inviting the occasional pick-pocketer, you can’t help but be safe in beautiful Canada.

Emergency Number: 911
