Travel tips for Canada

Depending on your citizenship, a visitor visa may be required for entry into Canada. You will also need to prove you have money for your stay and that you have the means to leave at the end of your trip. Depending on your citizenship, you may also require a temporary resident (visitor) visa.

The Canadian dollar is the currency used in Canada, but the US dollar is also accepted in locations close to the Canada–US border and in some establishments.

The average temperature in Canada depends on the region you are visiting. During the winter, travellers commonly visit Quebec, Alberta or British Columbia for the ski season, and during the summer, travellers visit all areas of the country, especially Ontario and the east coast. The peak travel season is between May and September. The average temperature during the summer months ranges from as low as 20°C in northern regions, such as Whitehorse, to 28°C in Ontario and British Columbia.

Now that you have these travel tips, it’s time to get your travel insurance for Canada organized.
