Helpful Information About Canada:

Currency – Canada’s unit of currency is the Canadian Dollar ($CAD). Coins have values of 5, 10, 25 & 50 cents, $1 & $2 – often called “loonies” and “toonies”, and notes have values of $5, $10, $20, $50 & $100. Tipping is widely practised in Canada as service charges are not generally included in the bill and waiters depend heavily on tips for their income. You would generally be expected to pay 15% – 20% to waiters and taxi drivers.

Canadian Population – There are approximately 35 million people living throughout Canada, with Toronto, Montreal and Calgary being the most populated cities.

Weather – The weather varies greatly depending on where in Canada you are – temperatures can drop below -40°C in some of the northern areas during winter, while summer can bring with it temperatures of 35°C and above in the more coastal areas.

Language – The official languages of Canada are English and French, with more than half of the population speaking English, while just over 21% speak only French. But don’t stress, Wridgways can provide you with more information and help you decide which Canadian location is right for you.
