"Sales Taxes and currency" Canada Local Custom Tip by daffodil

Canada Local Customs: 138 reviews and 102 photos

Sales taxes range from 7% to more than 18% so remember this when you are at the checkout. Visitors can get this money back at the end of their trip buy filling out a form that they can get at the airport of from tourist agent.
Tipping is generally 15%. There are no $1 or $2 bills here, we have coins instead, so your pockets get heavy very fast! The paper currency is colourful, so it is easy to distinguish the denominations.

Review Helpfulness: 0.5 out of 5 stars
