What should I consider before travelling to Canada?
Before anything else, do you have the right money? Canadian currency is called Canadian dollars and while you’re out there it will be referred to plainly as dollars – but don’t get this confused with American dollars. Also, the notes are waterproof, so if you decide to cannonball into a lake with your wallet in your pocket, your money will be salvageable.
If you’re a British citizen travelling to Canada, you’ll be required to apply online for something called an Electronic Travel Authorization. The ETA exists to screen all travellers before they arrive; it lasts for five years or until your passport expires and costs $7 to process. If you haven’t done it yet, you can do so here. But don’t panic if you haven’t – until autumn 2016 you will still be able to enter the country providing you have the correct travel documents.
The last thing you should probably be wary of is the language. Although the majority of Canadians speak English, Quebec and a few other areas speak French as a first language. But the majority of people you encounter will be bilingual.
