Key Contact Details and Important Information


Canada, along with the United States, has some of the most expensive healthcare on the planet for temporary visitors. Always contact the 24-hour assistance helpline even for minor treatment.

Best Time to Visit

This will completely depend on your destination of choice, as Canada’s weather differs between regions and your trip type; for example, skiers will find the best powder over the winter months, whereas nature lovers will enjoy the autumn foliage. Overall the best time to visit Canada is usually in the summer for great weather, but May and September should offer good weather and smaller crowds.

What to See and Do

Canada is a very large country, and with such diverse activities on offer, you may not be able to tick everything off your list in one trip. To help you get started, here are some of our favourite activities;

  • Canada is known for its stunning national parks, so make sure you walk or hike around at least one – Banff is a great choice.
  • If you like sport then watching an Ice Hockey match is a must for a taste of Canadian culture.
  • Get a panoramic view of Toronto by reaching the top of the CN Tower.
  • Visit Niagara Falls – a boat ride is a must to get the best view.
  • Ski in the Canadian Rockies.

What to Eat and Drink

Pancakes with maple syrup are a must try for breakfast and fresh British Columbia salmon for dinner. Drink ice wine or ice cider from Ontario for a true taste of Canada.
