When to Visit

A year round destination, Canada's magnificent scenery and cultural treasures welcome visitors especially during summer. Fall (Autumn) particularly during September and October, offers stunning colour across the country. Winter in eastern Canada is notorious for being quite harsh, so if you fear the cold, best to avoid the months outside of June to October.

Customs

The ethnic diversity of Canada means that rules of social propriety are quite complex. There are certain general expectations. Greeting, except in formal settings, does not require touching in the form of embraces or handshakes. Behavior in public should be subdued. Rowdiness and loud speech, for example, are considered inappropriate except under special circumstances or in places such as bars or other venues. As a community, Canadians are in general soft spoken, patient, and almost apologetic in their public behavior. They are also in general tolerant of the complex network of cultural differences in public behavior, more so in cities perhaps, where such diversity is more common place.
