Visit the Citizenship and Immigration Canada ( p) website for a complete listing of countries whose citizens require visas to enter Canada and for on-line application information and forms. All other visitors should contact their Canadian consulate or embassy to learn what documents are required. Contact information for Canadian embassies around the world can be found at the Foreign Affairs Canada and International Trade Canada ( website. To learn more about Canadian customs regulations, visit the Canada Border Services Agency ( website. Embassies & Consulates Canada hosts numerous embassies, consulates and high commissions that provide assistance to foreign travelers. If you need help with documentation (e.g., replacing a lost passport or extending a visa) or dealing with legal, medical or emergency matters, contact your country's diplomatic mission or consular office in Canada. To search a directory of consular offices across Canada by country of origin, visit the Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada ( website Participants are advised to inquire at the nearest Canadian Embassy or Consulate at least 60 days in advance of the meeting to determine whether visas or other documents are required to enter the country. The Canadian Secretariat is not responsible for any travel, visa or accommodation arrangements.

5 Immunizations & Vaccinations No special immunizations or vaccinations are required to visit Canada. For current travel health information visit the Public Health Agency of Canada ( website. Canadian Currency The Canadian currency system uses dollars ($) and cents ( ). Canada has one- and two- dollar coins, often called the "loonie" and the "toonie" respectively, in addition to 1, 5, 10 and 25 coins. Paper money comes in different colours and designs. The most common are $5 bills (blue), $10 bills (purple), $20 bills (green), $50 bills (red) and $100 bills (brown). Sales Taxes & GST The GST, or "goods and services tax," is a 5% federal tax applied to most goods and services provided in Canada. In the province of Prince Edward Island, the Provincial Sales Tax (PST) of 10% is added to almost all purchases and financial transactions. Most hotels and retailers include the PST in their prices; others add it on separately. Tipping Tipping is a common practice in Canada. Tips or service charges are not usually added to restaurant bills in Canada. Some restaurants will also place a mandatory service charge on a bill for large groups. In general, you should reward good service by tipping 15-20% of the total amount. Taxi drivers are usually tipped 15%. Bellhops, doormen, porters and other staff at hotels, airports and railway stations are generally tipped $1-$2 per item carried. Climate & Weather Canada stretches from the Atlantic to the Pacific oceans, sharing the southern latitude of Rome and reaching all the way north to the Arctic. In Charlottetown, May can be either very cool or warm. It is advised that you bring with you a warm spring/fall overcoat. For current climate and weather conditions in Charlottetown, please visit Environment Canada ( or the Weather

6 Network ( Time Zones Charlottetown is in the Atlantic Standard Time Zone. View the interactive map ( to show the six Canadian time zones as well as current times in all zones.

During Daylight Saving Time, Charlottetown is three hours behind Coordinated Universal Time (UTC - 3h) Voltage & Electricity Canadian appliances operate on 110 volts (60Hz). A universal adaptor is required for overseas electrical devices. Main wall sockets (or power outlets) and plugs for 110 volts are two parallel flat blades. If those sockets are different from the ones used in your country you will need a socket converter. Emergency Services Travel Health Insurance Before leaving home, review your health plan to see whether your coverage extends to travel outside your home country. If you re not covered, be sure to obtain travel health insurance before visiting Canada. And remember to carry your insurance ID card and emergency numbers with you when you visit. Most Canadian cities have 911 emergency services. In an emergency, you can reach police, fire or ambulance services by dialing 911 on any telephone. If 911 service is unavailable, dial "0" for the operator and ask for police, fire or ambulance service. There is no charge for emergency calls placed from a public pay phone. Canadian Hospitals & Medical Services Canadian hospitals and medical services provide an excellent standard of care. Most hospitals are publicly managed with costs for services set by provincial and hospital authorities. Hospital emergency rooms are open 24 hours for emergency care. Hospital care for non-residents of Canada is charged at a daily rate or calculated based on medical condition and length of stay. Charges vary across the country, but range from $1, $2,000 a day. Most cities also have walk-in clinics where non-emergency treatment or consultation is available without an appointment. Costs vary by clinic and medical attention required.

7 Check local phone books in the yellow pages section under "Clinics, Medical" for a list of walk-in clinics.
