Money and Tipping

Canada's currency is the Canadian Dollar (CAD). Coins are used for denomination $2 and under and Canada has switched to polymer plastic notes similar to the notes used in Australia. The penny was eliminated in 2013. US dollars are widely accepted though you may get a poor exchange rate and your change back in Canadian money. When dining in restaurants, tips between 15-20% are expected since restaurant workers typically make minimum wage. Taxi drivers should be tipped 10-20%.

Any bank will exchange USD to CAD though the rates may not be best and you may also incur a service charge.

Purchases and services will incur a 5% federal sales tax (GST) plus an additional 10% provincial sales tax (PST). Tripling the GST charged on your restaurant bill is an easy way to figure out a 15% tip.
