Money and Tipping

Canada's currency is the Canadian Dollar (CAD). Coins are used for denomination $2 and under and Canada is slowly phasing in 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 the same.

Local Transportation

A small hop on/hop off bus can take you around the area for $15 (Jan 2017). Additional shuttles may take you to the larger town of Chicoutimi. http://tourisme.saguenay.ca/en/circuits-and-guided-tours/tourist-bus

Shopping & Restaurants

Some shops and restaurants in La Baie can be found on Rue Bagot including a Tim Horton's (Canada's favourite coffee and donut chain). Further west is Les Galeries de La Baie shopping centre with a Maxi supermarket.

Be sure to try some poutine. There is usually a small market set up in front of the church a couple blocks south of the pier with a poutine wagon. Cantine Boivin located a block west of the cruise terminal at 1113 Rue Victoria also serves poutine.

Internet

Tim Hortons and other restaurants and cafes may have free wifi for customers.
