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

Saint John is small and very walkable. You will need to find transport to get out to the Reversing Falls.
