CANADA TRAVEL GUIDE
Why visit Canada?
Occupying a unique location at the northern-most reaches of the North American Continent, Canada boasts a remarkable diversity of landscapes and habitats which are seldom found within a single country.
A dramatic headland cliff overlooks the rugged coast from the end of the Skyline trail. You can watch for whales in the Gulf of St. Lawrence from the viewing decks.
Dating from 1688, Notre-Dame-des-Victoires is the oldest stone church in North America. It locates in Place Royale, a small cobblestoned square in Quebec City, which is widely considered to be the birthplace of the French colony and the French-American community.
Canada’s modern and bustling cities are rich in cultural activities offering an insight to the country’s early days. Most have a well-preserved historic area and many world-class museums, galleries and historic attractions.

Canada Visitor’s Visa
If you are not fortunate enough to be a citizen of Canada you will need to apply for a Visitor’s Visa in order to be admitted. Your country of origin will be the deciding factor when it comes to ease of entry.
If you are crossing the border from North America you are in luck – all you need to bring is a valid passport.
Residents from the following countries do not require a Visitor’s Visa but do need to complete an Electronic Travel Authorization (ETA) before leaving home. This is a relatively simple process which you can complete on-line.
