Important New Requirements for Travellers

As of January 23, 2007, travellers to and from Canada are required to have a passport to enter Canada or re-enter the United States. If you need a U.S. passport, apply now as processing times have increased due to high volume. For more information, check out US Department of State at www.state.gov.

Canadian Currency

The hotel, cabs and shops require payment in Canadian currency. Credit cards may be used, and Canadian dollars may be obtained from cash machines. Currency may also be converted to Canadian dollars at the airport.

Vancouver Weather in October
