      Hiking Suggestions in Quebec Area for mid-May

      Quebec Jan 12, 2015 at 8:54 AM

      Hi everyone,
      I am planning to go to Quebec City to see a concert in mid-May and would like to get in some hiking around the city. In the autumn of 2013, I hiked L'Acropole des Draveurs (breathtaking!) in Haute-Gorge and also Jacques-Cartier National Park to the north of the city.

      I was wondering if there are other suggestions as well to check out (particularly if it's got a splendid or scenic views like L'Acropole).

      Thanks, Joe

    • Visitor attractions

      Vancouver Dec 30, 2014 at 2:20 AM

      Would appreciate some advice as to the pros and cons of the following attractions - we have a1/2 days in Vancouver and the following list might well have very similar exhibits - equally some of these might well be orientated to children rather than adults

      Visit Kilby Historic site – quirky opening times - seems a little small
      Klahowya village in Stanley Park - presume that this is more of a craft village
      Britannia Village National Historic Site
      Gastown historic end of Vancouver
      London Heritage Farm Richmond -
      Burnaby Village Museum – MUST GO ON MONDAY AS MARKET = could this be a better option than Kilby Historic site

      Plan to visit June/July - are there any aboriginal displays

      Hoping someone can help - wishing everyone a Happy New Year albeit a little early. Thanx

    • Short 3 night stay - Looking to do/see as much as possible!

      Niagara Falls Jan 26, 2015 at 5:44 PM

      We are looking to visit Niagara Falls for a short 4day/3 night weekend. We would be able to visit during either early March or early April. We would be driving from northeast Ohio. Does anyone have any recommendations on inexpensive centrally located hotels. We would like to see as much as possible in the short period of time and hopefully do some non touristy things as well. We are in our early 20's, not so much into the bar scene but are seeking more of the Falls and scenic areas. Any input would be great, Thank you!

      Any wineries that also do food and accommodation?

      Montreal Jan 25, 2015 at 2:49 PM

      We'll be staying in Montreal for 3 weeks in the summer and would like to visit a nice vineyard. It seems like most of them will serve you a few little taster glasses and try to sell you a few bottles of wine. Are there any that have more of a restaurant/hotel set up where you could actually stay the night?

      Anywhere within say a 2 or 3 hour driving distance from Montreal would be suitable to us.

      Road trip around BC

      Canada Jan 3, 2015 at 9:55 PM

      Hi
      My wife and I are travelling with our daughter, son in law and grand daughter in September/October this year. We are all meeting up in Banff on Sat 3rd October.

      We are hiring a van and travelling to each of the following for 2 nights each.
      Banff, Lake Louise, Jasper, Sun Peaks (or Kamloops), Whistler, Victoria and Vancouver.
      We are string to look at accommodation and would like to share log cabin type accommodation, self contained if possible.

      We already have Banff, Lake Louise, Victoria and Vancouver booked (Fairmont hotels), although if anyone has any ideas of shared accommodation in Victoria or Vancouver that would also be helpful. Does anyone have any ideas of places we could book at Jasper, Sun Peaks/Kamloops and Whistler.

      Thanks for your help.

    • Itinerary/things to do

      Vancouver Island Dec 30, 2014 at 3:14 AM

      As will be seen from previous question we plan to visit end of June

      Proposed itinerary - really need some helpful practical suggestions as to what to see/ferry routes

      Depart Horseshoe Bay crossing to Nanaimo Bay - do we need to book this crossing as we will have a car??

      Drive to Victoria - suggestions as to what to see greatly appreciated

      Day 2 Circular tour from Victoria - Lake Cowichan - Port Renfrew - Sooke - Victoria - OK long day - Google calculates 4hr 29 264 KM - not so sure going on the coast via Sooke would have preferred to have cut back in through national park - or what looks like national park on map but showing no roads - may be the costal route is picturesque

      Is it worth visiting Campbell River

      Costing of inside passage from Port Hardy-Port Rupert seems horribly expensive and we simply can't afford it . Also we do not do small boats only major drive on ferries - so trips to islands would not be possible

      Depart via Toll Bridge from Victoria to Port Angeles - any idea of fees as website seems ambiguous

      Many thanks

    • Passports + Visa

      Canada Jan 19, 2015 at 4:40 AM

      Hey, my partner and I are leaving Australia in July, traveling to Europe and South America before heading to Canada.

      We would like to apply for the working holiday visa (IEC) but applications are currently closed.

      We need to apply before we leave Australia, as we need to be in Australia while going through the application process.

      I am worried because we will not be entering Canada until March 2016.

      If the applications open back up (which it should do, some time during 2015) - would we be able to apply during this year, but for a time period beginning from March 2016? Or does the time limit begin from the moment you get the application approved and not be able to choose its starting point?

      Would we have to send our passports away?
      Would we need to get biometric scanning done somewhere?

      I have read that I need to present a "proof of available funds" on arrival and that this must be a statement from my bank account which has been issued no more than one week before my departure for Canada - how am I supposed to get this bank statement if I have already been traveling around outside of Australia for a year?? I really don't want to have to fly back to Australia to get this piece of paper, but I will not have anywhere for it to be posted to me either.

      Do I need to pay for a return trip leaving Canada in order for my application to be successful, or can I just have proof of enough funds to show that I am capable of buying a ticket at a later date?

      Sorry this post is all over the place, the International Experience Canada page on the CIC website has been of no use whatsoever.

    • 1926 - 27

      by Rwthless Online Now Mar 9, 2012 at 4:57 AM

      My father Thomas 'Peter' Howard, as a young man spent a year by the Qu'appelle river growing grain on the quarter section held by his uncle Richard John Everall, so that 'Jack' could return home to Shropshire to visit his family. He sowed, cultivated and harvested the grain which he took to numbered bins by the railway line where it was picked up and taken East, and he received a cheque in due course. He was quite alone for this time, but was welcome in a neighbouring home presided over by 'Granny" Wilson who I believe was Scots. She encouraged him to do a world tour, and gave the name of relatives by marriage, Idiens in New South Wales in Australia. He did do so and kept a diary, but sadly, we have had to rely on verbal memories for his Canadian time. He passed through on his homeward journey, but broke his journey further west at Swift Current where he worked during the winter of 1929/30 for a man called Lundqist at a line camp I think. He said the 'tumbleweeds' were mustard plants.

      Mrs Everall, born Mary Ann Howard in Bishops Castle in 1863, did not linger long in the area, but if anyone has news of her, I'd be glad to know of it.

      Does any of this tally with any records at the museum or memories of an oldest inhabitant? He said that the young tended to pick up their sticks and move to more favourable places, but I see that this area like many others has gained residents in the intervening period. Someone may have a letter or a memory of the period. Anything about the Wilsons or the Everalls would be very interesting.
