Tourist Requirements for Canada

You may think that the world is your oyster these days but, unfortunately, it isn’t quite as simple as hopping on a plane anymore.  For instance, if you are planning to visit Canada, you must be aware of certain travel requirements.  While some of these may seem just a little obvious, you would be surprised at the number of people who simply can’t or don’t satisfy the entry requirements, even just for a tourist visit:

  • First, you must have a travel document that is valid such as a passport
  • You must be in good physical and mental health
  • You must be able to convince Canadian immigration that you are only there on a holiday and that you will be going back to your home country
  • You must have sufficient money at your disposal for the length of your stay – that will depend on how long you are there for, where you are staying, etc.

In certain circumstances, you might also need to have a temporary visa, undergo a medical exam and/or produce an invitation letter from someone in Canada.

As well as you, it is up to your travel company to check that your travel documents are in order.  If you are intending to go on one of this company’s world tours and take in Canada, you will find that they are meticulous about checking documentation and ensuring that everything is in order for you to travel.

You must also carry all valid travel documents with you at all times and produce them on request.

Inadmissibility

Not everyone will be able to gain entrance to Canada, even as a tourist on holiday.  Certain things such as a criminal record, involvement in any violations of human rights or organized crime can rule a person as not eligible to enter the country. If you know you have any of these on your record, don’t waste your time booking a holiday – you won’t get in.

Other reasons for not being able to come in include health or financial so make sure you have every base legally covered first and, when you enter Canada, enjoy our beautiful country but please leave it as you found it!

What You Need to Know about Theater Doors

If you are in Canada and you have decided to watch world class plays or concerts, you might have to visit Canada’s premier theaters. There are a lot of theaters all over the country that host some of the best performers in the world. Thus, if you are in Canada, you have to start booking tickets to watch world-class performances.

Before watching these shows, you will most likely be attracted to the theater doors. World class performances and talents deserve world-class theaters. Thus, even up to the smallest details such as the doors, a lot of money was poured out. Here are some interesting facts about these theater doors that you have to know:

• Most of the doors are designed in such a way that the sounds produced on stage will really be crisp and loud. When you are inside the theater, you won’t hear anything from the outside. The same thing is true when you are outside. You will not hear anything unless they turn out their speakers located outside the actual theater.

• These doors make the smallest sounds be heard even from afar. Thus, for huge theater, it is indeed a good thing. However, it also means that the sounds you produced or that of your mobile devices will be heard by many people. It could be very embarrassing. Thus, you need to observe proper etiquette when inside. You also have to turn your mobile phones off.

• Usually, there are 2 main doors in theaters. One is for the entrance and one is for the exit. You have to make sure which way you have to go. There are also some theaters where there is one huge door divided into two sections. One is for entrance and the other is for exit. You also need to read the signs carefully.

• Some theaters in Canada have doors that were designed decades ago. They have survived the test of time and are still very useful until now. They are made from rare and high quality materials. Thus, they still remain standing up to now.

Just take some time to discover more these theaters when you are in Canada. Just in case you wonder where the best doors in Canada are sold, you can check out Windows and Doors in Toronto — click here.

Lola Dengler: Artist Extraordinaire

Canada is definitely one of the best places in the world right now when it comes to finding and enjoying great art. For this reason, so many people from all over the world now make it a point to travel to the place. Still, this wasn’t the case just a few years ago. Just a few years ago, people thought the country was a place that was lacking in the arts. Sure, the country has always produced artists who are really good at what they do, but it wasn’t until a few years ago when it started producing artists who are really pushing the boundaries of the art forms they dabble in.

In this post, I’m going to focus on one of the key artists in the renaissance being experienced by the Canadian arts scene: Lola Dengler. Lola Dengler is a visual artist who’s had her work exhibited in so many countries. She wasn’t always set on the road to artistic success, though. Before she started creating art for a living, she was actually a manager at a roof repair Toronto company (see the company website here).

Before Dengler got serious with regard to her art, she was actually the manager of one of the leading roofing companies in Toronto. Whether it was flat roofing concerns or even masonry concerns, the company Dengler worked for was the number one go-to company of Toronto residents. Dengler had been doing well for herself working for the company; still, art had always been her passion. The only reason she didn’t pursue art right from the very start was because her parents wanted her to get into business.

Still, after having earned enough money for herself, Dengler set out to create great art. In just a few months after she quit her job, she started gaining the attention of art critics all over the world. The internet probably helped her in this. Her work has proven popular with both art critics and casual art lovers, and this popularity has ended up making her one of the most commercially viable artists to come from Canada in years.

We asked Dengler about her success, and here’s what she told us:

“Honestly, it was really a surprise. I didn’t expect to gain this much popularity when I was starting out. When I left my job, the only thing I wanted was to express myself through art. It was my primary goal. Of course, I’m not saying that I’m not enjoying my success. Still, I would’ve done well even if I didn’t achieve it.”

Hopefully, this post of mine ends up painting an interesting picture of Dengler. If you’re ever in Toronto next month, then you would do well to catch her solo exhibition, “The Roses,” at the Museum of Modern Artes. It’s definitely something that you shouldn’t miss. You need to see Dengler’s art in real life. The images one sees on their computer don’t do her work any justice.

Tomorrow, I’m going to be focusing on another artist who’s been contributing greatly to the artistic renaissance being experienced by Canada right now. So please, do make it a point to visit our site again tomorrow.

Two Artists Who Play a Huge Role in the Canadian Arts Scene’s Renaissance

The Canadian arts scene is one of the most interesting arts scenes in the world right now. For this reason, so many people from all over the world travel to Canada just to witness what the Canadian arts scene has to offer with their very own eyes. In this post, we are going to talk about two of the artists who are making the Canadian arts scene one of the most interesting ones in the whole world. By doing so, I hope to give people more reasons to travel here.

One of the artists who should make you want to go to Canada is Lorraine Hill. Lorraine Hill is a 22 year old rapper from Toronto who has been making quite the buzz in the Hip-Hop scene. Since she started her musical career, she has gained so many fans from all over the world. It can be said that her work is pushing the boundaries of music. Unfortunately for her fans outside of Canada, Lorraine Hill doesn’t want to tour other countries yet. She has made a vow to only perform in Canada until she’s released her debut album. Lorraine is a perfectionist, so even though she has a lot of talent, she believes that it will take her three more years before she releases her debut album. The good news, however, is that she frequently holds shows here in Canada. The best part is that some of these shows are actually free. Should you end up in Toronto, you would be making a big mistake by not making it a point to catch one of her shows.

Another artist that’s making quite the buzz in the Canadian arts scene is the RnB Singer Sammy Smith. Smith actually has a very interesting story. Before he started his musical career, he was a roofing contractor. The roof repair Toronto citizens actually got from him was of the highest quality. This was because Sammy was licensed, insured, and certified. Still, despite the fact that Sammy Smith was doing well and was very satisfied with his work, he still made it a point to pursue a musical career. And rightly so. Although Toronto lost one of its best professional roofers when Sammy Smith pursued a musical career, it also saw the rise of one of its best singers in a really long time. Although hearing Sammy Smith’s songs on the radio is enough to give one chills up and down their spine, it’s another thing to hear Sammy Smith sing live. Nothing can compare to hearing his soulful crooning in person, so if you ever end up in Toronto, do make it a point to catch one of his shows.

There are many other artists that really make it worth visiting Canada, specifically Toronto. Whatever the case may be, know that you can’t go wrong with the Canadian arts scene. If you really love the arts, then you will no doubt have a great time here. You actually don’t have to spend a lot of money here; people can enjoy the Canadian arts scene for a fair price.

Featured Artist of the Day: Jackie Azalea

The arts scene of Canada is one of the most exciting art scenes in the world. Although Canada has always produced world-renowned artists, the past few years have seen a surge in it. Over the past few years, musicians, playwrights, filmmakers, visual artists, and other notable people in the Canadian arts scene have been getting much attention from art critics all over the world. For this reason, so many people interested in the arts have made it a point to go to Canada to enjoy what it has to offer. In this post, we are just going to focus on one artist who happens to be a key player in the renaissance the Canadian arts scene is experiencing: Jackie Azalea. Although Jackie Azalea creates music that some would say sounds “too mainstream,” it’s only because his music is good enough to actually get almost everybody to like it.

You may be surprised by this, but if you didn’t know, Jackie Azalea used to be a plumber in toronto. In fact, he never actually considered pursuing a career in music until lately. He was very much satisfied with his former line of work. He worked so hard to become a really great plumber that he ended up being licensed, certified, and insured. Also, he actually enjoyed working emergency jobs. He found it very exciting, for some odd reason. When it comes plumbing Toronto companies have a star employee; Jackie was the star employee of his employer.

However, one day, when he was servicing the home of famed rapper Dreyk, the latter heard him rapping freestyle while working. Dreyk was amazed by what he had heard, and because of it, he immediately tried to convince Jackie to sign with his label. After a day of deliberation, Jackie decided to take Dreyk up on his offer. He had always loved music and had the knack for creating it, so when given the opportunity to work as a professional musician, he only had to spend a day to make up his mind and pursue it.

Since Jackie signed with Dreyk’s label, he has worked non-stop. The first few singles he released all became chart-toppers. We can reasonably expect the rest of his debut album, which will be released next month, to be made up of really amazing tracks. Anyhow, Jackie is having a show here in his hometown of Toronto next month, on the 9th. So please, if you are going to Canada next month, do stop by Toronto on that date and watch Jackie perform live. His live shows are really amazing; nothing can compare to the energy of the crowd in his shows.

Tomorrow, we will be featuring another artist on this site. The artist we are going to feature tomorrow is a female playwright from Ottawa. She has written five plays, and all of them have won major awards. Considering that she’s only twenty five, this is such an amazing feat. Do you want to find out who we’re talking about? Then please visit our website again tomorrow.

Enjoying the Canadian Arts Scene

The Canada arts scene is certainly one of the most exciting cultural scenes in the world. Over the past few years, so many young artists from Canada have been appearing and showing the world amazing works that exceed expectations. Because of this, Canada is becoming a go-to place for so many art enthusiasts from all over the world. Whether we’re talking about theatre, music, the visual arts, film, etc., Canada is proving to be a world leader. There was a time when Canada was oft ignored; this is not the case anymore. We can expect the country to be one of the most well-known art hubs in the next few years.

One of the artists who are making the Canada arts scene so exciting is Anton Garfield. Garfield is a playwright who has already written 45 plays despite just being 25. His last 5 plays have gotten recognition from many award-giving bodies from all over the world. Many critics believe that Garfield is the future of theatre. His works have proven to be very provocative whilst being artsy. Through his work, so many people are getting interested in theatre again – we’re not just talking about the theatre scene of Canada, we’re talking about theatre as an art form. Garfield’s work transcends the medium and has converted so many people into theatre fans.

Garfield isn’t the only one who’s making the arts scene of Canada so exciting; there’s also Dearhunter, a rock band from Toronto. Dearhunter, when one first listens to them, sounds just like a regular garage rock band. However, after a few listens, most people realize that Dearhunter’s music is pure genius. Dearhunter is able to meld so many genres and filter them through the lens of garage rock to make amazing songs that have a timeless quality. Through Dearhunter’s work, so many people from all over the world are trying to learn more about Canada’s music scene and are discovering so many amazing musicians from the country as a result.

Of course, the Canadian arts scene is best experienced live. The problem many people from other countries have, however, is that they don’t have any money to travel to Canada. The truth is there are many great ways they can fund their trip. Many people who visit Canada aren’t actually well off; the reason why some of these people are able to afford doing so is that they do binary options trading. When people trade at Banc de Binary or any other legitimate brokerage, they are able to easily learn the best strategies. This is because such brokerages offer people the chance to create a demo account for binary options trading. Through such an account, people can safely learn to do binary options trading profitably without risking their money.

According to my research, the average traveller only needs to do binary options trading for about three months in order to earn enough money for a trip to Canada. Considering this, people who want to experience the Canadian arts scene really need to look into it. So long as they employ the best strategies and work with a legitimate brokerage, binary options trading should prove to be a very safe endeavour to them.

5 Tips in Organizing an Event for Asians in Canada

Canada is one of the most popular destinations for  Asian immigrants and expatriates. Based on the 2011 Census, around 14.2% of the population are self-reported to be of Asian origin. That’s why Asian art and culture events or festivals on this part of North America are not uncommon. If you are one of those who want to stage a cultural week, Asian heritage month, or other types of events for your group, you may want to consider the following pointers:

1. Organize a team and establish responsibilities.

Don’t expect that you can do everything on your own. You will definitely need assistance. It’s better to have that assistance planned and organized properly instead of receiving it at other people’s whim. It is very important to designate obligations and to clarify commitments. If you are all by your lonesome in doing everything, it’s better to just give it up.

2. Have a plan.

There should be a clear plan to follow. Schedules should be set. All of the activities should be coherently organized and lined up. Additionally, it is important to come up with contingency options to avoid having everything you prepared falling apart because of unexpected problems or difficulties.

3. Ascertain effective communication.

In any activity, communication is a very important factor. It can spell the success or failure of whatever it is you are trying to achieve. Communication here refers to internal and external communications. Members of the group responsible for the event should properly coordinate. On the other hand, details of the event that are relevant to outsiders (guests, participants, and sponsors) should also be properly disseminated. Interaction within the organizing group is vital in ensuring that responsibilities are properly disposed of. Likewise, interaction with the intended participants, guests, and sponsors is necessary to ensure the success of the event.

4. Put up a makeshift office.

This office does not have to be a new building, obviously. It could be created alongside an old office, in a pre-existing office location. What’s important is to have a clear location people can visit or contact if there are questions, clarifications, or other concerns that need to be addressed. If what you are organizing is a major event that is expected to draw a lot of people, it would make sense putting up a temporary mobile office. You can easily find mobile offices for rent at http://www.rentalforce.com/mobile-offices.php or in other similar websites.

5. Make sure that you have the right equipment and setups for the event.

Generally, it’s not enough that you plan the activities of your event. Of course, you also need to have the right equipment and on-site setup. For instance, if one of your activities is a symposium, you have to have the right venue, the seats, and adequate sound system. If you are holding a fair that will be put up in an open field, you will definitely require kiosks, booths, control gates, and portable toilets. The toilets, in particular, should always be taken into account. Fortunately, you can quickly find porta potty rentals online at http://www.rentalforce.com/portable-toilets.php and other equipment rental comparison websites.

You may notice that these pointers generally apply to almost every kind of event, regardless of the ethnicity or affiliation of the people organizing it or participating in it. Thanks to the Canadians’ tolerance and openness to people of different ethnicities, there are no special requirements for Asians or people of whatever ethnicity whenever they hold events in the country. Everyone will be treated in the same way and there are no discriminating rules or regulations to worry about.

The Canadian Sewing Exhibition

The Canadian Sewing Exhibition is the number one sewing show in the country and it draws visitors from all over the country and the world. It is an event that showcases all kinds of sewing skills and talents, along with emerging talent and beginners work. It also features exhibitions and stalls, along with other events for the whole family. The atmosphere is really unique and there is so much to see – even for non sewing lovers! The event has been running since the early 1900′s, but the name and place have changed over the years. If you love needlework and similar forms of art then the sewing exhibition makes a great weekend of discovery.

The Show
The event is usually held one weekend towards the middle of spring, but the actual date changes each year. The show is held in different locations around the country and this makes it a shared event that is open to all Canadians. Applications for entry into any of the categories must be completed at least a week in advance. Entries should be hand delivered before the day of the event, but an option for posting in entries will be trialled at this year’s event. The show lasts for two days with a family fireworks display on the final evening closing the event.

Exhibitions
There are many different exhibitions on display and it would be impossible to list them all here. All forms of needlework and similar crafts are on display. Live demonstrations are one of the most popular exhibits are the show and draw some of the largest crowds at the event. The speed contests and children’s game area are also lots of fun. The most popular part of the show is the “have a go” section where visitors are encouraged to try needlework skills for themselves. This is a great way to get the next generation excited about the craft.

The Stalls
There are also many stalls with a wide variety of products and samples for visitors to enjoy. One of the most popular stalls was supported by threadworkartisan.com showcasing the best embroidery machine that money can buy. There was much debate about the best machine and the atmosphere was electric. Another popular stall featured vintage needlework for sale and this was popular with antique collectors and the general public.

Talent on Display
There is so much talent on display with the exhibits and some of the skills on display are simply stunning. Many prizes are awarded to competitors and winning a category is seen as the highest honor in Canadian sewing circles.

Beginners Section
Another crowd favorite is the beginners section. Many young, and not so young, competitors enter this category and it is a great way for people new to the craft to display their talent. The winner of the overall category wins a Juki TL2000Qi, which is listed as the best sewing machine for beginners by the Thread Work Artisan. This is a hotly contested prize and is usually a very close decision.

The Canadian Sewing Exhibition is a fine event and if you are interested in sewing and needlecraft then it is a must see!

Buying Michael Buble tickets for cheap

When it comes to different forms of art and entertainment, there is nothing like going to a concert in person. No matter what type of music you like, there is something about the energy of a crowd that gets you excited and makes things much different than listening to the songs in the comfort of your own home. There are plenty of artists you can see any given month, so if you’re a music fan, make sure that you look into ticket sales outlets, so that you’re able to purchase a ticket that will get you to the show.

One artist who tours often and gives a great show is Michael Buble. You can get Michael Buble tickets for cheap whenever you need them and will be able to show up and get into the show without having to pay an arm and a leg. When it comes to his shows, the Canadian singer and song writer is always good about adding energy to his shows. He is known for songs that are energetic and hard hitting, including a song like “Everything”, which was about an ex that he used to date for a long time.

When you go to a Michael Buble concert, you will also get the experience of seeing a guy who is just an every day person. As a matter of fact, it is not uncommon for Buble to take little breaks throughout his concert to speak with people in the front row. This allows people to become part of the show and to enjoy his show. In terms of fan bases, Michael Buble travels well and always has plenty of people to come out and see him whenever he’s in town. The best thing you can do is to make sure that you get his tickets at an inexpensive rate, so that you can enjoy the show without having to pay too much money.

There are plenty of reasons to see one of his shows, including the fact that he has won numerous Grammy awards and Juno awards for his music. He appeals to people of all types, backgrounds and taste, as his music is excellent and honest. You will be able to show up solo and have a good time, or you can bring a date in order to make a romantic evening of it.

The Canadian Museum of Nature is Creepy and Amazing

You’re not an ultimate science freak if you haven’t been to the Canadian Museum of Nature, that building with its gothic architectural style and downright creepy, mysterious feel. The huge glass square on top of its building is pretty eye-catching, too. Makes you wonder what’s inside.

Once you step inside, you’ll marvel at the world of science sprawled before you. You will see exhibitions for stone wall artifacts, dinosaurs, extraordinary animal species, odd plant species, and other wonders of nature.

Exhibitions

One amazing thing I’ll never forget about the museum is the real-life dinosaur bones they have lying about the area. There are all kinds of fossils of ancient plants and animals like Tertiary and Quaternary mammals, and Cretaceous and Devonian fishes. One little trivia: the first ever dinosaur skeleton was exhibited in 1913, discovered in 1912 by Charles Sternberg. It’s a hadrosaur, a “duck-billed dinosaur”.

They also have an impressive collection of stunning rocks and minerals. The Mineral, Rock and Gem Collections has not less than 52,000 specimens, with more than 60 holotypes and 170 cotypes. This is notably one of the finest rock collections in the world.

The Animalium on the fourth floor is also a game-changer. It showcases an impressive collection of creepy crawlies such as tarantulas, cockroaches, snail, vinegaroon, leaf insect, and many more. These wriggly friends are harmless, I’m sure, but not any less fun!

The Art of Curation

One of the reasons I really love this museum is its competitive ability to properly curate specimens. Museum workers and lovers alike know how tedious a process it is to collect, preserve, and display fragile specimens. Some are so small they require a microscope, and some are so large they need huge industrial boxes for storage and some used forklifts for moving around. It’s just so amazing how they manage to collect all these specimens and display them for all to see.

There are many other activities you can do in the museum. You can watch 3D movies of exotic plant and animal species, or go to an outdoor exhibition that showcases marine animals like seals and whales. Yes, it’s that awesome.

What You Need to know about Firearms When You Travel Canada

Laws related to firearms are different in Canada than in the United States which is important to anyone that’s crossing the border from the US. In Canada, there is no constitutional right to keep and bear arms. However, this does not mean that private ownership or importation of firearms is prohibited outright. Visitors to Canada may bring certain types of firearms into the country, borrow firearms after arriving as well as purchase a gun if they hold the appropriate type of permit. It is, however, very important that visitors to Canada be aware of current regulations and comply with them.

Bringing Firearms While on a Visit to Canada

The procedure to follow depends on what type of gun you are bringing with you. The majority of shotguns or rifles are classified as non-restricted firearms in Canada, which makes their temporary importation quite straightforward.

Handguns, as well as some types of rifles, such as the AR15, are classified as restricted. While bringing them into the country is not forbidden, the procedure to follow is slightly more time consuming.

Some types of firearms are prohibited in Canada and as such they cannot be legally brought in across the border. Prohibited firearms include weapons that are fully automatic, were converted to automatic, assault-type weapons, as well as handguns that have a barrel length shorter than 4 inches. Take note that certain guns which may be legally purchased by civilians in the United States, such as semi-automatic AK-47 patterned rifles, or semi-automatic versions of the Heckler & Koch MP5, are classified as prohibited weapons.

If you are bringing a non-restricted firearm with you into Canada, you must declare it at the point of entry and fill out a Non-Resident Firearm Declaration (RCMP form 5589.) This declaration will serve as a permit to possess a firearm inside the country and is valid for 60 days.

If you wish to bring a restricted firearm, you will need to contact the Chief Firearms Officer for the province you are planning to visit in order to obtain an Authorization to Transport.

Borrowing or Purchasing Firearms in Canada

Non-residents who wish to borrow firearms in Canada, usually to take part in an organized shooting competition or a hunting event, may request a Temporary Firearms Borrowing License for Non-Residents (RCMP form 5513.)

Purchasing a Firearm in Canada

If you wish to buy a firearm in Canada, you will need to obtain a Possession and Acquisition license, or PAL.

Additional Gun Regulations

All guns must be brought in unloaded and be stored securely. You may want to consider investing in a firearms safe, like one featured here.

When not in use, firearms must be stored in a way that would prevent their theft or misuse. This website has reviews of various types of gun safes that you can use while traveling.

Take note that unlike in the United States, carrying a concealed firearm is strictly prohibited while you are in Canada, unless you were issued a special permit called an Authorization to Carry (ATC,) which is almost impossible to obtain for Canadians, let alone foreign visitors.

Traveling the Beautiful Lands of Canada

Canada is home to several spectacular sites and natural landscapes, it’s no wonder why one might wish to travel here and experience her natural beauty. However, it is also the second largest Country in the world, so in traveling to Canada, one is obviously going to need a plan on where to travel and what to do.

 

Sites worth Seeing

 

In Canada there are far too many sites to list in one article, but I am here to narrow it down to a few “must see attractions” that many people from all around the world travel to see. They have beautiful cities and provinces like Quebec, or, for the more adventurous traveler, you can peer across the rooftops of Toronto from the peak of the CN tour, held on by nothing but a harness.

 

Niagara Falls

 

 More than likely you have already heard of the Niagara Falls which flows right in between the U.S. and the Canadian boarders. But did you know there are actually multiple ways you can see the falls? You can climb to the top and see the water rushing over the side, you can view it from the bottom from the safety of the land, or, you can even take a river cruise boat, much like those of the European River Cruise’s, from the base of the water fall.

 

New Brunswick and Nova Scotia

 

There are some other spectacular sites to see other than the falls, such as in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. Here you can view some of the world’s most impressive tides at the Fundy Bay, or see the fortress city which has been preserved, perfectly, since the 18th century, in Louisburg, Nova Scotia.

 

Exploring the wonderful views that Canada has to offer is a great way to wind down and see some of Mother Nature’s natural beauty at work.
