7. CASUAL – we are casual people! wear everything and anything that is comfortable! no need for heels and fancy clothes!

8. TIPPING – If you have ever eaten at a restaurant in Canada, then there is a chance that you will be tipping your server!.  Tipping is NOT an expected service in Canada but it all depends on the service provided.  Waitresses/waiters, Bartenders, Bellhops, and more all work for tips. So depending on the service is how well you tip!
