Customs

The ethnic diversity of Canada means that rules of social propriety are quite complex. There are certain general expectations. Greeting, except in formal settings, does not require touching in the form of embraces or handshakes. As a community, Canadians are in general soft spoken, patient, and almost apologetic in their public behavior. They are also in general tolerant of the complex network of cultural differences in public behavior, more so in cities where such diversity is more commonplace.

Shopping

You'll enjoy convenient shopping hours across Canada with many stores open from 9am or 10am to 6pm seven days a week. City stores and suburban shopping centers are also open until 9pm on several weeknights, particularly on Thursday and Friday. Sunday shopping is permitted in all provinces and territories across Canada. Some store owners may choose not to open on Sunday so find out before you set out on your shopping excursion. 

Tipping

Tipping is practiced in Canada in a similar manner to the United States. It is a common practice in restaurants to have servers share their tips with other restaurant employees, a process called "tipping out". Workers who receive tips are legally required to report the income to the Canada Revenue Agency and pay income tax on it.
