Canada

Canada is a favourite destination for the YOURLifeChoices website team.
We have visited many times in recent years and are in constant contact with the team at the Canadian Tourism Commission, as well as provincial and major city tourism bodies to ensure our enewsletter subscribers and website visitors receive the latest and greatest information and seniors travel deals on offer. So read on to learn more about making your trip to Canada your best ever.

Canada has 10 provinces and three territories and is the second largest country in the world. For this reason it is often best to concentrate on one province or region, unless of course you have a LOT of time and wish to tackle the whole continent by travelling west to east on Via Rail… but more about that later.

Getting around

Bus
Acadian Bus Lines and Coach Canada both offer discounts to those over 60 with proof of age.
