Canada Travel Safety Checklist

Normal Precautions

Canada is a relatively safe destination, with low crime rate, well-maintained roads, a high standard of health care and a stable government.

Be a Savvy Traveler
  • Stay aware of your surroundings, especially at night or in the dark.
  • Keep your belongings near you, especially on public transport, at stations and terminals, at outdoor cafes and in any crowded area.
  • Avoid wearing expensive jewelry or carrying large amounts of cash.
  • Be on alert if a stranger strikes up an unprompted conversation or otherwise tries to distract you.
  • Try not to use ATMs at night.
  • Take only registered taxis and other transportation. It’s a good idea to take a photo of the cab number in case there’s an issue or if you leave something in the cab.
