Can I use one-way flights for US-Canada-US travel?

I want to book a flight from the US to Canada on Air Canada, and the return trip on United, for cost reasons. I plan to buy the return ticket before travel, so I will have the return ticket available to show to Customs upon entering Canada. Is this generally accepted by Canadian Customs? Flights in and out of Canada are through Toronto YYZ. I'm a US citizen. I tried to search previous AskMe's but the tool wasn't working for me. Thanks for your help.

What are the "destination forms" that United Airlines wants for Canada?

I'm traveling from CA to BC in a couple of weeks on United Airlines. United's online system wants me to upload a scan of my passport. If possible, I'd like to avoid that because I'm sure their system will suffer a data breach at some point. But when I try to get past the prompts to upload my passport, it tells me "You can't get fully Travel Ready before you scan your passport". So … do I have a choice? [more inside]

October in British Columbia -

I'm going on a work trip to Victoria, BC in October. I want to take a ~week's holiday while I'm there, preferably on a group trip of some kind. However, it seems to be too late in the year for the summer activities and too early for the winter ones. I'd like to see some wildlife, scenary, and history. Help me find what I'm after!

Can we see the aurora from the Vancouver area in November?

Montreal YUL to Bonaventure

I am interested in getting from YUL to Bonaventure or Gare Centrale via transit. It looks like there is a bus that runs to another Metro station, which can then be taken to Bonventure. That looks like a very long ride, possibly two hours or so. Are there other options to get to downtown, perhaps via commuter rail? [more inside]

Vancouver Island in December

What’s Vancouver Island like in December? Is it worth visiting? We were thinking about visiting the Wickaninnish Inn in Tofino on Vancouver Island in later December. Storm watching and just kind of snuggling in for a few days sounds like a relaxing and chill way to end the year, but getting there sounds like a lot, and maybe too much of the opposite of the relaxing disconnect we were hoping for.

One night in Yellowknife

Later this month I am flying from Vancouver to Yellowknife to help my brother move back to Victoria, BC. We will be spending one night in Yellowknife before the drive. Can anyone recommend an interesting and affordable place to stay? I have looked at the "sleep" section on Wikitravel, but it doesn't provide any information to distinguish one option from another.

Trip to Quebec end of June?

We have a long planned shot trip via car to Quebec (City) for the Jazz festival the last few days of June and into July. It’s hard to get good information on the expected situation there in three weeks–naturally enough. Should we just cancel and plan to go some other time?

I need a break. Difficulty Level: 6 year old and Dog Highway-Phobic

I'm in Toronto. I really want to go away this weekend. I have a 6 year old and a dog. Where can we go? Oh, and I'm scared of driving on highways if we're anywhere near Toronto (like two lanes of divided highway with no traffic, fine...but traffic or way, no how). My son's passport is expired. We do not have camping equipment here (we own some, but not a tent and it's stored at my friend's house and she's out of town). Is there somewhere my kid, my dog, and I could go? I can drive for maybe 2 hours. [more inside]

Your Best Vancouver Travel Recommendations

I am planning a family vacation to Vancouver and I'm hoping to get some advice and recommendations. We are a family of 2 adults and 2 young adults from Pittsburgh and we are open to other options in case Vancouver doesn't fit the bill. We want to go somewhere new, but not too far away, and we like a mix of city and nature. We will be flying from Pittsburgh in August and we are looking for recommendations on alternate cities that might have less expensive airfare. [more inside]
