I doubt also, but just want to know how that all works, if you don't mind me asking.
Other then clearing customs at no point would you see any difference based on the fact you or your car are from the US.

There won't be any difference in costs for a non-local to attend.

Definitely will be going to the ribfest and the pow wow events and now trying to think about what to do afterwards. So, what can you tell me about the Malls and which one is worth going to visit? And also, if you don't mind, can you give suggestions about which parks is nice to go to? If you want, you can give me a link about them or something. Thanks...

The major mall in Belleville is Quinte Mall, which is located at the 401 interchange with Highway 62. I don't think it is anything too, too special to be honest. It's a mid-70's mall with a Sears, Toys r' Us and incidentally the only Sam the Record Man left (that's a famous record store up here).

Btw, do you know the tax rate of things over there? Like, for food tax, misc-tax, state tax, etc...I may buy groceries, or maybe eat at chain restaurants everyday during my vacation there (which will get too expensive quickly) and might need to bring more money if needed.

In Ontario the sales tax is called the HST and it's 13% and applies to most everything you'll buy while visiting

Wow, 13%... I thought here in u.s was bad with 7.5%. (Virginia beach tax) Now, I see why canadians want to move to the u.s.

Hi there,

They all hover around the low to mid teens, excepting Alberta and the territories, which is lower due to them having a zero provincial/territorial tax rate. So the tax you pay on things is provincial + a federal VAT, it's a combined tax.

You don't pay tax on groceries, but you will pay the full 13% if you decide to eat at a restaurant and it totals over $4

Better get used to it, America is next!
