Tipping: The tradition of tipping in Montreal restaurants stems from the fact that employees in the service sector, such as waiters, often rely on tips to supplement their income. In Canada, it’s generally appreciated to leave a tip of 15% to 20%, depending on the quality of service. Even if you’re not from the area, following this local custom is a must and helps support workers in the service sector.

Taxes in Quebec: In Quebec, taxes include the 5% federal GST (Goods and Services Tax) and the 9.975% provincial QST (Quebec Sales Tax). The combined total is 14.975%. These taxes are added to the price displayed at the time of purchase, except for certain exemptions. It is advisable to check current rates and tax rules.
