    Sales tax is different in each province - (Ontario is 8%, Alberta has none). GST (Goods and Services Tax) is 7% and is charged in every province in Canada, so here in Ontario we pay 14% total for what we buy.

    Taxes are NOT included in the sales price, as some goods (like food) don’t have tax; and some only have GST.

    There is a rebate that is given on the taxes for tourists, but I also heard that this was being phased out - it’s best to check before you leave the country to see if it’s still in place and if you need forms to fill out, etc. You should ask at Revenue Canada.
