I am a US Citizen traveling to Canada for the very first time. My company has a branch at Ottawa & I am going there to attend meetings & training. I have heard that sometimes US citizens are denied admission to Canada so want to get a general idea of what to expect at arrival & dealing with customs. I will be flying with Air Canada from JFK-YOW. I will surely take my US passport & printout of the hotel reservation along with return ticket. I will be there for 3 nights & 4 days only. Any feedback regarding what the Canadian Immigrations ask at the Ottawa airport will be greatly appreciated.
Also, is there is limit on cash allowance? I am thinking of carrying around $2000 to be on the safe side & will also be using my credit cards.
Final question. I use MetroPCS carrier in the USA with an unlocked Sony Xperia M. Wondering if my my own network will work or I will have to get a Canada sim card. Many thanks in advance.
