Following the incident, Transport Canada and the Canadian Air Transport Security Authority (CATSA) accelerated its actions to protect air travellers. In addition to introducing carry-on bag restrictions, Transport Canada quickly took action to issue security notices, invest in full body scanners and announce our intention to implement a screening method known as behaviour pattern recognition.
The new one carry-on bag rule takes effect on January 20, 2010 in all Canadian airports. Details are provided by your local travel agent or airport or Transport Canada's website.
When packing for an airline flight, it’s important to keep a few things in mind — how much you pack as well as what you pack. Below is only a guideline for "general" regulations for some airlines. We recommend you please contact the airline you are travelling directly for their up to date baggage allowances.
Many airlines are strictly enforcing maximum carry-on and checked baggage allowances. Please check with your airline directly if you are unsure of the size and weight of baggage you are permitted to check or carry on.
Most airlines allow at least one (1) piece of standard carry-on baggage and one (1) personal item. Carry-on baggage should not exceed 21 cm x 40 cm x 54 cm (8" x 16" x 21") and the maximum weight should not exceed 10 kg (22 lbs). Carry-on items may include: bags and suitcases, briefcases, laptop computer bags, diaper bags, camera cases and similar items. Most check-in counters have a sizing unit where you can verify that your baggage is within size requirements
Most airlines now charge for your first piece of checked luggage when travelling within North America. Charter and International flight most times permit one piece of checked baggage per fee-paying customer. Allowable pieces of checked baggage must not exceed 23 kg (50 lbs) in weight or 158 cm (62") in overall dimensions (height + width + depth). Many airlines have recently reduced their baggage allowance to as low as 23 kg (per piece) and one piece. Please ensure you check with your airline for specific weight requirements and restrictions prior to departure as every airline does have different rates and luggage restrictions.
Travel insurance was designed to make travel a worry-free experience. Even if you're a well-prepared traveler, emergencies happen. You might have an accident the night before you're scheduled to leave and need to cancel your trip. You might need to come home early because of a family emergency. You might need medical assistance when you're away. You never know. Travel insurance can help you protect the financial investment you make in a trip, and ensure professional assistance is available if you need it.
Unfortunately there is no cut and dry answer to this question. To make matters worse, visa requirements can change for countries every year or so, so make sure your source of information is reliable.Different countries of origin may have different requirements, so you cannot always take another traveler's word for it. What we recommend is that you check out the link below for more information on obtaining your visa, or call the consulate of the country you are travelling to for more information.

If you are travelling abroad, the vaccinations you need will depend on which country you are travelling to.
