Are you thinking about a move to Canada?
Are you looking for a new start in Canada?
Here’s a bit of Canadian culture to help you.
GOOD MANNERS – quiet from 10:00 pm – 8:30 am
Many Canadians go to bed around 10:00 or 11:00 p.m.
As a general rule, people should not be disturbed in their homes by noise from neighbours, or phone calls, between 9:30 p.m. and approx 8:45 a.m. on weekdays.
With adult students these times are a little later (e.g., 10:30 pm – 9:30 a.m.), depending on their academic schedule.
If you share a dormitory room with someone, you should try not to disturb them with light or noise during these hours.
If you live in Canada, you should try not to disturb your neighbours during these times (e.g., mowing your lawn, playing loud music, entertaining guests outside).
See the STORY The Sleepover example: “He has to work the next day so we’ll have to be quiet after 10:00 pm.”
