Travel search engine KAYAK analyzed Canadian search data trends and found some striking similarities between where Canadians want to go soak up the sun, as outlined in a press release

The most likely travel-spots for Canadians were picked out, along with how long travellers will be taking time off this winer season. 

On average, Canadians vacation for about 13 days over the holidays, according to KAYAK. That’s actually three days more than the average American traveller. Not sure if that’s a point of pride or not, honestly. 

When choosing a spot to relax on the beach, Jamaica is the spot in 2017. Specially Montego Bay, which say a 53% increase in searches over last year. Why the sudden surge?

Since Jamaica avoided two destructive hurricanes this year, Canadian travellers view the country as a more viable option. Kingston, Jamaica is also a top-spot for Canadian travellers this year. 

But it’s not just the Caribbean Canadians are looking to for travel spots this holiday season. Kuai and São Paulo are the number two and three destinations, which KAYAK says is proof that Canadians are mainly seeking cities they can escape the cold. 

So what are the top ten travel spots for Canadians this year? You can find them below, and maybe avoid the most popular spots if you’re looking to be a little atypical. Or choose them specifically, knowing you’ll see some fellow Canadians while on vacay.

A startling 46% of seafood samples sold in restaurants and grocery stores in four major Canadian cities were mislabelled, according to a report published Wednesday by the non-profit group Oceana Canada.

Often, low-cost knockoffs were pawned off as fancy fishes; out of a total of 94 samples, all 24 of butterfish, yellowtail and white tuna were mislabelled and over half of the samples labelled snapper was actually tilapia, "a much cheaper" fish.
