    Canadians are very friendly, respectful and polite. Awesome people, albeit very conservative when it comes to spending or tipping.

    Due to alcohol being much cheaper in the states then in Canada, there's a joke in the RV parks here in Yuma (where about 40 per cent of the snowbirds are Canadians) that goes:
    Question: How can you tell who is Canadian?
    Answer: They're the ones who are drunk all the time.

    They also tend to brag frequently about their healthcare, especially when drinking. Also, when I lived in Las Vegas, it was no secret among people in the hospitality industry that Canadians are notoriously terrible tippers.

    Based on my experience, I would define a Canadian as cheap-bragging-drunks.
    Otherwise, they're okay.

    To be fair to our Canadian friends, they tip less for a reason: In Canada, the minimum wages are higher and there is most often no "lower rate" for people working in tip-based industries. Tip levels are lower in part to reflect the higher wages.

    Canadians' also have less disposable income with which to tip.

    Doesn't let them off the hook. If they got the money to vacation in Las Vegas or lay up in Yuma in an expensive RV for 3-4 months, then when in Rome do as the Romans do when it comes to tipping.
