Dining etiquette for tipping Business gifts Gifts are not routinely given.
If you do give a gift when you arrive or when you are leaving, make it a modest one.
A lavish gift, though accepted, would be frowned upon Punctuality
and Courtesy Being on time is really important.
Canadians do not do much small talk. Interrupting is very rude.
Canadians place great importance in courtesy. Displays of Emotion Unlike in Turkey, Canadians do not display emotions in business.
Emotions are contained and meetings rarely if ever get confrontational. Being Prepared. In Canada it is important to being evidence to support your position.
Hunches and gut feelings are not enough unless supported with facts and figures. Gifts are given to celebrate finalizing a negotiation, a contract, or a project. Gifts for the office, a nice bottle of wine or liquor would be appropriate. If you are invited to a barbecue or a picnic .Just ask when invited if you should bring something. Bringing a six-pack Molson’s which is a canadian beer or a bottle of wine would be appropriate. Taking a business associate to a nice meal or an evening sporting event, play, or symphony is always a nice gesture.
Invitations to private homes are rare. Occasionally, in the western provinces, you may be invited to someone's home. If you are invited, you may take candy, flowers, or liquor to the host or hostess A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.
