You all are too funny! I just got back from a few days (too few, alas) in Southern BC and Alberta. Since there was only myself and one son, we took my little 1948 canned ham instead of the AS . . . we were definitely the least progressive/modern by far and away of anyone in all of the campgrounds we stayed in! They all had sites with full hookups as well as sites for those of us with less well equipped campers and tents.

So don't mind these folks pulling your leg, cegardner, the electricity is the same on both sides of the border. And while the weather can be chilly in Canada the warmth and kindness of her citizens more than makes up for drops in temp, I've always found.

The NEC (National Electric Code) is THE standard that is supposed to be followed in ALL of North America. I've heard there are places in Mexico that haven't got the word yet. You should be fine anywhere in Canada.

In Canada we dont recognise the NEC - we do follow the CEC (Canadian electrical code) VERY similar but some differences in areas that would be unseen by the naked eye (wire ampacities, code allowances, wiring techniques...).

National in the case of NEC is only US American, - Mexico electricity - that is another story all together.

In Canada last week was the first time I have read higher than normal voltage, 129 volts, on my fancy expensive surge protector/voltage regulator gadget. However, it didn't trip or anything, and I trust my gadget explicitly, so it must be okay. Right now, I'm poking along on only 119 volts in Spokane. Way to give a guy an inferiority complex, Canadians.
