Ever buy tickets for a hot show from a secondary ticket seller only to later realize (too late!) that the listed price is in US dollars? Given the exchange rate, that can be a very nasty surprise. That $179 ticket actually turned out to cost $237.
The good news is that there is now pending legislation (in Ontario, anyway) that will require all secondary sellers to list ticket prices in Canadian dollars. I quote:
Ticket Sales Act, 2017
The Schedule amends the Ticket Sales Act, 2017 to require ticket businesses to ensure that the ticket purchaser is offered a ticket, and charged, in Canadian currency.
Nice. But how do you enforce this? That’s still to be determined.
Meanwhile, though, be very careful with what sellers turn up high atop Google searches. Stick with resellers that have a presence in Canada (for example, TicketsNow, StubHub, and few others.)
