Obtaining visitor tax refund from Canada

Jump to last reply

In reparing for my trip to Nova Scotia this month, I came across Revenue Canada's form GST176, Application for Visitor Tax Refund,
for international visitors to request refund of taxes they paid on lodging and goods purchased while in Canada.

The form does not mention the method of refund, so I am guessing that it would be a check in Canadian dollars--am I correct?

If that is the case, I guess I would prefer to use the Global Refund tax-back service (it has worked ok for me in Europe), as an unfavoravble exchange rate on my small refund (guessing $60-100 at most) would cost me less than my bank's fee for depositing a check in foreign currency.

Can anyone tell me of recent experience with a Canadian GST refund? thanks
