Canada and the United States have a lot of differences as you’ve begun to see from our conversion calculators. One of the biggest differences is their forms of measurement. Until 1971 Canada and the US used the same imperial system until Canada adopted the metric system as their official form of measurement. You might be wondering why you would need this conversion, but it can help when doing basic tasks such as filling up your gas tank in your vehicle or cooking. For example, you will use gallons in the US compared to liters in Canada these conversions can only make you more prepared and your tour around the lake that much easier.
