New data gathered on Canadian tipping habits shows Calgarians proved the most miserly of the bunch, tipping just 59.4 per cent of the time with an average tip of 13.3 per cent.


Mobile payments company Square analyzed the transactions made on their system in five Canadian cities — Vancouver, Toronto, Calgary, Montreal and Ottawa — averaging out both the frequency of tips made and their value. Calgary ranked the lowest. (Elaine Thompson/Associated Press)

The information comes from transactions made using Square's mobile payment technology, and covered retail services that give a tip option to customers, including restaurants, taxis, spas, hairdressers and bars.

It also included those offering personal services such as private fitness instruction and massage services.
