Canada has introduced new rules requiring airlines to advertise the total ticket price -- including all taxes, charges and fees.

Print advertising, billboards and online ads will also be required to state the cost of the taxes and fees included in the actual airfare.

The new rules introduced by Canada's federal government will give passengers the opportunity to compare like-for-like fares for Canadian carriers.
