Can't speak for Canada, but it tends to be similar to the US, except with fewer players. My general strategy is to use my debit card (not my credit card) to withdraw enough cash to survive those "we don't take cards" places. However, if your credit card is a no-FTF card, AND if that still applies to cash advances (big IF -- CC issuers will code the transaction as a cash advance even if you have a credit balance), your method might work.
Have you talked to your bank about what fees they charge for ATM withdrawals abroad from your debit card?
