Thank you for your message! If you are taking the EuroStar and you are leaving the EU then there will be a place to drop off your Tax VAT refund at the train station. If you are not leaving the EU which you indicate you are not, then you will drop off your tax refund either at the last train station you are out or the last airport you are out before you leave the EU. I’ve written an article that outlines this entire process that you might find helpful! https://petiteinparis.com/vat-tax-refund-process-in-paris-france/
I hope you have a great time and that answers your question!

You are correct, luxury brands will be cheaper in the Europe not just Paris. The best rule of thumb to follow is if the brand is made in Europe then it will be cheaper in Europe. If the brand is from the USA for example, it will be more expensive in Europe. Common / popular luxury brands in Europe include, louis vuitton, hermes, celine, chanel, givenchy, ysl, and many more.
Yes the tax refund works for anyone who isn’t from the European Union (EU), so yes Canadians qualify for the tax refund!
I hope that answers your questions regarding luxury brands being cheaper in Europe!
