CANADA What electrical service do I have?

Okay fellas I'm not too electrical savvy but would lke to know a few things.I'm in Canada
Ill post my first question in this post.
Our 27 year old house has a 100 amp service breaker box in the garage so what is it 240-120 or 220-110? How do I tell ? The service is buried underground and comes into the breaker box from there.

240/120 or 220/110 is all the same type of service. The current nominal voltage levels are 120/240. They can vary anywhere from 110/220 to 130/260 and still be considered normal.

Do not PM with questions that can be asked in a forum. I will not respond.
