I can't speak for the bigger campuses, but on my campus (University of Manitoba), you absolutely do not need them. Most people here don't even know that we have a Greek system. Once I joined Alpha Gam, I found out that a dancer that had taught a workshop for me once was an Alpha Gam about 15 years ago, but that's the only Greek connection I've figured out, for myself at least. I think it would next to impossible to get recs at my campus, for anyone who isn't a legacy.

I'm going to take a guess and say that recs would be helpful at UBC and U of T, as they are fairly large Greek systems (at least for Canada). However, I would defer to Greeks actually from those particular schools, that's just an educated guess.
