Yes, they have tournaments, and some are satellites to live tournaments such as to the Manitoba Liquor & Lotteries Poker Championship at McPhillips Station Casino from September 25-29, 2013 and WSOPC Canada
2013 in BC & QC.
Although I haven't played many, I think that their tournaments are probably pretty similar to most at other online poker rooms. Playnow and LottoQuebec combined don't have a very large following of (real money) players though, so the tournaments (and cash games) are fewer in number and less frequent. They offer SnGs, but these are really poorly attended.
I just looked and they don't seem to have Skrill, just credit card/Visa debit, Interac online and online payment from your bank account. The latter is the one that I use - there are no fees whatsoever, and the money takes a couple of days to get deposited to your Playnow acct. Withdrawals are soley by electronic transfer to your bank acct.
