In British, Austrailian and sometimes Canadian recipes, the imperial pint  is used which is 20 fluid ounces. American and sometimes Canadian recipes use the American pint of 16 fluid ounces.
Not all tablespoons are the same. The Australian tablespoon is 20 ml; the British tablespoon is 17.7 ml. In most Canadian recipes the tablespoon is 15 ml while the American tablespoon is actually 14.2 ml.

NOTE!
Always remember to double check your recipe. There is a big difference between Fluid Ounces which is a volume measurement and Dry Ounces which is a weight measurement.
