The exceptions would be informal writing in the PRC or textbooks from the PRC teaching these languages. I have a textbook for Cantonese and it's all in simplified characters.

I thought I read a zKing post saying that most modern day Cantonese is written in simplified, and with Mandarin specific characters to boot, much to his annoyance.
