Canada, the summit of the Americas, your sides lapped by the two great oceans, your brow thrust into the Arctic ice your humble name is that of a giant.

Berthe de Tremaudan, Canadian poet.

About Canadian Culture

With only 35 million people, the country is a modest nation compared to its densely populated southern neighbor. There are over 200 distinct cultures in Canada. In fact, the nation is often defined as a "cultural mosaic" and has a greater mix of people from diverse backgrounds than almost anywhere else on Earth. Canada encourages its people to hold closely to their traditions and culture. Around two-fifths of the Country's population comes from an origin other than British or French.
