Canada is one of the largest countries in the world, located along the northern borders of the United States and spanning a massive distance between the Pacific and Atlantic oceans. Canada spans an area of nearly 10,000 square miles and, like the United States, has numerous time zones. Canada is composed of ten provinces and three territories, and is known for her wildlife, beautiful terrain, and of course, hockey.
Canada has the most fresh water lakes, rivers, and streams than any other country in the world, and almost ten percent of Canadian territory is comprised of water, with over two million lakes that offer limitless adventures for visitors.
Population and language
Canada is home to over 35 million people, mainly of English and French descent, although a number of native Indian tribes including the Chippewa, the Cree and the Inuktitut, among others, also heavily populate its domain. The official languages of Canada are English and French, and street and highway signs as well as buildings, businesses, and landmarks are labeled in both French and English. Ethnic groups found in Canada are a mixture of those of French and European origin, as well as those from the British Isles, as well as American Indian, and some Middle Eastern, African and Asian backgrounds.
The main religion practiced in Canada is Roman Catholicism, followed by Baptist, Protestant, and Lutheran as well as other Christian denominations. A very small percentage of Canadians practiced Muslim, while nearly 20% of Canadian inhabitants claim atheist or agnostic temperaments.
Major Cities and Tourist Destinations
Numerous cities throughout Canada are among the most commonly visited, such as Québec City, located in Québec province, Toronto, located in Ontario province, and Victoria, located in British Columbia, and Edmonton, located in Alberta. The Northwest Territories and Yukon provinces are extremely popular to hunters and fishers who come from around the world to enjoy some of the best that the wilds of Canada have to offer. Canada is also known for Nova Scotia, in Halifax, where the victims of the Titanic are buried, as well as Prince Edward Island, rich in history, wildlife, and some of the best fishing in the world.
Hudson Bay is located in Canada, offering a plethora of land-based and water-based activities as well as a rich history in the development of Canada, preferred trade, and British colonization.
The climate in Canada is as diverse as its inhabitants. Temperatures vary in the southern regions of the country to sub-arctic and arctic in the northern regions such as Yukon and the Northwest Territories. Spring, summer and fall are relatively mild, but winter can be bitterly cold with heavy snowfall, blizzards, and below zero temperatures throughout winter.
The main currency of Canada is the Canadian dollar. Canada enjoys a relatively stable economy, mostly as a result of its high-tech industrial development. With a GDP of over U.S. $1 trillion, the country relies heavily on services, followed by industry. Canada's agricultural products include grains, fruits and vegetables, fish, and forest products, while its industries focus on fish products, transportation equipment, and unprocessed as well as processed minerals, wood, and paper products. Canada exports over U.S. $460 billion in commodities such as industrial machinery, aircraft, telecommunications, and wood products. Canada imports approximately U.S. $460 billion in crude oil, electricity, and durable consumer goods.
Numerous airports (over 1,000) serve all parts of Canada, with over one million kilometers of roadways. Travel by land is more common than railway and waterway travel in Canada, while many, due to its size, rely on airports to traverse the country. In the cities and rural areas, car hires are especially popular, as they give visitors a chance to take their time visiting various regions on their own schedule. Major airports in Canada include that are not limited to the London international Airport, Niagara Falls/Niagara South Airport, and Ottawa’s Macdonald-Cartier International Airport in Ottawa province, the Montréal Mirabelle International Airport, Montréal Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport and the Québec/Jean Lesage International Airport in Québec province, and Vancouver International Airport and Victoria International Airport in British Columbia. The Erik Nielsen Whitehorse International Airport in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory, takes visitors to the extreme wilderness of Canada.
