Canada is vast and varied. It’s snow-capped Rocky Mountains, vast prairies, glaciers and arctic expanses. It’s also Montreal’s culture, coffee and a doughnut at Tim Hortons, British Columbia salmon and a Calgary rodeo. It’s a magnificent destination.
Canada's expanse of land stretches from the US border in the South to the Arctic Circle in the North. The country has a population of over 35 million people in 10 provinces and 3 territories. Ottawa is the capital city, and the diversity of cultures present expands across to the metropolis of Toronto and into French-influenced Montreal and Quebec. In addition, 60% of all the lakes in the world are found in Canada.
Furthermore, Canada is considered a constitutional monarchy and a member of the Commonwealth of Nations. It therefore, holds the Queen of England as the current head of state and retains strong ties with Britain.
This northern country is known to be one of the wealthiest countries in the world, as it has an abundance of natural resources and reputable trade networks across the globe.
From cosmopolitan cities to vast tracts of wilderness, the possibilities of Canadian attractions are limited only by your imagination.
There’s the Canadian Rockies mountain range in the south to explore, and the glaciers of the Arctic Circle in the north with fauna, flora, heritage and culture in every city or town in between. You might even hire yourself a pack of huskies and take your sled to see the Northern Lights in the night skies of the Northwest Territories.
Montreal and Quebec offer a French perspective on living in Canada, but nothing matches the bustling streets of Toronto for nightlife and shopping excursions. Additionally, Niagara Falls is a highlight, being one of the natural wonders of the world.
There are plenty of flights going to and from Canada's main airports in Toronto, Vancouver, Montréal, Calgary and Edmonton. Those coming from the United States may also choose to drive across the border. In addition, cruises dock frequently in many of the British Colombian ports and up the East coast. In general, the Canadian transport infrastructure is excellent.
