Living in Canada

The second largest country in the world, Canada is a vast expanse situated in the northern part of the North American continent, but only the fourth largest by land area as its expanse is characterised by the most fresh water lakes in the world. It is a highly geologically active area with many earthquakes and potentially active volcanoes occurring there. The seasons are distinct there, and there can be particularly harsh winters in some areas, and warmer summers, although the climates vary across its vast area. It is a highly urbanised nation, with 82% of the population living in medium to large cities; this is understandable due to the harsh conditions at certain times of year. The population is also very diverse, as indigenous peoples remain but British and French colonisation has also resulted in European influence; as such its official languages are English and French. Despite this, multiculturalism is very important to the Canadian constitution and its equality and inclusiveness is recognised as a huge achievement. Canada also has strong national symbols, including the maple leaf in its flag, as well as the beaver and more recently the totem pole, originating from its indigenous cultures. Economically, it is the tenth largest in the world and is a top ten world trading nation with a highly globalised and mixed economy. Its main export is petroleum and crude oils, but manufacturing, mining and service sectors are also important for the economy.
