5 fun facts about Canada

1. Canada is the second largest country in the world.

With almost 10 million square kilometers, it would take you more than four years to walk its coastline, just in case you ever thought about it, haha. A curious fact is that Newfoundland and Labrador is actually closer to London than to Vancouver, making another country a closer destination to Newfoundland and Labrador than one of its own Canadian provinces.

2. Canada is very multicultural.

Canada loves to welcome new people. 21.9% of Canadians were born in another country, and it is estimated to reach up to 30% by 2036 according to statcan.gc.ca. With more than 200 nationalities across the country, Canada is North America's most beautiful rainbow of diversity.

3. Sorry!

"Sorry" is the most important word in Canada. The education in Canada is incredible, most people have impeccable values, and the word "sorry" is the most used word in their vocabulary.

4. Canada and its representative animals

The beaver and the moose are Canada's national mascots. Both are representative animals, and are found on the national currency. A moose normally weighs between 350 and 450 kg, which is fine but can sometimes cause a bit of trouble, for example, moose love to cross roads and create a bit of trouble as they cause a lot of vehicle collisions.
