As Canada’s 150th birthday approaches, it’s time to stop and appreciate a few of the wonderful things this country has to offer. While yes, poutine, Caesar’s and moose sightings are all fantastic, there are MANY other amazing features of this incredible nation.

Here are 5 of our favourites:

5. We are vast and beautiful

Canada is the second largest country in the world – a whopping 9.9 million square kilometres of never ending forests, lakes and rivers. With access to three oceans, breathtaking mountain ranges and internationally renowned cities, this nation is full of beauty, diversity and opportunity. 

Ottawa alone houses renowned attractions such as the Rideau canal, Parliament Hill and the 180 kilometres of recreational parkland.

4. Music 

Canadians know how to make good music and how to succeed all over the world. From Drake to Justin Bieber, Neil Young to Joni Mitchell, and Celine Dion to Bryan Adams, our country is wellrepresented across all genres of the international music scene.  

3. Maple Syrup 

Alright, this one may be a tad over used, but c’mon – it’s maple syrup. This just so happens to be one of Canada’s defining features, and for good reason! There’s no comparing some good quality, Canadian maple syrup.

If you are a Canadian who has never had the joy of attending a sugaring off event, boy are you missing out! You will have to wait for springtime to experience the fun of one of these maple syrup themed parties, but trust us – it’s worth it.

2. Our Stereotypes 

Is there actually anything bad about being a stereotypical Canadian? Apologizing too much, using good manners and being accepting of others doesn’t seem like that much of a problem! We are happy to fit our stereotypes.                       

1. Diversity

This is a big one. 

We are lucky to live in a nation that integrates and accepts many different people, languages, and cultures into its inner fabric.

Canada is an incredible country, with many quirks and attributes to be celebrated! Happy 150th birthday Canada, here’s to another 150 years of greatness.
