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.

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.

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