Canada is the second largest country in the world and the largest in North America, and is known worldwide for its expansive landscape and fascinating cultural background. Almost all of the regions in Canada are popular with tourists, from the busy, bustling Toronto to the traditional living found on Vancouver Island. Canada is one of the world’s wealthiest countries, evident in the modernity of its large cities, and each of the regions has a very distinctive feel.
The people of Canada come from a diverse range of ethnic and cultural backgrounds, and the fact that there are two widely spoken languages (English and French) helps to distinguish the country from its neighbour, the USA. Canada is home to a thriving snowsports scene, and anyone with even a fleeting interest in nature would appreciate a visit to the Yukon and neighbouring territories, which are extremely remote and home to an abundance of terrains, animals and plants, along with the unique Inuit culture.
