Canada and its culture

As told by one of my friends at Nashville garage door installation was telling me that Canada is located in north-America. The capital of Canada is Ottawa. The majority is Roman Catholic in Canada. Many languages are spoken in Canada. English and French are widely spoken by Canadians. English and French are also official languages of Canada recognized by Canada’s constitution. The other most spoken languages are Punjabi, Chinese, Italian, Arabic and Spanish.

Canadians are very polite, tolerant and hostile people. The visa policy of Canada is very welcoming. Canadians know how to retain their culture, customs and traditions. They are community-oriented people. They are very balanced people. Canadian are very apologetic in their public behavior.

Different regions of Canada are known by its specifications like Ontario is a business hub and people are conservative, British Colombia is considered as Canada of Future, Western Canada is blessed with very friendly, relaxed and open people, Quebec people are very independent etc

People in Canada call each other by first name rather than calling by surname. French Canadians hug and kiss on both cheeks but handshake is common greeting with firm handshake and eye contact and having a little smile on face.

Canadian people give gifts to each other on special occasions like Christmas and birthday parties. They never give white lilies as it is arranged on funerals. They even don’t give money/cash in gifts. Good quality chocolate, good quality wine bottle or flowers are best options. Quebec people send flowers in advance to host with a proper protocol.

Canadians are big eaters. They love food.  The dominating item in their meal is meat. Pizza, chow mein, cabbage rolls and plum putting are very famous while maple syrup is totally Canadian and is also very famous. On occasions they arrange parties and decorate their tables with mouthwatering food. They prepare and eat together with family and friends.
