Canada stands out on the international stage for its political, economic and social stability and transparency. For more than 20 years, it ranks high on the OECD list of the best places to live, in part thanks to its high quality public education system. Diversified country in terms of landscapes, climate and population, Canada is a dynamic, egalitarian and secure country.
Culture and Values
In addition to recognizing its heritage from the First Nations, Canadian culture has its roots in its two colonizing peoples: the British and the French. These two nations have influenced Canada’s official languages and culture.
Today, Canada is recognized as a welcoming land that takes great pride in its multicultural and multi-ethnic character with people from all over the world. Canadians from coast to coast share diverse origins and are proud of their roots and their shared values.
Despite the vastness of their country, Canadians share the values of equity, diversity and respect for others. They are very proud of their differences, of multiculturalism and of their varied origins, whether they come from First Nations, English or French colonizing peoples, or from subsequent waves of immigration.
Canadians are also very attached to their political, social and health care systems.
