Canada means “village” and comes from the Iroquois word “Kanata.” It has been in use since the earliest European settlement in Canada.

They were talking about the nearby settlement of Stadacona, but Cartier thought that they were referring to the entire area.

The Polite Canadians.
Saying “please” and “thank you” is important and part of the Canadian culture.
You will notice right away how friendly we all are.
Canadians don’t always mean what they say.
This has to do with just being nice and not having to say NO.
Therefore you have to be able to read between the words.
Don’t be surprised, if a Canadian tells you to meet up somewhere and he doesn’t show up or cancels at the last minute.
The word “sorry” is used an awful lot.
It’s not only used to apologize for your actions, but it’s also used when you bump into someone, sneeze, interrupt, or for having a different opinion.
It’s just a word being used, without much meaning.
More Facts about Canadians.
The population in Canada in 2017 was approximate 36.5 million.
Canadians have invented Kerosene, insulin, the IMAX film system, the snowmobile, the electric cooking range and much more.

Canadian Food Facts.
A Canadian eats an average of 190 eggs per year (I wish this number would mean organic eggs).

According to one study, on average Canadians consume over 23 pounds of Cheddar per person annually.
Aged cheddar is the only one not coloured orange.
Find out more about Canadian Country Food.
Tim Horton’s is a National Symbol.
Tim Horton’s is an incredibly popular coffee and doughnut chain.
There is a Tim Horton’s on every corner in any Canadian city and you also find a “Timmy” in every larger town.
Tim Horton, a National Hockey League legend, opened the first store in Hamilton, Ontario in 1964, when coffee and a donut cost 10 cents each.
Tim Horton’s has developed into a gigantic franchise.
You still can buy the Dutchie and Apple Fritter, two of the original donuts offered at the time.
Also, try the Timbits, get a deal with a box of twenty.
Maple Syrup and Birch Syrup.
Is there anything more Canadian than maple syrup.
The skill of collecting and processing the sweet sap of the sugar maple was already known by the native people of eastern North America, long before the arrival of European settlers.
Make sure you try pure maple syrup with your pancakes instead of the corn syrup which is often used as a cheap replacement.
In northern British Columbia, you will also find Birch Syrup, which is more rare and has a different, but delicious taste.
Macaroni and Cheese (KD).
There is no other packaged food in Canada better known then our orange flavoured Kraft Dinner.
We even have a nickname for the favourite pasta and cheese dish; every Canadian child and teenager knows KD.
KD is also my son Kevin’s initials…how funny is that.
Kraft Macaroni and cheese is somewhat of a Canadian national dish under children and young adults.
It comes in a blue package including two pouches, one with the macaroni and one with the cheese mix.
If you try it, make sure you buy the original.
We eat French Fries covered with Gravy.
All Canadians know that the real, authentic poutine comes from the province of Quebec.
However, you can get different versions of it all across the country.
It is a dish made up of French fries, fresh cheese curds, and brown gravy.
Canadian Beer, Wine, and Drinking Facts.

The beer named after Canada is called Molson Canadian

Molson Coors Canada is the oldest brewery in North America

The Moosehead Brewery in Saint John, New Brunswick turns out 1,642 bottles of beer per minute.
Canada is famous for its ice wine, made from pressed frozen grapes.
It’s usually used as a dessert wine.
Some of the country’s world-famous wines are from wine is also produced in Ontario, Quebec and Nova Scotia.
Ice Cubes.
Canadians are puzzled by the lukewarm water and drinks presented to them in Europe.
Europeans, on the other hand, can’t figure out why drinks in Canada are served full of ice, and the glasses are empty after a few sips.
So, if you want to be a real tourist, ask for drinks with No Ice.
Free Drink Refills.
Maybe we do it because of the ice.
In lots of restaurants, you will be presented with a second cup of soda and unlimited free refills of coffee.
Having your Glass or Coffee Cup taken away when empty.
Actually, to me it makes sense.
Europeans, on the other hand, can’t comprehend this.
You are in a restaurant and the waiter takes your empty glass or coffee cup away when it’s empty.
Honestly, you don’t have to leave the restaurant when your glass or cup is gone.
But, if the restaurant is filling up and people are waiting for a seat, you might as well move on.
Drinking Age.
In Canada, the legal drinking age is 19, or 18 in some provinces and territories.
Canada is very conservative regarding drinking laws.
You are not allowed to bring alcohol out on the streets and drink in public.
If you attend a rodeo or town festival, there will be a confined area for drinking and you will need two picture IDs to get in.
Most drinking is done at home or in bars, or on a campfire out in the wilderness.
Watch out when camping in provincial parks.
Learn from the Canadians and pour your drink into a travel coffee mug, when drinking outside.
More Wired Canada Facts.
The Measuring System.
Not only visitors to Canada get confused about our measuring system, but we are also confused as well.
Canada is officially under the metric system, but never got fully converted.
Speed limits are in km/h.
Road distances are in m or km.
The temperature is given in degrees Celsius.
Heights and weights are still in imperial units.
For lumber and building material the imperial system is still used as well.
In many stores produce are still sold by the (English) pound.
This might have something to do with our high food prices.
The price for a pound of fruit doesn’t seem too bad, but once you see the kg price you might be shocked.
In my opinion, it’s done to trick the consumers.
The fact is, we are a half-converted country that can flip-flop between metric and imperial measurements four times in the same sentence.
We Don’t Use Umbrellas, We Wear hoodies.
I always have to smile when guests from Europe arrive with an umbrella in their luggage.
We don’t use umbrellas where I live.
It might be a cultural quirk; we are just too cool for umbrellas.
The only time I remember having used an umbrella was over a campfire in the pouring rain to keep the fire from going out.
Most of us think that umbrellas are stupid and ugly and we don’t need to use them.
We Canadians just wear a hoodie and pull it over our head.
We might be soaked by the time we get to the car, but there is no freakin way that we will be caught in public using an umbrella.
So, leave your umbrella at home and pack your cortex gear instead.
Supermarkets Will Make You Speechless.
Our average Canadian supermarkets are huge and you might be bewildered by the assortment of choices you witness.
There’s an entire aisle of breakfast cereal, another aisle for soft drinks, a dozen brands of yogurt, and how many flavours of chips.
Large stores are open till late at night and on weekends.
Hunting and Guns.
Lots of Canadians hunt, and having a few rifles in the house is the norm.
Since hunting is a tradition of First Nation people, guns are generally treated as tools, rather than toys.
Guns don’t have to be registered, but we have to do a course to be certified to buy rifles and ammunition.
Two Weeks Of Vacation.
Canada ranks third last among economically advanced countries in the amount of paid vacation time, according to a U.
For the most part, employees get ten vacation days annually.
Only Japan ranks behind us and the United States, taking the last place.
No wonder many of us are trying to be self-employed.
So before you Europeans complain again about your work hours please think about us Canadians.
Health System in Canada.
Our health system sucks big time.
Canada has a severe shortage of doctors.
I might be in terrible pain, but having to wait a few months for an MRI and two weeks to see my physician is the norm.
If you have to go to Emergency at the hospital, you will be there for hours waiting your turn, no matter in how much pain you are.
I speak from experience when I arrived with a broken vertebra a couple of years ago.
Make sure you sign-up for a before coming to Canada.
This way, you won’t have to pay out any cash if you need to see a Doctor.
Canadian Weather.
As far as countries go, Canada is pretty much the coldest, together with Russia.
More Canadians die each year from exposure to extremely cold temperatures than from other natural events, according to Statistics Canada.
Come to British Columbia in the summer and you will experience the extreme heat.
Forest fires are common during the summer season and we often have campfire restrictions.

Santa Claus is Canadian.
Santa’s home at the North Pole lies in a disputed area between a few countries claiming the North Pole.
But who cares, Santa Claus is Canadian, according to the immigration minister.
Every year.

Canada’s post office receives millions of letters addressed to “Santa Claus

North Pole” and Santa responds to every one of them.
How cool is that.
Animals Are Wild.
While exploring Canada’s wilderness there is a big chance that you will come across.
We have black bears, grizzly bears, polar bears, elk, moose, cougars, bobcats and much more.
Wild animals are beautiful and incredible to see, but they are also extremely dangerous.
Act responsibly when you see a wild animal and stay in the car when you come across one while driving.
Before hiking in the wilderness, learn Canada facts regarding wildlife safety and what to do if you encounter a wild animal.
Find out about other in Canada.
Canada Has A Polar Bear Prison.
Churchill, a remote town in the far north of has the world’s only polar bear prison.
Churchill is known as the Polar Bear Capital of the World and it is best known for the polar bears that inhabit the area in the fall.
A polar bear prison is a place for the polar bears that come too close to the town and become a threat to residents.
It is also a fact, that the locals in Churchill leave cars and houses unlocked in case people are passing by and need a place to retreat from the polar bears.

It’s because we have a goal: to visit all of the 61 US national parks

We’re making progress, too: we’ve visited 50 of them so far.
Each park that we’ve been to is spectacular, and we’re sure you won’t be disappointed if you visit one.
And you can’t really go wrong with free entry.
Some of the ones left on our list are easily accessible, .

Like Shenandoah and Great Smoky Mountains

But we also have  that are going to take a little more effort (and a little more cash!) to get to.
But we’re going to do it.
We highly recommend setting travel goals for yourself and your family .
Goals get you motivated and give you a focus.
It’s fun to plan and make steps toward a goal as well, and goal setting and taking the steps to complete a goal are great lessons for kids.
(And remember, if one of those kids is a fourth grader, your family is eligible for a !) We realize that setting a goal to visit all 61 national park s might be a little too much for some people, but you can start small.
Maybe you could set a goal to visit one new place each year, or to try a new kind of vacation: maybe a  or a.
Or maybe your goal could be to accumulate enough to take a trip to your dream destination in five years.
Once you’ve got your goal, start taking the steps to make your goals a reality.
If you’ve already got a goal, evaluate how well you’re doing on getting there.
And please, share your goals in the comments section.
We hope that you get a chance to get out and  in one of your national parks soon — maybe even for free.
