When describing typical attributes of Canadians, it is not uncommon to hear an Australian liken our own flesh and blood with that of Canadians – easy-going, friendly, a similar sense of humour, and a love for sport and the great outdoors. But how on earth do they put up with the cold?!
Parts of Canada become mighty cold in winter but this is not an excuse to remain idle – snowboarding, skiing, curling and ice-hockey are all very popular winter sports.
Like Australians, Canadians enjoy a large amount of personal space, with an average of only three people per square kilometer (Australia has two). Canada is divided into two parts – English speaking and French speaking (Quebec). Canada is also home to many famous festivals such as the Montreal Jazz Festival and the Toronto Film Festival.
