Canada: a vast territory composed of multiple nations

Ten provinces, three territories, three oceans, 10 million square kilometers, 35 million people - that's Canada! This vast country is proud of having two official languages, in addition to hundreds of native languages. Canada also offers a number of local recipes like poutine, seal or even cod tongue, not to mention some of the best French food outside of France. Canada is made up of countless bodies of water and stretches of forest, not to mention oil, diamonds, zinc, natural gas, ice and even more. Here, you can enjoy hockey, Canadian football, curling, cinema, theatre and more festivals than you can name. And that’s not to mention music, the outdoors, wine-making, rodeo, skiing and endless horizons!

If we had only 10 seconds to describe this vast country, this is what we would say, but we could present it in 1,000 different ways and it would always come down to the same thing: Canada is a diverse country, in its geography, its people, its culture, its economy, its values and its restaurants. It is such a beautiful country that it’s almost impossible to choose between its great cities, including Montreal, Toronto, Winnipeg, St. John's, Vancouver and Halifax.

Travelling across Canada, by bike, by car, by bus, on the web or in a book, is to travel thousands of kilometres where the landscape changes - sometimes quickly - giving the impression that we are travelling in 13 different countries. From the Pacific Rim of British Columbia to the Rocky Mountains, from the steppes of the Northwest Territories to the long wheat fields of the Prairies, and the excitement of Toronto (our Canadian New York) to the great, lively island that is Montreal — the country is full of experiences to discover. Continuing along that path, we cross the Northern Coast up to the Gaspé Peninsula and then descend along the Atlantic coast before taking the Cabot Trail and returning to the sea to finish in this little gem: Newfoundland.

From one ocean to the other, tens of thousands of restaurant owners, shopkeepers, festival organizers (cinema, theatre and dance), and sports, entertainment and outdoor events display a creativity and a boundless inventiveness that shows what is done best here.

Where on the planet can one observe marine mammals in huge expanses of water, go sea kayaking, dog sledding, travel hundreds of kilometres of wild tracks, explore the Wine Route, eat fine French cuisine and the best Portuguese food, go skiing, diving, meet Hollywood stars, encounter world famous authors, discover Native American art, dance in the streets at night during a festival without worry, and enjoy poutine in foie gras from a 'food truck'? In Canada, of course. But do not expect to do it all in one day.

Alberta is not just natural gas and oil deposits. Though this may be the backbone of its economy, the province has much more to offer. Think of the municipalities of Banff and Jasper, the magnificent Rocky Mountains, its national parks, its gourmet festivals and the famous Calgary Stampede. Alberta is a province to be discovered.

British Columbia

If Quebec is the mirror of Europe, then British Columbia is a reflection of Asia, where many of its inhabitants originated. Nestled by the Pacific Ocean, British Columbia is the ideal place for outdoor enthusiasts interested in skiing, hiking, water sports and much more in some of the most temperate weather in the country.


As in Quebec, it’s easy to feel a European presence in Manitoba, but not because of its infrastructure; Portuguese, Ukrainian, Scottish, French and other influences can all be tasted and seen here. Note to curling fans: this is the province for you!

New Brunswick

The only fully bilingual province in Canada lives off its mines, fisheries, natural gas and tourism — and they have tourists in spades! After dining on delicious lobster, what better way to spend the day than to attend one of the many shows offered here, or to wander around one of its nine national parks?

Newfoundland and Labrador

A gem that is becoming less and less ignored in the Atlantic Ocean, Newfoundland is the ideal place from which to admire the icebergs, both in the spring and summertime. Visit St. John's and the East Coast, where it is like travelling in Ireland or Scotland. As for the expedition enthusiasts, you’re hard-pressed to do better than Labrador.

Nova Scotia

Visiting Nova Scotia without taking the Cabot Trail is like eating corn without butter. This Atlantic province is immersed in Gaelic culture. What a pleasure to travel along its lengthy coastline — about 7,000 km! — and to enjoy the freshest seafood available.

Northwest Territories

The Northwest Territories are home to the 8th and 10th largest lakes in the world, in addition to Canada's largest river, the Mackenzie, where one can go fishing. The arts and crafts of the First Nations have a strong presence here, where half the population – about 20,000 people – are of indigenous origin.


This territory, which occupies 20% of Canada's surface area, is only occupied by 35,000 people — more than three quarters of whom are of Inuit origin. Nunavut is a paradise for those who enjoy solitude, rugged beauty, long expeditions and a view of the sunrise around the clock.


It is difficult to find a city that is more multiethnic than Toronto, Canada's largest city, where 5.5 million people live. Koreatown, Chinatown, Little Jamaica, Little Portugal — these neighbourhoods are to be discovered! And it’s impossible to be bored in Ottawa, the centre of Canadian politics and host of the oldest farmer's market in the country.

Prince Edward Island

Since 1997, Canada's smallest province has been easily accessible by car thanks to the construction of the Confederation Bridge, which crosses 13 kilometres of the Atlantic Ocean. It is not easier than ever to discover Charlottetown and all that the island has to offer.


The aptly named Belle Province is the most European place in North America. Its natural beauty, renowned restaurants, warm people, spacious grounds and thousands of trails, lakes and rivers are not to be missed.


This province — with 100,000 lakes, rivers and streams and about forty national parks — is home to only slightly more than one million Canadians of varied origins. Here, it is common to hear French, Ukrainian, German and Cree. Everyone has his or her own way of supporting the Roughriders of the CFL!


The gold rush is still alive and well in the imagination of visitors of this Northwest Province. Tourists flock to the Yukon, and how can it be otherwise in a region where one can see — during spring and autumn evenings — the most beautiful Northern Lights? Its capital, Whitehorse, is home to many festivals, art exhibitions and shows.
