Canada Travel Guide
North America is more than just the USA; Canada is the second largest country in the world and its southern border with the states is the longest common border in the world. Canada is made up of ten provinces and three territories, and is governed by a democratic parliament which acknowledges Queen Elizabeth II as the head of state through a constitutional monarchy. It has a diverse economy based on natural resources and trade and has one of the highest standard of living indexes worldwide.
Canada has two official languages; English and French. Road signs in Canada are generally in English although in some areas, they use both languages. The currency of Canada is the Canadian dollar, (signified with the $ or C$) it’s divided into 100 cents and notes come in denominations from 1 dollar up to 100 dollars.
With ten different provinces, it’s no surprise that Canada has a huge variety of attractions, experiences and events to offer. Take a drive on the wild side with a road trip through the Rockies; encounter a natural wonder with a visit to Niagara Falls; tick the Northern Lights off your bucket list with a tour in Northern Quebec; or simply enjoy the sites and culinary delights with a city break to one of Canada’s diverse metropolises. Beautiful in every season, Canada will open your eyes to a world of wonder, wildlife and waterfalls.
