The name ”Canada” dates back to the early Spanish explorations of North America, when they were asked what was north and they said: “Acá nada”, which means “nothing up there”, however, the situation has changed since then. Its culture is a mix between the native tribes that have lived in the region for millenia with the europeans influences from British and French in the time of the colonization. Over time, elements of the cultures of Canada’s immigrant populations have become incorporated as well.
Canadians are among the friendliest people in the world, they are helpful and extremely welcoming. They are also very proud of their country and will enjoy to show you around.
