Read, Debate: Engage.


Known for its civility, calm-mannered citizens, maple syrup and vast landscape, Canada is the world's second largest country in terms of its sheer size, however its relatively low population of just over 37 million makes much of its land uninhibited. Both French and English are the official languages spoken in Canada.

Its democratic parliamentary structure follows that of Britain as the country is made up of former British colonies. Canada's long stretching border with the U.S. means that it has close ties with North America when it comes to trade, like the extensive NAFTA, however as an economically wealthy and developed nation, Canada stands its grounds when it comes to U.S. negotiations.
