General information about Canada
It is a country in North America that consists of 10 provinces and three territories. It is located in the northern part of the continent and extends from the Atlantic Ocean in the east to the Pacific Ocean in the west and extends northward into the Arctic Ocean. Canada is the second country in the world in terms of total area. Canada’s border with the United States to the south and northwest is the longest in the world.
Canada is a federation consisting of ten provinces and three territories. These can be divided into regions: Western Canada, Central Canada, Atlantic Canada, and Northern Canada (Eastern Canada refers to Central Canada and Atlantic Canada together).
The provinces have greater autonomy than the regions. The provinces are responsible for most of Canada’s social programs (such as health care, education, and social welfare) and together generate more revenue than the federal government, a nearly unique structure among unions in the world.
Culture and History in Canada
The word Canada is originally from Kenta, a word that goes back to the Iroquois language in Saint Lawrence and means a village or settlement. In 1535, the indigenous people of present-day Quebec City used this word to guide French explorer Jacques Cartier to the village of Stadacona. Later Cartier used the word Canada to refer not only to that particular village, but to the entire region under the rule of Chief Donacona (the chief of the village of Stadakona). By 1545, all European books and maps referred to this explored area as Canada.
Canada occupies a large part of northern North America, and shares land borders with the United States in the south and the state of Alaska in the northwest, and extends from the Atlantic Ocean in the east to the Pacific Ocean in the west, and to the north lies the Arctic Ocean. Canada is the second largest country in the world after Russia. In terms of land area, Canada ranks fourth.
