Canada - Daily Life
By Ekaterina Zhdanova-Redman
  

1     Life in Canada differs very little from that in Western countries and the United States. In fact, visitors see few differences between Canadian and American ways of life, except for French-speaking parts of the country, especially Quebec. But in general, living standards and habits are very similar to high western standards.
 
2     One of the most obvious features that make Canada different from its southern neighbor is its language. English and French are the country's two official languages. However, the French spoken in Canada is not, for the most part, the language of France. In Quebec, where the majority of the population is of French descent, the local tongue is known as Quebecois. Most Quebeckers, however, will understand formal French.
 
3     Like many of the people in the United States, most Canadians trace their ancestry to Europeans. A large part of the people is of British descent, and another large group is descended from early French settlers. After World War II there was a tremendous amount of immigrants from Europe, and the last several decades has also seen many people from Asia, Eastern Europe, and other parts of the world moving to Canada. All these immigrants to Canada brought their national customs and cultural traditions to the country, and added them to those of the first settlers. Thus, cultural diversity is one of the main features of Canada.
