10 Things You Never Knew About Canada

Canada has a reputation of being nice, and of being cold. While these two things are often true, there’s a whole lot more to “that country up north” than the demeanor of its people or its very cold winters. If the cold weather or people saying “sorry” didn’t come to mind first, perhaps Justin Bieber or Drake did. Canada’s rich history is unknown to most people, but if they knew even half of it, Canada would get a lot more props from people than it does now. Here are ten facts about Canada that no one has ever told you but you definitely need to know.

UFO History

The world’s first UFO landing pod was built in St. Paul, Alberta.

Staying Hydrated

Over 20% of the world’s fresh water is in Canada, which definitely adds to its natural beauty.

Swimmer’s Paradise

Canada has more lakes than every other country COMBINED! That means there’s a lot of summer fun to be had!

Beary Good News

There are about 25,000 polar bears left on earth, and 15,500 of them are in Canada!

Sweet Stuff

Next time you enjoy some maple syrup on your pancakes, keep in mind there’s a 77% chance it came from Quebec, Canada.

Bearded Canadian

Sarwan Singh holds the world record for the longest beard. He and his 2.37m beard are Canadian!

Canadian Currency

The Canadian one dollar coin is called a loonie, and the two dollar coin is known as a toonie. Yes, you read that correctly!

It Really Can Be That Cold

Canada had its lowest recorded temperature in 1947. It reached a low of -63 C, or -81.4 F.

Canadians, Mac, and Cheese
