Top 10 Things Canada is Famous For

The Top Ten
1 Maple Syrup

@Martin_Canine - yes, it's sweet like honey. Its sugar and flavor are natural because maple trees store sugar. It's smooth- and silky-textured, with a sweet, distinctive flavor - hints of caramel with overtones of vanilla.
It's widely used in Canada - a great ice cream topping because it's similar to caramel topping; pancake topping instead of honey or chocolate. In our grocery stores we have yogurt with maple syrup. It's also used in many dishes to get this sweet-sour-salty taste: meat (pork ribs), salads, often in bean dishes, etc.

So delicious on pancakes and waffles! You can use it to replace sugar in many recipes as well.

It's taste can't even be compared to table syrup.

Yes this is Canada In North America is very Famous fir its maple syrup do you agree?

I would eat this with pancakes or waffles everyday if I could!

2 Niagara Falls Niagara Falls is a city in Ontario, Canada. It is located on the western bank of the Niagara River in the Golden Horseshoe region of Southern Ontario, with a population of 82,997 at the 2011 census.

I'm just saying that this should not be number two! It is also in the USA and les chutes montmorency in Quebec are better. There are lots of Canadian natural wonders that are better than this, like Banff and Jasper, the bay of fundy, great bear rainforest, Dinosaurs Provincial Park, mount Logan and the Bruce peninsula. Not saying that the Niagara Falls suck, it's just maybe Banff or Jasper should be up here on the list!

Where I call home. Took a walk along the Niagara River and the falls tonight, in fact.

The world's unofficial honeymoon capital.

Sure, why not. Eh?

5 National Flag Canada is a country in North America that is next to the United States, and it's the 2nd largest country in the world by area (size is 9.985 million km²). This country has 10 provinces, and 3 territories. Canada became a dominion on July 1, 1867. Its 10 provinces are: Ontario, British Columbia, Quebec, Alberta, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island. Its 3 territories are: Yukon, Northwest territories, and Nunavut. Toronto, Quebec City, Montreal, Vancouver, Winnipeg, St. John's, and Fredericton are major cities in the country. Canada's capital city, Ottawa, is in the southeastern province of Ontario, near the city of Montreal more.

Probably the most recognizable flag - just a red maple leaf.

That flag was made in 1965.

6 "Eh?"

I'm Canadian but I've never heard anybody say that in person...

Example: "You are my new neighbour, eh? "
This was the Canadian version of "You are my new neighbour, aren't you? "

7 Ice Hockey Ice hockey is a contact team sport played on ice, usually in a rink, in which two teams of skaters use their sticks to shoot a vulcanized rubber puck into their opponent's net to score points.

8 Kind People

9 Health Care System

The pandemic has clearly displayed the bloated incompetence and bureaucracy of the Canadian healthcare system. Sadly it's an example of how governments fail to even recognize let alone respond to inefficiency and failure in the process of administering healthcare. Our doctors, nurses and support staff do a great job but are hindered by government's inability to prioritize. Healthcare workers were fired for failing to take unapproved vaccines, government has no process in place to assess qualified immigrant healthcare professionals and Canadian doctors spend fifty percent of the time filling out private insurance companies paperwork. Typical bloated incompetence at the management level.

The public health care system is joke. It is a typical government bureaucracy filled with endless redundancy and inefficiency. Mid 2023 and we are 40,000 doctors short, 6,000,000 citizens do not have a doctor or access to a doctor. 50% of a Canadian doctors time is spent filling out insurance companies paperwork which indicates pretty clearly what the government's priorities are. There are 20,000 immigrant doctors who have come to canada who are not allowed to practice because our incompetent federal government bureaucrats are incapable of implementing a procedure that determines their eligibility to practice. I'm 65 and moved to a different province pre pandemic and I'm still on several lists to be accepted for a doctor. Nurses and staffers are completely overwhelmed and work many hours of overtime weekly. Canada's healthcare workers do a great job under overwhelming conditions. These conditions have created by decades of complacency and incompetence government officials. When a ...more

Yes the Canadian health care system is a bloated bureaucracy that is incapable of providing for the health care needs of Canadians. Federal and provincial governments incompetence is mostly to blame but corporate insurance companies are so easily able to suck the money out of the system. The DOCTORS and NURSES are overworked hero's. Canadas health care system is a joke. Shameful

10 Poutine Poutine is a Canadian dish, originating in the province of Quebec in the late 1950s, made with French fries and cheese curds topped with light brown gravy. Poutine is the most popular dish in Quebec. It's also found across Canada and in some places in the northern United States. Poutine has many variations as many toppings can be added - ham, chicken, sausage, bacon, and everything else somebody may like.

My canadian friend loves poutine and feels homesick they should sell it here in America.

Canada's greatest creation! Tastes better in Quebec though.

It's literally the best thing I've ever had!
