Snapshot of Canada – Canada’s two official languages are English and French. French is the official language in the providence of Quebec, though New Brunswick, Ontario and Alberta also have significant French-speaking populations. About two-thirds of Canadians are Christian, with another 24% not having any religion. Canadian culture has been mainly influenced by England, France, and native traditions. Canada has lots of cultural crossover with the United States – American entertainment is popular in English-speaking areas, while many Canadian musicians, entertainers, and writers have found success internationally as well. Ice hockey and lacrosse are Canada’s most popular sports, though curling and Canadian football (a variant of American football) are also popular. Popular Canadian foods include Poutine (french fries covered with cheese curds and gravy), butter tarts (a dessert item), and maple syrup. Several different types of meat are hunted and eaten in more rural areas of the country, including caribou, venison, elk, and even seal. Street vendors sell hot dogs, falafel, pizza, and other fast-food-type items in major cities.
*The French overseas collectivity known as Saint Pierre and Miquelon are part of the Canada Halifax Mission but there does not appear to be a church presence there at this time*
