It has been voted the best country in the world to live in for the past 3 years in a row by the United Nations. It consists of ten provinces and three territories, the newest territories is Nunavut.
Canada is the greatest country in the world! Why do I think so? Well there are several reasons, here are a few that I appreciate the most.
I believe Canada is a great country because of its beauty, for its natural resources, for the endless lakes and rivers, the great mountains and the different climates. I love having four beautiful seasons; I enjoy and appreciate the gift of Mother Nature.
Winter – The sun shines through the trees covered with snow; like million sparkling miniatures diamonds.
Spring – The apple trees are blossoming and the perfume of the lilacs and flowers are breath taken.
Summer – The warm weather, the sun is shining and it’s time for vacation.
Autumn (fall) – Time to harvest the fields, time to pick fruit, the vegetables and time to feast with the family.
In Canada, we have access to several service such social assistance programs, affordable housing, health care, and a strong government that helps its people.
We are very privileged to have free primary and secondary education and subsidized post-secondary studies. Canadian universities and colleges have a strong international reputation for high quality.
Safe & Secure
Canadians have a voice, have a right to vote and have a right to be safe and secure.
In Canada, we have the RCMP that protects, the Community policing, strict gun control laws, and a fair justice system make Canada safe and secure for everyone. Crime rates are among the lowest in the world, and continue to decline.
What I love the most is Canada’s Multiculturalism and diversity!
Canada is filled with beautiful and unique culture from around the world. Now many people from many nation come together to make this country special and unique. Born as an Acadian/Aboriginal, I am a proud Canadian, very proud of my country and my culture. I have a continuous desire to learn all about my country Canada and my heritage. I love that our country encourages everyone to retain their unique culture. Living with and accepting different cultures help us understand each other. Years ago, people were afraid to speak their language; today Canada accepts and encourages many cultures to thrive in society.
Be proud of who you are and speaking your language!
Rights and Freedoms
In Canada everyone is equal. Everyone has a right to be heard. These rights are guaranteed through our Canadian Constitution and the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Everyone has a right to preserve their own culture and we must also respect each other’s right to do the same. Canada is a great place to live!
We have a great country. “I am proud to be a Canadian!”
