A comprehensive insight into Canada - the second largest country in the world.

World in Focus: Canada Summary

World in Focus: Canada by Heather Blades

Canada is a country of amazing natural beauty, ranging from the Rocky Mountain peaks to the frozen wastes of the Northwest Territories. Most Canadians live in the cities of Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver and Ottowa, and enjoy one of the world's highest standards of living. However, many of the indigenous Canadian Indians suffer high unemployment, poor health and housing. Canada's population includes many different peoples who have settled in the country in the past. Yet the government has recently been accused of allowing in too many economic migrants, leading to rising tensions in the country. For many years, French-speaking Quebec has kept its identity separate while being part of Canada. But if Quebec wins its independence the Canadian government will lose its largest province.
