What’s the best part about being Canadian? It really depends on what area of life you're talking about, because being Canadian improves almost everything. You get hurt? There might not be a better stepping stone to your recovery, than making sure you are a Canadian citizen with health care.

When you think about Canada, one of the first stereotypes that come to mind may be that we are too nice. Is that a bad thing? Our stereotypes, whether it’s apologizing or being friendly, can just seem like good manners that come second nature if you’ve been doing it all your life. Another stereotype is that we are accepting of other people and as a result hopefully make people feel encouraged to learn about our culture, while also expressing their own.

If you love the outdoors, Canada is one of the most beautiful places in the world with countless monuments and areas to explore. So much so, that the top summer tourist destination according to National Geographic, in the entire world was to Muskoko, Ontario which hosts the worlds largest collection of lakes.

Not to mention that some of the most influential people have been Canadian (looking at you, Terry Fox!), and we hopefully have a future that is looking brighter than ever before. There are negatives to being Canadian, but there are negatives to being a part of any country. What helps make Canada unique, is how all of these features come together to really make you feel blessed to be Canadian.

No matter what you are looking for in a country, there is a place in Canada where you can probably find just what you’re looking for. That fact, combined with some fantastic features that you really need to be Canadian to understand, help make up my list of the 10 best parts about being Canadian.

Is there any food better than a poutine? You would know the answer to that if you were all about your Canadian pride! The answer, is no (duh) and the reasons are countless. Sure, you could always do the traditional poutine with gravy, cheese curds and fries. Yet there are so many options! Throw some meat on there, some people throw an egg on there, whatever you can imagine I am sure there is a poutine out there for you. It might be around in places other than Canada, but we all know that it’s up here where the best poutine is found.
