Canada Travel Information
Canada is a large country (the 2nd largest in the world in terms of area) located in North America. The country has coastlines on the Atlantic Ocean, the Arctic Ocean, and the Pacific Ocean, but land borders only with the United States of America. There are actually two different and borders with the US: a long Southern border with the contiguous 48 states of the US, and a border in the Northwest with the American state of Alaska.
The population of Canada was around 33 million as of 2007, and growing fast. Some of this population growth was coming from natural growth, but the majority was due to immigration, because Canada has the highest per capita rate of immigration in the world.
Most of Canada's population live within 100 miles (161 kilometers) of the southern border with the US. Major population centers include the capital city Ottawa, and the country's largest city, Toronto, which has a population of around 2.5 million people living in the city, and a total of about 5.5 million living in the Toronto metropolitan area. Other major cities in Canada include Edmonton, Montréal, Vancouver and Winnipeg.
Canada has a developed free market economy and one of the highest GDPs per capita in the world. The country is home to a large primary sector which includes mining, metal and oil extraction, and logging, important manufacturing exports, a world-leading wheat producer, and is a net exporter of energy. Canada is member of the G7, and has had a free trade agreement with the US since the late 1980s, which later led to the NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement) with US and Mexico in 1994.
There are many reasons to visit Canada. These include the exciting and multi-cultural cities, and outdoor activities such as golf, hiking, and skiing.
