Canada is a country in the northern part of North America. Canada is a developed country and has the tenth highest nominal per capita income globally as well as the ninth highest ranking in the Human Development Index. It ranks among the highest in international measurement of government transparency, civil liberties, quality of life, economic freedom, and education.
Canada is a land of vast distances and rich natural beauty. Economically and technologically, and in many other ways, Canada closely resembles its neighbor to the south, although there are significant differences between the two countries. Canada is perfectly happy with its British heritage and many Canadians are proud of this.
The average temperature is typically colder in Canada than in the US and Western Europe, so bring a warm jacket and other winter clothing if visiting between October and April.
