Reasons to go:
Iconic links: there are more Canadians in the world of showbiz than people realise. In music a few of the biggest names include Neil Young, Celine Dion and of course, Justin Bieber, while in film you have the likes of Jim Carey, Kim Cattrall, and the perfect specimen that is Ryan Gosling.

Lifestyle: Canadians are the epitome of ‘chilled’, with a refreshing attitude towards free time that involves being active. When they come home from school you won’t find them on Facebook, but outside with their bikes or playing music with friends.

Outdoor/sports opportunities: whether culture-specific (ice-hockey, lacrosse, baseball, longboarding), or from the landscape (hiking, climbing, canoeing, white-water rafting, skiing), Canada has loads to offer all year round.

Range of wildlife: Have you ever seen an elk, a moose, black bear, polar bear, or whale..?

 Variety of landscapes: the presence of lakes, mountains, flat plains, semi-desert, youthful cities and ocean means you’ll experience so much geographical diversity within one country.
