Fun Facts About Canada!

From my own experiences, I find Canada a really great place to live. Here are few interesting facts about Canada that I didn’t know.

  1. Canada’s flag became official on February 15, 1965, that was almost 100 years after it became a country in 1867. Canada has used about 13 different flags before Maple Leaf.
  2. This next fact I find really interesting. In Narcisse Snake Dens (130 km north of Winnipeg) in Mid-April, you can actually see tens of thousands of garter snakes. I have never actually seen it for myself, but I really would like to.
  3. The Canada/USA border is the longest international border in the world.
  4. Canada is the first country to build a UFO landing pad, it was built in Alberta.
  5. The $1 bill was replaced by a coin with the face of a common loon (bird) on one side, Queen Elizabeth on the other.
  6. Basketball was invented by a Canadian coach James Naismith in 1891.
  7. Canada is one of the most educated country in the world. It has over 99% literacy rate and over half of Canadians have college degrees.

  1. Areeba I am TERRIFIED of snakes so I now have goosebumps and feel like they are slithering all over me haha. I would probably die if I came across all those snakes. Interesting facts about Canada and it was good that you cited where they came from. Would be interesting to check into the facts and see how accurate they are and how reliable the source is.
