This section of our reporting explores the culture across Canada and how this is represented within our public policy and government.
There is no single Canadian culture, but rather a rich tapestry of diverse customs and traditions that have been woven together over the centuries. Canada is home to many different ethnic groups, each with their own unique heritage. As a result, Canadian culture is constantly evolving, adapted to the ever-changing demographics of our country. Across the provinces, there are also significant regional differences in culture. In Quebec, for example, French is the predominant language and many of the customs and traditions have roots in French culture. In contrast, English Canadian culture has been heavily influenced by the British.
These differing cultural traditions help to make Canada a truly dynamic and vibrant country.
