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.
