Despite being the second largest nation in the world after Russia, Canada is one of the
most sparsely populated. It has a multicultural society that is accommodating to immigrants and
exports a great wealth of natural and intellectual resources. Canada has two official languages,
English and French, which is as a result of its colonial history. Canada is a Commonwealth state,
and obtained self-governance in 1931 and full legislative power in 1982. Canada has the longest
shoreline worldwide and only borders one country, the USA (Britannica).
Ultimately described as individualistic, Canadian culture is however different from that
of the United States. Canadians are more community-oriented and peacemaking (Britannica).
They also have little regard for social classes and show an average strive for personal and
familial success. They, however, show optimism and a tendency to accept future uncertainties
(Hofstede Insights) readily. The country is divided into the French-speaking and Englishspeaking sections, portraying cultures that resemble those of France and Britain respectively.
First Nation cultures of native Indians, Inuit of the Eskimo, Southeast Asian and Latin American
cultures are also represented in the countries multicultural spectrum as well as those from other
European countries (Britannica).

languages such as Yoruba, Igbo, and Hausa are also largely used. Nigeria is a communityoriented country where family relations such as extended family members are closely involved in

and honor (Commisceo Global).
