I love Canada. The reason I love it is that it is one of the most diverse places you will ever visit, and the best part is, all of these diverse people are accepted for who they are. I’ve been to over 15 different countries in my lifetime but I have never been to a place like Canada.

Sure there are stereotypes surrounding Canada, but let me tell you right now my father isn’t a lumberjack. My mother doesn’t make my family pancakes and syrup for breakfast every morning. My brother and I don’t ride sled dogs to school, and we don’t live in an igloo. Canadians don’t live in perpetual winter. We aren’t all fluent in both English and French, though many of us are. Lastly, we don’t all continuously apologize while ice-skating on our way to our moose we planned on riding to the grocery store.

However, we do have a beautiful change in seasons, some places in Canada have 0° Celsius winters and 35° summers. We see rain, hail, sun, and snow sometimes all in the same day. Canada also contains an array of geographical regions including plains, mountains, rolling hills, and even semi-deserts.

Canada also has amazing health care, making keeping up with your regular doctors visits and dentist appointments as affordable as possible.

All of this is amazing and just a few of the reasons I couldn’t imagine myself living anywhere else, but my favorite part of Canada is definitely the acceptance and love that most everyone has. I have traveled to over 15 different countries in my lifetime and none of them have even come close to here. In Canada, it doesn’t matter if you’re African, Caucasian, Sinhalese, Aboriginal, Japanese, Korean, Tibetan, Malayan, Polynesian or any other race, there is a place for you. In Canada, it doesn’t matter if you like pop, country, punk, rock & roll or classical, there are people with similar taste. It doesn’t matter the type of food you like, the sports you’re into, you’re taste in music or art, religion, pigment, race, height, or weight, in Canada you have a place and many people who will accept you for who you are, inside and out.

If you were ever looking for a reason to love Canada, well now you have more than enough.
