Canadian Culture Culture, Heritage & Arts

What is quintessentially Canadian? If America has apple pie and baseball, Canada has butter tarts and hockey. And the Mounties and maple syrup and really long winters. Canada is the second largest country in the world. Here, it’s all about the great outdoors, where you’ll find Canadians in all four seasons. Like the rest of the country, Alberta has plenty of wide open spaces, from the Canadian Rocky Mountains – where we celebrate winter with a seven-month ski season – to boreal forests, rolling prairies and the mysterious Canadian Badlands. More lakes than any other province for fishing and boating and paddling. Countless parks for camping, hiking, riding and climbing. Come visit, we’d love to show you around.
