The Rich Heritage and Culture of Canada Attracts Tourist to The Country

by Steve Smith writer

The famous quote -"Culture is the process by which a person becomes all that they were created capable of being" by the great philosopher Thomas Carlyle holds true in case of Canada. The culture of the country is a mixed blend of European, British and French traditions. The migration of the people from different countries is the result for the origin of the Aboriginal people in the country. Tourists visiting the place are often mesmerized by the hospitality with which they are welcomed.

With a total population of 33 lacs, Canada is home to people from multiple origins. British, American, African, Indian, American people from many ethnic groups can be found here. The people of this country are polite, tolerant and respect the traditional beliefs of each person. Their language mainly constitutes English and French, but other than these two languages, Punjabi, Spanish, Italian and Arabic are also spoken by a significant part of the population. Another important reason why a large number of people reside here is due to the reason that it has the lowest number of crime rates in comparison to any other country.

Before visiting Canada and selecting any Canada holiday packages there are some cultural etiquettes that one must know about. The most common form of greeting in the country is handshake and it must be accompanied by a smile. Before referring anyone by his or her first name you should always seek the permission of the person. If you have any Canadian Friends there then you can greet him or her with a light kiss on the cheek.

The best time to visit the country is between June and August. Though the temperature remains warm here at this point of time but it is quite pleasant here making it suitable for indulging in a lot of activities such as hiking and swimming. The temperature of the place normally varies between 14 degrees to 28 degrees.

The culture of a country is incomplete without its literature. Canadian Literature is immensely influenced by Britain and France. Previously, literature was primarily focused on nature and frontier life but it was from the mid 20th century when authors expressed their views separately thus giving a different turn to the literature. Some of the notable writers of this country are Yann Martel, Michael Ondaatje and Margaret Atwood. All of them have own the Man Booker Prize for their outstanding contribution in the field of literature.

Canadian Music has a huge influence in shaping up the country's culture. Music traces its roots from the American Culture. In fact, Canadian Rock is hugely popular among the youths of the country.  Be it the performing arts centers, theatres, conservatories or the church halls; one can get to hear the traditional music at all these places, which is encompasses an influence from the Western and European Music. The country has given birth to some of the most renowned singers and musicians in the present day world such as the current youth sensation Justin Bieber and the all time favorite of music lovers, Bryan Adams.
