About This Quiz

Canada is a splendid land full of splendid people, and it's 100% possible one of those people is you.  There's a lot of good stuff going on in the Great White North that's worth celebrating.  Canadians are renowned for being polite people, there's a Tim Horton's every 50 feet or so and tons of life-changing innovations like insulin have started out in Canada. Not to mention the breathtaking scenery, diverse wildlife, and remarkable cuisine.  Canadians invented poutine.  It's fries with cheese curds and gravy.  That's the great innovation in French fry history.

Did you know that we can actually determine if you're Canadian or not based entirely on how you respond to some simple yes or no questions?  It's true! Our team of highly skilled geographical prognosticators will go over every single yes or no response and cross-reference it against a database of moose, maple syrup and all-dressed potato chips to determine with an eerie degree of accuracy just how close you are to Saskatoon!  Answer these yes or no questions honestly and we'll get to your inner Canuck in no time!
