About This Quiz

Coast to coast, Canada has a population of just over 37 million very friendly people. That's about 1/9 of the population of the United States, but Canada is actually a larger country by area. That means there's a lot of space you can call home in Canada no matter where you are from Toronto to Iqaluit. It also means we're spread out enough that all the different areas of the country can really have room to grow and evolve into their own unique little microcosms of what it means to be Canada.

Whether you're an east coaster living off seafood and the music of Great Big Sea or you're out on the left coast enjoying a slice of butter chicken pizza in the rain, we're all Canadian just in our own special and unique ways. We're so confident that we can piece together your unique Canadian-ness that if you just tell us a little bit about yourself, we'll be able to pick through that information with our remarkably accurate Canadian algorithms and be able to guess exactly what part of Canada you call home. Want to see if we're right? Grab your poutine and have a go at the quiz, eh?
