About This Quiz

On July 1st, 1867, Canada officially became a country and it never looked back. What was once just Upper Canada and Lower Canada has expanded to 10 provinces and three territories that offer a diverse range of climates, wildlife, cuisine and culture. It's a huge swath of land, and there's likely something to appeal to just about everyone if you look hard enough. But just like not everyone enjoys pizza, if you can believe it, not everyone is cut out for life in the Great White North. Maybe hockey isn't your thing. Maybe Tim Hortons makes you wince. Maybe you have no idea how to manage voting in an election in which six different parties are running. There's definitely more than meets the eye going on in Canada.

Still, you can't know if you belong in Canada until you find out. So how will you find out? What can you do to learn the ropes and decide for yourself if you could live in Canada or not? No need to pack up and head for Saskatoon just yet. You can start by taking this quiz and see how well you might fit in. Maybe you'll find a new home, eh? Take the quiz and find out!
