About This Quiz

Canada is the second-largest country in the world by area, falling just shy of Russia. It's a vast place, and that means it has a great range of diversity. The people of the Maritime provinces, like Newfoundland and Prince Edward Island, don't necessarily have a ton in common with those who live on the other side of the country on Vancouver Island. Residents of Quebec have a strong French heritage, while the residents of Manitoba and Alberta are very much like what you might find in Texas or Wyoming. The result of all these cultural variations is that Canada has a lot of unique Canadian things. French Canadian poutine and tourtieres, maple syrup cotton candy, all-dressed chips and "the Littlest Hobo" are just a few things by which someone with no knowledge of Canada would be utterly baffled. But what about you? Have you ever tried a butter tart? Do you own a Roots brand sweater? Have you enjoyed your toast with a little Saskatoon berry jam on it, or maybe a refreshing Crush cream soda alongside a big bowl of Kraft Dinner? 

However much or little of Canada's weirdness you've experienced, we bet we can guess where you're from based on your answers! Take the quiz and see!
