Welcome to Canada, where everyone is nice. Well... depending on the province, that is! Being nice is a common stereotype in Canada, but you may notice a difference in manners as you travel across the country. Things that are accepted in one part of the country can be different in another. It is the second largest country in the world, so there are naturally a lot of differences from one end to the other! Have you ever wondered which province matches your manners?
Would your manners match the East Coast provinces or the West Coast provinces? Maybe you would fit into the area of the Northwest Territories or the French traditions in Quebec. But if you catch yourself saying sorry, please and thank you more than your neighbors to the south, you don't have too much to worry about! Being polite also has to do with your actions and how you treat people. Whether you believe in karma or not, there's no denying that being a nice person and having great manners will usually pay off! Holding open doors and saying hello to people are only a few ways to exercise your manners.
