Canada is often referred to as a cultural mosaic, built by a society that respects and celebrates the cultures of many countries from around the world. With one of the highest per capita immigration rates in the world, many new Canadian immigrants are attracted to major urban areas such as Toronto, Vancouver, or Montreal.
Canada occupies most of North America, sharing borders with the United States to the south, as well as the state of Alaska to the northwest. Stretching from the Atlantic Ocean in the east, to the Pacific Ocean in the west, Canada is the second largest land mass in the world. Because of a relatively low population, new immigrants can expect lots of open spaces and beautiful, vast parkland in all 10 provinces and 3 territories.
