About Canada

Canada was first settled by indigenous Indian peoples, mostly Eskimos, thousands of years ago. The first European known to reach Canadian shores  was an Italian named John Cabot. It was the French, however, who settled most of Canada, but lost a great portion of their new territory to the English. In 1867, Canada gained a self-government, but still retains their ties to England as a member of their Commonwealth. Today Canada is often ranked as one of the top places in the world to live, and offers its residents a high quality of life. Perhaps this is one of the reasons why, despite the cold temperatures, Canadians are known to be such friendly people.
