Official Languages

Canada is an officially bilingual country, with French and English both spoken at all government levels. Not all cities and provinces, however, can claim to be bilingual at the popular level. The majority of citizens in Québec are French-speaking, although Montréal can be said to be bilingual, with most citizens speaking both languages fluently. New Brunswick is the only officially bilingual province in Canada, and the rest of the country is largely anglophone, with pockets of French-speaking or bilingual populations.

Culturally, however, Canada is uniquely diverse. Although historically the country was divided between the native aboriginals, the English, and the French, today Canada is a melting pot society made up of hundreds of cultures, each adding their own unique flair to our cultural make-up. Visit any large city and you’ll be able to walk through a Chinatown, Greektown, Little Italy, or Little India. Festivals of many different cultural origins are celebrated in many cities throughout the country. It is said that one can dine at a different ethic restaurant every day of the month in Toronto.
