Nigttime view of Toronto, Ontario.

Growing up a stone's throw from Canada, I pretty much took the country for granted, considering it a large extension of the United States. As I saw it back in my childhood, the people were just like us, the landscape wasn't that different from ours and the food, well, unless you count poutine, it wasn't anything that I hadn't seen before. As I matured and explored the country, however, my views changed. I discovered Canadians are, in fact, some of the nicest people in world. And, yes, the landscape is quite different -- take Nunavut, Canada's newest territory, for example. A remote area in the country's north, its capital Iqaluit is the only Canadian capital that can be reached just by air.  

The prime business destination in Canada is Toronto, even though plenty of business is conducted in Montreal, Vancouver, Ottawa and numerous other Canadian cities. The cosmopolitan hub of Canada, Toronto has a population of more than three million people. Filled with parks, gardens and village-style communities, the city is a vibrant mosaic of over 70 cultures celebrating their heritage with colorful festivals and bustling markets. Toronto is home to four huge convention centers and the city's thousands of shops and restaurants will keep you busy for days.

Over in British Columbia on the west coast, visitors can sightsee along winding mountain trails or bike through Vancouver’s famous Stanley Park. Wildlife spotters can take a whale watching tour off B.C.’s Pacific coast, or head north to see grizzly bears and wolves. And you can't beat the skiing in British Columbia, which is home to the highest vertical drop in North America.  

From Nova Scotia's towering seaside cliffs to Saskatchewan's vast grasslands to the old-world charm of Quebec, Canada is a whole world waiting to be discovered...just north of the border!
