Before showing you the different locations that you must visit when in Canada, I will give you a brief introduction on the country.

WHAT? WHERE? HOW?

Being the world’s second largest country by total area and the fourth-largest country by land area, Canada was previously inhabited by various Aboriginal tribes before the European colonised the area.

Towards the end of the 15th century British and French established few colonies along the Atlantic coast. The native tribes fought against the European conquerors, who invaded their lands and destroyed their homes – same exact story we heard for South America, Africa and all the other colonised countries.

Finally in the 18th century the United Kingdom managed to gain the northern territories, which included in North America and Canada. Indeed, Canada was – and still is – a member-state of the Commonwealth.

The country’s capital city is Ottawa, which is located in Ontario, and the largest city is Toronto, also situated in Ontario.
