Canada's vastness is perhaps best personified by its land border with the United States, which at 8,891 kilometres in length is the longest international border in the world.
Indeed, Canada's 10 provinces and three territories boast a spectacular array of landscapes which run the gamut from including untouched coastlines, dense forests and snow-capped mountain ranges, to bustling cosmopolitan cities like Toronto and Montreal.
Canada’s diversity is reflected in its cosmopolitan make-up, with plenty of Inuit, European and Asian descendants commingling with Canucks to create one of the most multicultural countries in the world. Ontario's long history as a French-speaking province is also evident in the fact that the nation is official bilingual.
