Canada is a North American Country, where early Indigenous people lived off the land. Later colonized by the British and French, Canada was founded as a country on July 1, 1867. Canada’s landscape is vast and is the second largest country by total area. Known today to be one of the most ethnically and culturally diverse countries. The word Canada has been translated to mean “village” or “settlement” in St. Lawrence Iroquoians’ language.
