Canada is a country of diverse geography, and there is much to experience in its great outdoors: from the lush coastline of British Columbia, the majestic Rocky Mountains of Alberta, the big skies of the prairies, to the 'maple sugar country' in the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence and the rugged hills and picturesque coastline of the Atlantic provinces.
Canada has a variety of tourist destinations. There are many museums, seasonal festivals, and exciting nightlife that each province and territory has to offer. Canada also has a beautiful countryside which means that most outdoor recreational activities are very popular here, whether it be skiing, cycling, hiking, camping, sightseeing, or even ice sailing.
There are many climatic variations in Canada, ranging from the permanently frozen ice caps north of the 70th parallel to the lush vegetation of British Columbia's west coast. On the whole, however, Canada has four very distinct seasons, particularly in the more populated regions along the US border. Daytime summer temperatures can rise to 35°C and higher, while lows of -25°C are not uncommon in winter. More moderate temperatures are the norm in spring and fall.
As a country of immigrants, Canada has both a tradition and policy of encouraging multicultural diversity.
Almost all of the world's ethnic groups are represented in Canada. This brings to Canada the most ethnic foods and recreational activities associated with specific cultures. Clubs, informal clubs and associations representing a multitude of ethnic backgrounds are also easily accessible.

Education is a provincial responsibility under the Canadian constitution, which means there are significant differences between the education systems of the different provinces. However, standards across the country are uniformly high.
