1. "Eh": A commonly used Canadian interjection to indicate that you want agreement or confirmation. It is akin to the British saying "innit". 2. Thanksgiving in Canada: It's celebrated in October, not in November as in the United States. It's a holiday that many British people aren't aware of. 3. The world's longest coastline: Canada has the longest coastline of any country in the world, stretching over 202,080 km or 125,567 miles. 4. Double Double: A Canadian phrase referencing how you'd like your coffee - with two creams and two sugars. It's a term often used at Tim Hortons, a popular Canadian coffee shop. 5. The Loonie and the Toonie: This refers to Canadian $1 and $2 coins. The loonie is named after the bird depicted on the coin and 'Toonie' is a portmanteau of 'two' and 'loonie'. 6. Boxing Day: While the UK also has Boxing Day, in Canada the day after Christmas is essentially another Black Friday with significant sales in most retail stores across the country. 7. Poutine: This is a popular Canadian dish made of fries, cheese curds, and gravy. While it's becoming more popular internationally, it's not as widely recognised in the UK. 8. The word Chesterfield: In Canada, this is another term for a sofa or couch. Most British people would not be familiar with this usage. 9. Canada has two official languages: Both English and French are official languages in Canada. This means that every government service, legal document, and product label must be provided in both languages. 10. Canada’s national animal is the Beaver: This might be surprising as many might assume it’s a moose or a bear. The beaver was chosen because it represents the fur trade, a big part of Canada's history.
