Canada is home to a population of 39 million people as well as some of the world’s most iconic landmarks. These include Niagara Falls, the majestic Rockies Mountains, as well as world famous city landmarks such as the CN Tower.

Niagara Falls, the Rockies mountains, or world famous landmarks like the CN Tower, are amongst the many feats that Canada is #HomeTo. With 39 million people calling the country home, we took a look at what else the country is famous for.

#HomeTo – The iconic Niagara Falls

Niagara Falls is one of the most breathtaking natural wonders in the world. Located between the New York and Canada border, the falls consist of three main sections, the Horseshoe Falls, the American Falls, and the Bridal Veil Falls. The Horseshoe Falls is the most impressive and draws most visitors with its curved shape. The force of water is truly astonishing, as millions of gallons rush through the falls every second. Whether its viewed from the observation decks, the thrilling boat ride, or in the air during a helicopter, Niagara Falls leaves a mark on whoever is lucky enough to witness it. 

#HomeTo – The majestic Rockies

The Rockies are a majestic mountain range stretching from Canada down to the United States. The rugged cliffs and the snow-capped summits offer a mesmerizing view. The Rockies offer amazing landscape views including deep valleys, clear lakes, and rivers. It’s a popular spot for adventurers and nature enthusiasts who love hikes, mountain climbs, and scenic drives along winding roads. The Rockies are also home to diverse wildlife, from bears and elk to soaring eagles in the sky.

#HomeTo - The Canadian Moose

The moose is a popular symbol for Canada and is known for its incredible size and enormous antlers. Canada has a massive population of approximately 830,000 Moose, which is the largest population of moose in the world. The moose is a huge animal with males weighing an average of 881 lbs (400kg) and females weighing an average of 771 lbs (350kg). Clocking up to 35mph, although not as fast as the Ding app, Canadian Moose are a fast animal! Moose shed their antlers every winter between mid-November and early March, on average it takes a moose around 2 to 3 months to grow a new pair. The moose is an important animal for the Canadian culture as well as for the forest ecosystem.

#HomeTo – Delicious Maple Syrup

Maple Syrup has been a staple in Canadian cuisine for a long period of time and is popular all around the world today, primarily used on Pancakes and waffles. Canada is known to produce 85 percent of the world’s maple syrup supply which is really important for the economy of Canada. It takes a lot of sap from a maple tree to make the syrup we all love, in fact, it takes 40 gallons of maple sap to just make 1 gallon of Syrup. As we know, maple syrup is loved across the world, and it is exported from Canada to approximately 50 countries, with the U.S. being the primary importer.

#HomeTo – Ice Hockey

Ice hockey is Canada’s most dominant sport by far as Canada is known to be the birthplace of the sport with Canadians being the most passionate ice hockey fans. The sport was invented in Montreal in 1875 and from then on it became a staple in most households across the country. Canada has their own hockey league known as the Canadian Hockey League which is one of the largest hockey leagues along with the NHL (the national hockey league) which started off with 4 Canadian teams but then expanded out into the U.S. forming the National League.
