CANADIAN CULTURE IS SOMETHING TO SEE TO BELIEVE
The Freedoms of Canada
Canadians are blessed with freedoms that many countries in the world do not have.
If you're a Canadian citizen, your rights include:
Canadian Heritage - This website promotes understanding of Canadian citizenship values. Provides information on multiculturalism, our official languages and Canadian sports, arts and heritage.
Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) Offices Abroad - This is a listing compiled by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada of missions abroad that process immigration applications.
Cultural Access Pass for New Citizens - As a new Canadian citizen, you can use this pass to visit many cultural institutions in your region for free. This program was launched by the Institute for Canadian Citizenship.

An Average Canadian Week
Most Canadians work Monday to Friday, approximately eight hours daily. Schools often start earlier in the day and finish earlier as well, especially elementary and secondary schools.
A typical morning involves parents getting their children ready for school and having breakfast.
Upon their return home, families will usually have dinner between 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. and then take part in family activities before the children go to bed.
A Canadian school year lasts from the beginning of September to the end of June, with a summer break in July and August. You can learn about some of the Canadian holidays via this Government of Canada website.
On weekends, families relax, go to church and complete tasks they were unable to do during the week: laundry, home projects, maintenance, and take part in community activities.
What do Canadian families do for fun?
There's so much to do in Canada - especially in and around Strathroy, Ontario. Your family can go to a park, go on a hike, spend an afternoon at the splash pad, watch a baseball game, visit a museum in Toronto, tour a vineyard in Niagara-on-the-Lake, learn a sport, walk to the mall, borrow a book from a library, go for a car ride in the countryside, let the kids go crazy at Storybook Gardens, learn about our past at Fanshawe Pioneer Village and so much more.
