Canada is the second largest country in the world. Bordered by the USA to the south and to the northwest.


Canada is a bilingual country. Some speakers are fluent in English, some are fluent in French (especially in the province of Quebec), and some speak both. The Québécois dialect differs from the French spoken in France, but for the purposes of the Geni, regular French is close enough.

Internet availability

High-speed Internet is available in most locations, and is used about as frequently as in the US.
