Canada

Canada is a democratic country in the northern portion of North America comprised of 10 provinces and three territories reaching from the Atlantic to Pacific oceans and encompassing 9.98 million square kilometres (3.85 million square miles). Most of this land is sub-arctic to arctic in climate, but the southern areas of some provinces are warm enough for agriculture. The vast majority of Canadians live in urban areas, such as Ottawa, Toronto, Montreal, Winnipeg and Vancouver. Total population is approximately 35 million. Canada shares a border, the world's longest, with the United States.
