Canada is not only one of the biggest countries in the world but also one of the richest in terms of both wealth and resources. Canada’s ten provinces and three territories stretch from the Atlantic to the Pacific and northward into the Arctic Ocean, covering almost 10 million square kilometers. It is a federal parliamentary democracy and a constitutional monarchy at the same time, one of the few countries on the planet to be organized this way.
It is also one of the world’s most ethnically diverse and multicultural nations, being the product of large-scale immigration from pretty much all countries around the world. For your consideration, we put together ten very interesting facts about Canada most of you probably didn’t know.

Many people don’t know this but Canada’s forests make up for 10% of the world’s total forest area. As a matter of fact, nearly half of Canada’s land mas is covered with trees. You see, much of Canada is very desolate and although habitable, so remote that people won’t even consider living there. On a related note, the warmest month in Canada is July when temperatures can reach 37.9 degrees Celsius while for most of the year, the overall temperature is a lot colder than that.
