Canadian culture is a term that explains the artistic, musical, literary, culinary, political and social elements that are representative of Canada and Canadians, not only to its own population but people all over the world. Canadian culture has historically been influenced by European culture and traditions, especially British and French, and by its own indigenous cultures. Over time, elements of the cultures of Canadian immigrant populations have become incorporated into mainstream Canadian culture. It has subsequently been influenced by American culture because of its shared language, proximity and migration between the two countries.
The country is highly diverse in culture, with more than 200 ethnic origins. There are two major linguistic groups and two generally accepted languages, English and French. In the year 2006, over 57 percent of the population submitted English as their first language and almost 22 percent submitted French as their first language. The wide majority of the French speaking people in Canada live in Quebec, where at least 79 percent have French as their mother tongue. Canada is just a place to be.
