In general, Canadians have a reputation of being friendly, unpretentious people who value honesty, sensitivity, empathy and humility in their relationships with friends and strangers, as well as having respect for the privacy and individualism of others. Such values provide the essence of “good manners” in mainstream Canadian society.
Canadians enjoy many outdoor activities such as camping, cycling, canoeing, kayaking and hiking. Some of the top-rated hiking trails from around the world are found in Canada, including the Long Traverse in Newfoundland, Banff National Park in Alberta, and the West Coast Trail in British Columbia.
And of course, Canadians love their sports — both playing and watching them. Popular sports include ice hockey, figure skating, bowling, football, soccer, baseball and curling. You can’t get any more Canadian than curling!
Canadians also enjoy listening to music in concert settings, and playing musical instruments. Some of the most popular musical instruments are the guitar, piano and the violin.
Some of the most famous contemporary musicians have come from Canada. For example, Bryan Adams, Justin Bieber, Celine Dion, Shania Twain and more.
