Canada has the ninth largest economy in the world (measured in US dollars at market exchange rates), is one of the world’s wealthiest nations, and is a member of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and Group of Eight (G8). As with other developed nations, the Canadian economy is dominated by the service industry, which employs about three quarters of Canadians. Canada is unusual among developed countries in the importance of the primary sector, with the logging and oil industries being two of Canada’s most important. Canada also has a sizable manufacturing sector, centered in Central Canada, with the automobile industry especially important.
Canada’s culture is a funny thing. Many people in Canada maintain that Canada doesn’t really have a culture at all, but borrows heavily from French, British and American culture to create own sense of identity. There are aspects in Canadian society that can be said are uniquely Canadian, such as hockey or our entertainment scene. Being polite and courteous to a fault is something that is attributed to Canadians.
