About This Quiz

The rest of the world sometimes pigeonholes Canada as simply a moose-infested forest that sprawls from sea to shining sea, a place that’s known as much for its politeness as its politics. But the reality is that Canada is a booming, bustling place with a rich history and plenty of economic might and lot of political pull. What do you really know about the land of maple leaves and beavers in this fascinating quiz?

As the crown of North America, Canada is indeed filled with forests. It is, in fact, one of the most heavily forested areas on the planet, and those woods are filled with all manner of important wildlife, from bears, to wolves, to elk and a whole lot more. The country is also strewn with many thousands of lakes, as well as rugged coastlines. What do you know about the landscapes and layout of this country?

Canada doesn’t have states. Instead, it is broken into small areas called provinces, as well as a handful of territories. These provinces are incredibly varied in their people and landscape.

Canada is a varied blend of big-city life and backwater isolation. Grab your pancakes and maple syrup and settle in with this Canadian quiz — we’ll see how much you really know about America’s northern neighbor!
