20+ Photos That Show What It’s Like to Live in Canada

Many people have a very clear image of Canada. Hockey arenas across the country, Tim Hortons on every corner instead of Starbucks, maple syrup with any meal, reindeer, geese, and very, very cold weather (in contrast to the warm friendliness of the locals, who don’t skimp on courtesy). However, being such a vast territory, the second-largest country in the world, it offers an incredibly extensive range of landscapes and experiences.

Bright Side doesn’t want you to have a lackluster impression of this nation, so we put together a series of images that could have only been taken by real Canadians.
