Canada is known as the Great White North or that place above the United States of America. However, in actuallity we have our own distinct cultures and traditions. Like everything else in this world, our culture is very complicated so I will try to keep this page as organized as possible.

First things first though, you should learn our National Anthem.

The music was originally composed by Calixa Lavallée in 1880 with French lyrics by Adolphe-Basile Routhier. Numerous English versions were proposed but the one that finally gained wide acceptance was by R. Stanley Weir in 1908. Weir's lyrics were modified slightly and became the official lyrics on July 1, 1980.

O Canada! Terre de nos aïeux,
Ton front est ceint de fleurons glorieux!
Car ton bras sait porter l'épée
Il sait porter la croix!
Ton histoire est une épopée
Des plus brillants exploits
Et ta valeur, de foi trempée
Protégera nos foyers et nos droits,
Protégera nos foyers et nos droits.
O Canada! Our home and native land
True patriot love in all thy sons command.
With glowing hearts we see the rise
The True North strong and free,
From far and wide, O Canada
We stand on guard for thee.
God keep our land glorious and free
O Canada we stand on guard for thee,
O Canada we stand on guard for thee.

To learn some more about our anthem look at my Canadian Facts Page or head over to one of the following locations:
