As Canadians, we have a whole lot of pride for our country. And why shouldn't we? We have an immense amount of things that make this country great, and it's the perfect time to celebrate them.\nIn 2017, we had a huge nation-wide blowout for our country's 150th birthday, and it was seriously impressive. It was amazing to see Canucks come together and embrace the similarities and differences that make Canada a great, wholesome country admired by the rest of the world.\nHowever, there are lots of stereotypes surrounding our country. Although there are tons of amazing things about Canada, there are also some things that aren't so great.\nBest: We're An Officially Bilingual Country\nView this post on Instagram #bilingual #bilingualcanada #bilingualpride A post shared by Ron Zander Williams (@ron_zander_vfx) on Dec 4, 2016 at 1:20am PST\nQuebec is a French-speaking province, New Brunswick and the Territories are considered bilingual provinces, and the rest of Canada is English-speaking. This makes us a completely unique country!\nAll of our federal government across the country is required to be bilingual in order to serve both English- and French-speaking citizens. It's amazing that two completely different languages are so widely accepted across our nation!\nWorst: Less Than Half The Population Actually Speaks French\nView this post on Instagram We're finally "home" after thousands of kilometres of driving... Guelph all the way to Tofino BC and back! A while back I made a comment about how Manitoba's sign was the most sad looking sign we have seen... Only to come home to this sad piece of work... By far the worst, homeliest looking welcome sign we have seen. Not cool Ontario. Not cool. #welcometoontario #transcanadahighway #yourstodiscover @discoverontario @stpeterjessica A post shared by Jelisa St.Peter (@jelisalyn89) on Jul 18, 2016 at 7:43pm PDT\nAlthough the government may be required to speak French, the rest of Canada is not. Aside from Quebec, New Brunswick and the Territories, you probably won't find many people, if any, speaking French.\nFrench is required in most of the school systems up to a certain age, so at least some of the English-speaking provinces learn at least a basic level of French, but we really dropped the ball on that one.\nBest: The Nature\nView this post on Instagram I want to be my own boss but I have no idea where to start I have an online business but its not bringing in the income I don’t want to be salesy Who am I to do this work All my questions a year ago…Trust me I’ve been there If its been placed on your heart you must answer the call You CAN have it ALL: Travel Abundance Freedom Impact Family Time But you must be willing to show up and do the work This is the reason I’ve created the BECOME MAGNETIC MASTERMIND To empower women to share their message To create the impact And to grow a business that allows them to live out their desires The Mastermind Includes: ∆ 4 months with this sister ∆ 8 group coaching calls ∆ 1, 1:1 Call with me ∆ Access to an incredible sisterhood ∆ Access to tons of business resources: client contracts, sales page formula, email funnel formula, discovery call formula & more ∆ Access to me via email/voice message ✨THERE ARE ONLY 6 SPOTS ✨ & Applications are already rolling in 💃🏻 from some incredible ladies mind you Hop to the link in my bio or shoot me a DM right meow if you want in or have questions . . . . . #Hersuccess #girlcode #calledtocreate #bizcoach #businesstips #mindsetcoach #spiritualentrepreneur #onlinebusinesscoach #onlinecoach #igniteyourfire #lifecoach #bossbabes A post shared by Dietitian | Spiritual Coach (@shelby.set.free) on May 2, 2019 at 4:01pm PDT\nNatural splendour here really is unparalleled. Each province is mostly untouched by big bustling cities, so they're bursting with drop-dead gorgeous gems.\nIn fact, there are over 40 national parks in Canada now, making this country's natural ecosystems some of the most protected in the world!\nWorst: Each Province Is Huge And Spread Out\nView this post on Instagram Summers in Sask... What more can I say?!❤️ 😍 #cityofbridges #yxe #explore_canada #summernights #thatskytho #explorecanada #canadagraphers #natgeofcanada #exploresaskprairie #exploresaskparks #yesvisitsaskatoon A post shared by Jessica Brown (@adventuresintheeveryday) on Aug 4, 2017 at 2:34pm PDT\nThat may not actually sound like a bad thing, but if you're trying to drive from one province to the next, you'll realize just how inconvenient it really is. Driving from Toronto to Winnipeg, for example, will take you over 20 hours!\nThat's almost a full day of travelling, crammed in a car, just to get from one province to another.\nBest: We're Incredibly Friendly Here\nView this post on Instagram 😅We accidently walked in front of this family's picture, so we did a fun photo bomb one too😁 #sweetfamily #photofun #liladventures #friendlyCanadians #LetsGoBlueJays A post shared by Monarch (@monarchmariposa) on Aug 25, 2018 at 12:31pm PDT\nCanadians are known for being super friendly and polite, and that's totally something to be proud of. We love tourists coming to explore our country, so of course we'll be welcoming!\nThere's definitely no such thing as being too friendly, so we should keep that up!\nWorst: We Say Sorry Every 5 Seconds\nView this post on Instagram Working on some 2.25" pinbacks #SorryImCanadian #cudtom #handmade #pinbacks #canadian A post shared by BayleafButtons / Megan (@bayleafbuttons) on Jul 10, 2013 at 6:28pm PDT\nYeah.. we definitely do this, sorry. It's something that comes along with having all that politeness in our blood that just makes us want to apologize for everything.\nWe even apologize for things that weren't even our fault. I swear, if someone hit me with their car, I'd probably say sorry to them... #sorrynotsorry.\nBest: We Have Universal Healthcare\nView this post on Instagram In anticipation of #nursesweek2019 approaching, we couldn't wait to get an early start to singing our praises of the nurses we love so much here at Gwinnett Medical Center. They truly are difference makers and help change lives everyday. Who's a nurse you're celebrating? #healthcare #nursesofinstagram #rns #rnsofinstagram #scrubs # gmc #youbelonghere #nursesrule #gwinnettmedicalcenter #gwinnett #nurseschangelives A post shared by GMC Careers (@gmcjobs) on May 3, 2019 at 11:00am PDT\nIt's pretty convenient for us Canadians that we don't have to pay thousands of dollars when we get into an accident or fall ill like Americans do. Although our healthcare isn't necessarily "free" since we pay for it through our taxes every year, it still makes a huge difference.\nOur country cares enough to provide us with consistent healthcare, so we can be prepared in case we ever need it in the future.\nWorst: The ER Wait Times Are Sooo Long\nView this post on Instagram #hospitalwaits#notgettingsick A post shared by Kiara Jade (@jade.kiara) on Aug 24, 2016 at 3:23am PDT\nAlthough our healthcare system is pretty amazing, it has some real downfalls, especially when it comes to wait times in the ER. You could come in with a serious injury and you'd probably still have to wait at least a few hours to see a doctor.\nThat's kind of insane, but since no one actually has to pay to see a doctor, people end up going to the hospital pretty frequently (aka longer wait times!).\nBest: Our Summers\nView this post on Instagram The best 3 doctors I know are fresh air, sunshine and water. #canadiansummers ☀️💦 A post shared by Beata Rydyger, BSc, RHN (@beatarydyger) on Feb 8, 2019 at 9:46am PST\nSummers in Canada are AMAZING! The weather is warm and the sun is shining, always making it the perfect time to go out and explore all the wonderful nature near you!\nYou can spend your Canadian summers camping, hiking, boating, or any and all outdoor activities you can think of. Even hitting up a nice terasse and sharing a few cocktails with friends!\nWorst: Our Winters\nView this post on Instagram Meanwhile in Alberta. On a plus side, I haven't seen any mosquitoes yet. 😎 #winteriscoming #meanwhileincanada #meanwhileinalberta #aintnoway #dontstopmenow #yycnow #winter #springincanada #yycbuzz #yycblogger #yolo #snow #funny #canadianwinters #curiositycalgary 😁 @meanwhileincanada1 @meanwhileinalberta A post shared by K a s i a || [Green]ster (@thegreensterway) on Apr 27, 2019 at 7:22pm PDT\nYup, every Canadian knows how bad our winters can get. Unless you're lucky enough to live on the West Coast, you're usually getting a sh*t ton of snow, and the temperature is going down to AT LEAST -20 degrees.\nAlthough it can be really beautiful here in the winter at some points, the frigid cold and piles of snow crashing down on us every day get old real quick.\nBest: Our Prime Minister Is Super Hot\nView this post on Instagram The Maison des Sourds in Papineau offers housing, meals, and services to the deaf community in Montreal. Thanks for the important work you do & for welcoming me yesterday - and even teaching me a bit of sign language! 🇨🇦 La Maison des Sourds à Papineau offre logements, repas et services à la communauté sourde de Montréal. Je vous remercie du travail important que vous faites, de votre accueil hier – et même de m’avoir enseigné un peu de langage gestuel! A post shared by Justin Trudeau (@justinpjtrudeau) on Feb 2, 2019 at 7:24am PST\nWe're all very proud of how much of a steamboat our Prime Minister is. I mean, just look at him. He's intelligent, gorgeous, AND he runs an entire country! That's the total package, if you ask me.\nWorst: He Makes Some Questionable Political Decisions\nView this post on Instagram Over 900,000 more jobs since 2015 ✅ Our plan to invest in Canadians is working: more people have good jobs, unemployment is at a historic low, and conditions to #InvestInCanada have never been better. 🇨🇦 Plus de 900 000 nouveaux emplois depuis 2015 ✅ Notre plan d'investissement dans les Canadiens fonctionne : plus de gens ont de bons emplois, le taux de chômage est à un creux historique et les conditions pour #InvestirAuCanada n'ont jamais été meilleures. A post shared by Justin Trudeau (@justinpjtrudeau) on Apr 23, 2019 at 9:23am PDT\nAfter he appeared on a 2017 Rolling Stones cover with the subtitle "Why Can't He Be Our President?" Americans and Canadians alike voiced their opinions, starting controversy and discussion over some of his political decisions.\nAlthough he may be hot, not all of his political moves have exactly been beneficial to our country. But seriously, guys, it could be WAY worse!\nBest: We Have Affordable Education\nView this post on Instagram Pce Montreal, it's been real ✌🏼 🧀🚨 cheesiness alert 🚨🧀: These last few weeks have given me a chance to reflect on the vast growth I've experienced here at McGill, both academically and personally. Both the challenges and triumphs have helped me better understand what makes me tick, enabling me to be more authentically myself and ultimately be the happiest I've ever been. Huge shoutout to everyone who's been along for the ride, namely my dusty roommate @liammather, my fellow band geeks (@symphonicclub), and everyone in biology (esp. @mbsumcgill). All of you have contributed to my fond memories of my time at McGill and in Montreal. While sad to leave, I'm super excited to be starting a Master's in Molecular Genetics at University of Toronto and even more excited to finally be reunited with my @a_mazz_ing for what I'm expecting to be 2 very fun and very gay years as roommates. To all my montréalais friends, I'll be back in no time! A post shared by Jonathan Palozzi (@j.palozzi) on Jul 31, 2017 at 11:05am PDT\nThe cost of university has become pretty affordable for students pursuing a post-secondary education in Canada. Instead of paying $20,000 to $60,000 like they do in the U.S., we usually only pay around $3,000 to $10,000 annually.\nThat's a pretty good deal, if you ask me. We also have some of the best universities in North America!\nWorst: There's No Jobs\nView this post on Instagram Want to see what I've been up to?? Head on over to @d.mclean.contracting These guys are contractors based in Northern Alberta.. and I've spent a few days hanging out on a few of their job sites getting concrete and saw dust (aka. 'man glitter'.. or so they tell me) on my boots.. Pretty fun to see my work somewhere other than my own insta page!

Problem is, now a university degree doesn't really mean much in the job market because it seems like everyone has one.\nSo, even though you slaved away for four years to earn your university degree, it might be harder than you think to find a well-paying job after graduation.\nBest: We're Strong and Free!\nView this post on Instagram Yes! It’s Friday. A post shared by mcphoto99 (@mcphoto99) on Aug 3, 2018 at 9:43am PDT\nThere's lots of equally good and bad things about this country, but let's just focus on the good ones for now because having pride for your country is so important!
