You can read a lot of information about how to live in Canada, but you can feel all the nuances of Canadian life only by living in this country. Canadians have their own mentality, which is very different from the Russian way of life. Therefore, our compatriots do not feel very comfortable at first.

Canada has a very high standard of living, comparable to that in Germany. This also affects society. Canadians are law-abiding people, they respect and abide by the established rules and regulations. They consider it in the order of things, if the neighbor reports to the police about any offenses of the neighbor, for example, a violation of traffic rules, or if the neighbor has unacceptable expenses that exceed income. Canadians will not break the law, even if it promises big profits.

An interesting feature of Canada is the way we dress. Unlike Russian girls, who may have evening dresses in their daily clothes, mini-skirts and provocative outfits are rarely found in the wardrobe of Canadian women. The reason may be their religiosity. Almost all Canadians profess some kind of religion, and it takes an important place in their lives. Often, even at the hospital or when applying for a visa, they may ask about which local church you are a member of. Therefore, the clothes of the inhabitants of Canada are simple and modest.

In Canada, it is impossible to tell by the clothes of the inhabitants what social class a person belongs to. Both well-to-do people and employees with modest incomes wear the same clothes. The difference may be in the cost of things, but not everyone can distinguish a branded thing. The same goes for cars, here is the same story: Canadians do not drive prestigious cars, their models are the simplest. But almost every adult family member has a car.


Unlike Russia and CIS countries, in Canada there is no concept of registration and registration, so all citizens of the country can freely move from one city to another. All Canadian cities have a common design principle. Any city in the country has its own downtown (center), surrounded by sleeping areas. The business and historical part of the city is located in downtown, there are huge skyscrapers with wealthy citizens living in them, as well as many shopping centers, cafes, restaurants, shops, theaters and other cultural institutions. This makes it very different from the suburb. The peculiarity of such centers is that the day begins very early in them, however, life dies down by six o'clock in the evening. By this time, everything is closed, only theaters and restaurants work. Basically, by the evening, people leave the center en masse, leaving for sleeping areas where the bulk of the city's population lives.

The dormitory areas are mostly one-story and two-story houses. Any residential area has its own shops, cafes, restaurants, fitness centers and everything that is necessary for a normal existence. Districts differ in geographic location, there are areas with more affluent residents living in expensive houses, and there are areas with inexpensive houses in which people with low incomes live. Canadians usually buy houses on credit, and sometimes pay back over several generations.

Canadians are not very fond of doing everyday life and cooking, so they prefer to eat in restaurants to save time standing at the stove. Holidays and special events are also celebrated there.

Canadians are very friendly people. They usually find friends where they work and live. By changing their place of residence, they also change their environment. Multiculturalism is one of the country's features. Canada has been officially recognized as a multicultural society since 1971. There are a lot of immigrants in the country, so it is customary to respect the culture and religion of any nation. Everyone has equal rights. Canada is a bilingual country, so documents can be in either English or French. In all provinces, English is adopted as the state language, French is the official language only in Quebec. The only officially bilingual province in Canada is New Brunswick, home to many French speakers.

Canadians cherish nature very much and do not pollute the surrounding nature with garbage. There are many nature reserves and nature parks throughout the country.

Canada, of course, differs from Russia, but only from the best side, and getting used to good things is always easier.
