With Canada Day fast approaching, I thought it would be fun to come up with a list of hilarious Canadian stereotypes & slang.
And yes some of these are definitely true.
Oh Canada | From Eh To Zed
A – Aboot is definitely not how we say about. Unless you’re a Newfie…
B – Beer is just better in Canada (and stronger)
C – Cowtown, Alberta, – nice place to live!
D – A double-double & a maple donut please?
E – Pretty nice weather, eh?
F – Free healthcare, boo yeah! (Not really though, let’s be real…)
G – Just give’r there bud!
H – Hockey really should be the national sport (it’s lacrosse, what???)
I – Igloos – of course we all live in them.
J – John? Why yes of course we know John from Toronto.
K – Kraft Dinner is love. Kraft Dinner is life.
L – Wanna lend me a loonie for a slurpee?
M – Moose really do roam through our backyards.
N – Your noggin better be covered with a toque in the winter!
O – Oh Canada – Yes we can sing it in English & French (and sign language for me!)
P – Poutine should be it’s own food group.
Q – If everyone in Canada had to pick a least favourite province, it would be Quebec
R – Grab your runners, we’re going to the gym!
S – Sorry! Sorry for saying sorry! Oh no worries, I’m sorry!
T – Tim’s coffee, every morning.
U – University & college are not the same thing people
V – Voulez vous coucher avec moi? (That’s about the extent of most of our French)
W – Winter & Construction. Our two seasons.
X – We’ve all rocked the Canadian Tuxedo at some point in our lives.
Y – You’re Irish? Me too!
Z – Zamboni. We all wanna drive one.
All jokes aside, I really do love this country and I am so proud to be a Canadian. Especially with all of our quirky ways.
