Culture & People of Canada


A history worth sharing
The roots of our Canadian culture and history are a mix of Indigenous traditions with French and English colonial heritage. The common thread between the different cultures is a vast landscape that can be as generous as it is unforgiving.

Metis


The merger of First Nations peoples and primarily French European settlers in the early days of colonial settlement, the Métis are considered to be one of Canada's aboriginal peoples. Central to the development of the fur trade that opened up the West in the centuries before Canada became a nation, the Metis mostly settled in the Prairies, where they had a reputation as expert hunters, trappers and gatherers.
