Canada is a country that is more than 5,000 kilometres wide, with harsh Winters and Summers that are warm and humid. Here, nature is king. Mankind has had to learn to live with its whims and with its winter snowstorms. Canada has a tapestry of landscape and animals, from the idyllic beauty of the majestic mountains of British Columbia to the maple forests.
Once you've returned from Canada, you'll enjoy your pancakes with 100% natural maple syrup, and you'll be a champion brownie baker. Meanwhile you can lose the weight by working out in your new kit or going for a run with Canadian folk music (what else) playing in the background.
Canada was discovered by the French in the fifteenth century before falling under English colonial rule. The country won its independence in 1931 and developed a prosperous economy that now attracts many tourists and workers.
Canada is well known for its openness and its efforts to increase accessibility for people with disabilities in the country. In most cases, these efforts have paid off, even though there have been some failures. If you have a physical disability, it seems that Canada would be one of the best countries to visit.
