Canada and the United States share the world's longest undefended border, co-operate on military campaigns and exercises, and are each other's largest trading partner. Canada nevertheless has an independent foreign policy, most notably maintaining full relations with Cuba and declining to participate in the Iraq War. Canada also maintains historic ties to the United Kingdom and France and to other former British and French colonies through Canada's membership in the Commonwealth of Nations and the Francophonie.Canada is noted for having a strong and positive relationship with the Netherlands, and the Dutch government traditionally gives tulips, a symbol of the Netherlands, to Canada each year in remembrance of the latter country's contribution to its liberation.Canadian culture has historically been influenced by British, French, and Aboriginal cultures and traditions. There are distinctive Aboriginal cultures, languages, art, and music spread across Canada.Many North American Indigenous words, inventions and games have become an everyday part of Canadian language and use. The canoe, snowshoes, the toboggan, lacrosse, tug of war, maple syrup and tobacco are examples of products, inventions and games.Some of the words include the barbecue, caribou, chipmunk, woodchuck, hammock, skunk, mahogany, hurricane and moose

I just found this forum a while ago....I am a Canadian Woodworker in Victoria, British Columbia....how many other women woodworkers are out there....the work in the gallery is incredible. I build furniture using old doors, windows, old fir etc.....and love it. I have a simple shop and basic tools but I manage. I am in the process of putting together a diva magazine for women...or men...my blogsite, which is also just being constructed is daisyexpress.blogspot.com. Would love to have some feedback....thanks so much and I look forward to being part of this forum....Sheryl[img]i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif[/img]
I've been kind of frustrated trying to see if there's anything purely Canadian out there - and mostly because of the suppliers who frequently get mentioned in cross-border forums are U.S. based (like Rockler).
