Celebrate Canada Day with Special CAA Offers

Canada Day is right around the corner and we’ve got some exciting things planned for our nation’s 146th birthday. But before we share what CAA South Central Ontario has in store, here are some fun facts about the Great White North:

  • Hockey and lacrosse are both Canada’s national sports
  • John Cabot was the first explorer to reach Canada in 1497
  • Canadians consume more macaroni and cheese than any other nation on Earth
  • Ontario’s groundhog (named Wiarton Willie) is an albino groundhog from Wiarton, Ontario
  • There hasn’t been mail delivery on Saturday in Canada for the past 35 years
  • The Stanley Cup has its own bodyguard
  • The word “Canada” comes from a misunderstanding between Jacques Cartier and some Iroquois youth. The youth were pointing out a small area (for which they used the word “Kanata”), but Cartier took that to mean the entire area
  • There are no snakes on the island of Newfoundland
  • Canada only received an official national flag almost 100 years after it became a country
