There are many reasons why someone might love living in Canada. For a grown-up it could be the job that they get to go to or the home that they live in. But everything is a little different from the perspective of a kid. They tend to notice the simple things that the rest of us might forget about. They could enjoy the beauty of the Rocky Mountains, the fun of living along the Atlantic Ocean, or the freedom that they enjoy to live the sort of life they and their parents choose. Without the headaches of politics, commuting, and getting food on the table at the end of the day, this site is dedicated to the things that make this country great.
Sometimes we all need to take a step back from our desk or stressing out because we have too much to do to appreciate everything that we are given. One of the things that many Canadian children enjoy is getting out in nature and exploring the areas of the country that have not changed much in hundreds of years. Whether you're canoeing across a lake in the summer or skiing some of the best mountains in the world in the winter there is always some piece of Canada that's worth getting out of the city for. And you don't need to travel very far to find it either. Whether you're living in Windsor or in Montreal you're likely less than half an hour from something special.
Every child has that unit in public school where they learn about great Canadians throughout history. There are lots of figures to make you proud to be from the same place. If a kid is thinking of growing up to be a doctor or working in health care may be fascinated that a Canadian discovered penicillin. Or they could love our country's favorite sport and have a poster of Wayne Gretzky, Bobby Orr, or Mario Lemieux on their bedroom wall. There have been so many people who inspire us in many different ways that have come from the Great White North.
Every kid deserves a comfortable home that they can fall in love with. Luckily for those in Canada there are all sorts of exciting cities and towns to choose from. And even if they might not realize it, children here are usually being well taken care of when it comes to their safety, health, and education. They can find a school where they can learn and grow, a dentist or doctor to take care of them when they're not feeling well, and a safe home. Those are all reasons to be proud of where you're from.
As today's children grow up they are only going to discover more reasons to love the fact that they are from Canada. You will see teenagers and young adults proudly displaying a Canadian flag on their bags when they travel and taking advantage of many great schools and job opportunities. One of the best things about this country is that there is always something new to discover. We hope to open your eyes to something new here at Proud Canadian Kids.
