Ranging from the Atlantic to Pacific Oceans and northward well above the Arctic Circle to the Arctic Ocean, Canada is the world’s second largest country. Yet its population density of 9 people per square mile is one of the lowest. The great majority of its population dwells in the lower latitudes in the major cities just above the United States. Canada is made up of 10 provinces and three territories. Though the country’s political and culinary existence has been influenced largely by Native, English, and French cultures, a steady flow of immigration from all points of the globe continues to broaden Canada’s culinary landscape. Canada is well known for its natural bounty: berries, salmon, wild rice, fiddlehead ferns, wild mushrooms, caribou, and of course maple syrup. More than 80 percent of the world’s maple syrup comes from Canada. Canada’s wine industry is coming on strong in British Columbia and Ontario. Curiously, Canadians eat more donuts than any other nation on earth. With more doughnut shops per capita than anywhere, it’s not surprising that Canadians are also big coffee drinkers.
