21 Interesting Facts About Canada

Having Unique Hair

Some First Nations people dye their hair in different colors, like blue, red, and even black. There are even some who have actual human hair in their hair. The reason for this phenomenon is not really known, but it has been noticed.

“Eh” is an accurate word!

The term “eh” is widely used in Canadian speech. Along with “about,” it’s a classic example of a stereotypically Canadian linguistic usage. When you say “Eh,” you’re using an invariant because it doesn’t change. “Nice day, eh?” is an example of a tag used to turn a statement into a question. Alternatively, you may use “isn’t it?” in place of the word “eh.”

Apology Act In Canada

Apologies were previously admissible in court, but in 2009, a law was established that declared them invalid. A “sorry” was defined as an “expression of compassion or sorrow” and not as an admission of responsibility or liability related to what was said or done. So be careful not to say “sorry” in Canada if you made a mistake.
