Canada

'''Canada''' ( ) is a country in North America consisting of ten provinces and three territories (Provinces and territories of Canada). Located in the northern part of the continent, it extends from the Atlantic to the Pacific and northward into the Arctic Ocean. Covering 9.98 million square kilometres in total, Canada is the world's second-largest country by total area (List of countries and dependencies by area) and the fourth-largest country by land area (List of countries and dependencies by area). Its common border (Canada–United States border) with the United States forms the world's longest land border.

The land that is now Canada has been inhabited for millennia by various Aboriginal peoples (Aboriginal peoples in Canada). Beginning in the late 15th century, British (British colonization of the Americas) and French colonies (French colonization of the Americas) were established on the region's Atlantic coast. As a consequence of various conflicts (Military history of Canada), the United Kingdom gained and lost North American territories until left, in the late 18th century, with what mostly comprises Canada today. Pursuant to the British North America Act (Constitution Act, 1867), on July 1, 1867, three colonies joined (Confederation of Canada) to form the autonomous federal Dominion (Canadian federalism) of Canada. This began an accretion of provinces and territories (Territorial evolution of Canada) to the new self-governing Dominion. In 1931, Britain granted Canada near total independence with the Statute of Westminster 1931 and full sovereignty was attained when the Canada Act 1982 severed the vestiges of legal dependence on the British parliament (Parliament of the United Kingdom).

Canada is a federal (federation) parliamentary democracy and a constitutional monarchy Queen Elizabeth II being the current head of state. The country is officially bilingual (Official bilingualism in Canada) at the federal level. It is one of the world's most ethnically diverse and multicultural (Multiculturalism in Canada) nations, the product of large-scale immigration from many countries, with a population of approximately 35 million as of 2015. Its advanced economy is one of the largest in the world (List of countries by GDP (nominal)), relying chiefly upon its abundant natural resources and well-developed international trade networks. Canada's long and complex relationship (Canada–United States relations) with the United States has had a significant impact on its economy and culture.

Canada is a developed country and one of the wealthiest in the world, with the thirteenth highest (List of countries by GDP (nominal) per capita) per capita income globally, and the eighth highest (List of countries by Human Development Index) ranking in the Human Development Index. It ranks among the highest (International rankings of Canada) in international measurements of government transparency, civil liberties, quality of life, economic freedom, and education. Canada is a member of the Commonwealth of Nations, and is furthermore part of several major international and intergovernmental institutions or groupings, including NATO the G8, the Group of Ten (Group of Ten (economic)), the G20 (G-20 major economies), the North American Free Trade Agreement and the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum.
