Happy 155th Birthday Canada! Extending from the Atlantic to the Pacific oceans and northward into the Arctic Ocean, Canada is a country in the northern part of North America covering 9.98 million square kilometres, making it the world's second-largest country by total area. Canada has a population of approximately 38 million people and has one of the highest per-capita immigration rates in the world. About four-fifths of the population lives within 150 kilometres (93 mi) of the border with the contiguous United States. The most densely populated part of the country, accounting for nearly 50 percent, is the Quebec City–Windsor Corridor in Southern Quebec and Southern Ontario along the Great Lakes and the Saint Lawrence River. An additional 30 percent live along the British Columbia Lower Mainland and the Calgary–Edmonton Corridor in Alberta. Happy Canada Day!!
