Teenagers make up less than 9 percent of Canada’s population of about 35 million. Although Canada has ten provinces, two-thirds of teens live in either Quebec or Ontario. Whether they live in cities or rural areas, these young people are growing up in a country that has two national languages, French and English, welcomes immigrants, is socially tolerant, and places a lot of emphasis on their education, independence, and happiness. Featured is an overview of the country, as well as insights into how Canada’s youth experience home and family, education and work, social life, and more.
