about

Canadians have long thought of their country as a study in difference?

We see ourselves as a polyglot and restless nation?a country that is on one hand comfortable with our mishmash sense of ourselves, but also prone to worrying about what binds us together as Canadians.

101 things Canadians Should Know About Canada is the Dominion Institute’s playful rebuttal of the notion that we are a nation of contrasts, a country always searching for a consensus as to what Canada “is”. Based on the results of a definitive national survey that asked a wide variety of Canadians to name the people, places, events, accomplishments, and symbols that define this country, a ranked list of 101 items was created. In 101 Things, that list is expanded into a series of fascinating short essays, written by a number of well-known Canadian writers, actors, and journalists, and complemented by charming illustrations by The Globe and Mail’s Anthony Jenkins.

Amusing, surprising, and, above all, informative, 101 Things Canadians Should Know About Canada offers a fascinating glimpse into what makes us who we are.
