A citizen of the northernmost country in North America, Canada.
People from other countries commonly stereotype Canadian culture, though usually as a joke, but, sometimes taken seriously.
The most common stereotypes include:
-Living in igloos
-Saying "eh" a lot
-Being overly nice
-Mispronouncing words such as "house", or "about". ("Aboot, Hoose".)
-Being good at hockey
-Having a unique french accent.
-Having a horse-mounted police force
-Lack of military
-A love for maple syrup
-and so forth.
Many sterotypes hold some shred of truth, as every stereotype does.
-The Canadian military is miniscule in relation to it's land mass, though it is able to do it's duty without problem, in and out of the country.
-How Canadians speak depends on the province. Newfoundlanders (or Newfies) in particular.
-The general interest in hockey seems to be higher in Canada, though the lack of teams make it difficult to win a Stanley Cup.
Canadians are usually portrayed in the media as nice people with funny accents, occasionally riding a moose, wearing a toque, and emphasizing "eh" whenever possible.
In the end, Canadians are the same as Americans, and patriotism ruins it.
The average American could just think of a Canadian as someone who grew up in a different state.
Everyone else can think of them as an American who happens to speak french.
This is assuming that American media has had a larger effect on the concerned party.

Canadian, a native of Canada, from the Algonquin word meaning "my village". Canada is a bilingual (French and English) and multi-cultural country surrounded, in the east, by water and history; in the north by ice, snow, Alaska and the North Pole; in the west, mostly by former easterners and Americans, and, in the south, by our American cousins, many of whom are former Canadians--a people of many origins, including aboriginals.
