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.
-Being "outdoors-y"
-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.

Canadians ; a southside Milwaukee term for referring to ignorant African Americans covertly in a racist manner. Great for using in the presence of African Americans, which usually they will ether nod their head or laugh agree without actually knowing it was referring them. Also great to use on a first date to gauge the girls racism and or stupidity. Was created on the eastside of milwaukee in a 24 hr cafe to refer to 2 black people that where actually born in Canada , but then was used to refer to all ignorant black people when it was realized i had less of a sting then calling someone a nigger, which is a terrible ineffective word which no longer has a a meaning for most
At 2 in the morning a $500 beAter with 22s drives past with its cheap ass blown subs blaring and smelling of dirt weed you would say "damn canadians"

If MLK JR n Malcolm X saw how a majority of Canadians lived today they wouldnt have done much

Drake is so fake n such a fuckin Canadian ( n not cause hes from Canada)

You drive past the welfare office and say to your girlfriend" i dont understand why i have to struggle making ends meet just to pay taxes to support generations of Canadians?"

A term used by people in the service industry for difficult customers who leave little to no tip. This term is often used for African Americans, and Foreigners, including actual Canadians, that tend to act like they do not understand the American system of working for tips and getting paid next to nothing hourly!!(which is how the term started) In countries other than the USA waiters get paid hourly rates, and tend to not receive tips so, when they travel to the USA they either don't know they should tip, or pretend they don't know in order to cheat their server. Unfortunately African Americans tend to also fall into this category of incredibly low insulting tips or just no tips at all.
Man, I'll never be able to pay rent, or feed my kids if I keep getting all these tables of Canadians not tipping me worth crap! I mean I'm not here waiting tables for free!! :-(
