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.

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!! :-(

A person from Canada. When asked to define being canadian, a canadian will tell you that they are NOT AMERICAN. Though, most other countries identify Canadians as being American Light or French. If a canadian is further prodded for a definition of Canadian beyond not American, most will ramble about snow, toques (and here they mean knit caps worn in winter), hockey amd maple syrup. Canadians lack cultural identity, and so when asked theirs they will list off the countries that their ancestors are from, even if their family has been in Canada for 200 years. A Canadian will usually only tell you that they are Canadian when asked their nationality, such as when travelling or for passport and census purposes.

Note that the above applies only to English Canadians. A French Canadian, be they Québécois, or French Canadian from any other province, is proud of their cultural identity, and their language.
English Canadian in France:

Canadian: I'm from Canada
Frenchman: Oh, so basically you are American?
Canadian: No, I'm English, Welsh, and Italian.
