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.

If you fit these two criteria, you are a canadian...
1. Pronounce about "aboot", and turn every sentence into a question, eh?
2. Get involved in absolutely nothing having to do with war.
Us canadians don't know what this war is aboot, eh?
People who live in Canada who DON'T live in igloos and ONLY snows in the winter NEVER the summer spring or fall. No they do NOT eat whale blubber and go to school on dogsleds. There is NO SUCH THING as a Canadian accent. They do NOT say '' Eh '' after every sentence and do NOT say aboot instead of about.
''Nice weather, eh?''
''What are you, Canadians?''
