An excerpt from the overview of Canada:

People in Canada are Canadians.  The major groups are British (40%), French (27%), and other Europeans (23%), indigenous Indians and Eskimos (1.7%).

Of the millions of Canada's people, over 80% of them live within 160 kilometers (100 miles) of the border of the United States.  Half of them live in the southeastern area near the St. Lawrence River and the Great Lakes.

Over 7 million French-speaking people are descendants of colonists who settled the country three hundred years ago.  The English-speaking community has been built up by immigrants from the United Kingdom.  The largest number of people from the United States came during the American Revolution when thousands of "Empire Loyalists" fled to Canada.

Most Canadians are not of either English or French descent but German, Ukrainian, Scandinavian, Italian, Dutch, Polish, indigenous Indian or Inuit (Eskimo) descent.

Dating and marriage customs are the same as in the United States, and it is not uncommon for couples to live together without being married.  After two years, the government recognizes the couple as a common-law marriage.
