There are many different ways that you can measure a country and compare it to the others in the world. If you're deciding where might be best to live, you might look at things like the landscapes available and the type of people who tend to call that place home. If you're wondering which have the most influence then you're going to look at politics and the leaders. But, no matter whether you're comparing Canada or the UK, what each has contributed to society or where we stand on environmental issues, one thing that is going to make a difference to your decision is the economy of both. Luckily, this country is diverse in so many ways and business is certainly one of them.

While Canada might be one of the largest land masses in the world, it is actually not very big in terms of population. With just over thirty million residents, it is one tenth the size of America in terms of population. This means that there are all sorts of opportunities to live off of the land here. While we are hearing stories all the time like how Canada is fighting over things like oil drilling, this country definitely embraces uses its natural resources more than it discourages it. There are millions of people working in oil, gas, agriculture, and forestry, among other things.

Another way that Canada takes advantage of all of the land that we have available is through tourism and entertainment. You will find a wealth of artists creating artscapes ranging from Banff and Whistler to the Atlantic Ocean off the of the coast of Cape Breton. Canada is known as not putting a whole lot of money into arts funding but it is finding ways to bring people from all over the world to be inspired by what they have to offer. For example, there are hundreds of Hollywood films that are shot in cities like Toronto and Vancouver every year. You could stay at Niagara Falls hotels in Canada to experience one of the natural wonders of the world or take a weekend to experience the Stampede in Calgary.

There are several other countries that you might name first if you were listing those that have the most influence in the world when it comes to technology. But, that does not mean that there is not a lot going on here in Canada. From the huge telecommunications companies like Rogers and Bell, to smaller brands that are on the leading edge of technology like BIM Services and RIM, Canada has some big names and smaller private companies that offer some very interesting career choices. Blackberry is one of the most famous products to come out of Canada, as is Bombardier. The latter actually provides all of the subway cars within cities like New York.

Canada is known as one of the most multicultural countries in the world and one of the reasons for this is that there are so many opportunities here for those in all kinds of different industries. You might find work at one of the top research universities in the world working towards a cure for a disease or could teach English as a second language. Some people in Canada would call this country the real land of opportunity. Click here if you would like to see Maclean's Magazine list of top universities in Canada.
