Canada is a very young country in comparison to the rest of the world because it has been a country for less then 150 years, although it was founded much earlier. Canada is quite similar to the United States in the fact that the British developed it, along with the battles put forth by the French to take over the two countries. In fact Canada is a bilingual country, speaking both French and English. Canada is also influenced by the United States in many ways due to the fact that it is the world longest unprotected boarder.

Time is fairly loose ended, you are expected to be on time but if you have reason you will likely be able to still get fit in, it is not something that should be made into a habit because that is a valid reason for them to end business with someone. Subjects that should not be touched upon unless this is the nature of your business are: Americans wanting Canadian water to create powering California, it is a sour point for Canadians because it is their resource and there has been no attempt to provide retribution, the soft lumber dispute should be avoided because the fact is that Canadians are mad over the situations.
