Canadian dating customs
Because they don't form as cohesive a group as French-speaking Canadians, only very general observations can be made about English-speaking Canadians; they are generally thought of (and consider themselves) more reserved, less aggressive and less excitable than their neighbors to the south.
Most Canadians identify themselves very strongly with their province.
Eighty percent of the residents in Quebec have French ancestry.
All relationships are unique, but here are five differences that you may find between Chinese and Canadian dating culture. But in China, you date because you’re already serious about each other. While in Canadian dating culture it may seem offensive to be asked such personal questions so early on, being a good fit financially is very important in Chinese culture when determining if one should start a serious relationship. For the older generation, hand-holding or linking arms may be the most that happens.
When it comes to naming baby, it’s a relatively common (but by no means universal) Canadian tradition for children to be given names from within the family.
A son might be named after his father or uncle, for instance; a daughter for her sister or grandmother.
Canadian traditions also tend to be closely tied to the country’s various holidays, which are discussed in more detail in that chapter.
It should similarly be noted that since Canada is a country of considerable diversity born from the eclectic immigrant heritage of its people, the traditions of individual Canadian families can vary greatly based on which customs they’ve decided to import from their former homeland.
