Pre-reading activity

 Look at the text and say what information you are going to find in it.

Possible answer: We are going to learn more about population, language, cities and economy of Canada.


Read the text and find necessary information to complete your chart.


Canada is the largest country on the American continent and the second largest country in the world. It has a population of 27 million on an area of 9,976,185 square kilometers! Most of the population is descended from European immigrants. Only 1.5% of today's population is descended from the original Eskimo and Indian inhabitants.

Britain and France fought over Canada for nearly two hundred years. Finally in 1763 Britain took control. Canada is now an independent country with its own prime minister, but the head of state is still the British Queen.

Canada is a bilingual country. The majority of the population speaks English. Most French speakers live in the province of Quebec. Canada's largest city is Toronto. It has a population of 3,800,000. But Toronto is not the capital city. The capital is Ottawa in the province of Ontario.

The national emblem of Canada is the maple leaf and the currency is the Canadian dollar. Canada is a huge country. Its longest river, the Mackenzie, flows for 1,600 km into the Arctic Ocean. It is also a very rich country. It has many' industries (cars, electrical goods, etc.). It produces almost every mineral (gold, silver, iron, copper, uranium, oil, coal, etc.). Canada is the world's biggest producer of nickel, the second biggest producer of zinc and the third biggest producer of lead. Canada is also one of the world's biggest producers of wood and paper (44% of the land is forest). Agriculture (mostly wheat and cattle) is important, too.
