    Canada is a democracy. Like Australia, it is a member of the Commonwealth of Nations and its head of state is Queen Elizabeth II. Also like Australia, it is a multicultural nation and people have come to live there from all over the world. There is also a part of Canada called Quebec where the people mostly speak French.
    Indigenous people have lived in Canada from 24,500 BC onward so they are called First Nations. (They are also sometimes called aboriginal peoples, but not with a capital A like Australian Aborigines.) More than a million people (about 4%) are First Nations people and just like in Australia, there are many, many groups all with their own languages and cultures.
    Population of Canada
    In 2012, Canada's population was more than 35 million (compared to Australia, which has a population of 23 million).
    About 13 million people live in Ontario, most of them in the cities.
