About This Quiz

Are you a history buff? Does Canadian history, specifically, light your fire? If so, we've got a quiz for you. We've compiled a list of 35 questions about Canadian history. Do you think you're smart enough to get them all right? Let's find out.

So, have you watched the Facebook video about the Canadian that is trying to get a bear to leave his yard? The Canadian politely asks the bear to vacate the premises. Now, if that isn't Canadian, we don't know what is. And, if you haven't seen the video, look it up. You won't be sorry.

So, assuming that good old Christopher Columbus first landed in the United States, we can assume that the US was settled long before Canada, right? Well, that's not entirely true. Even before the first European settlers came ashore in the United States, native peoples populated Canada via a land mass that spanned the Bering Strait as long as 40,000 years ago, making the country to our north older (and some might say, wiser) than we are.

But, how much do you actually know about our neighbors to the north other than the stereotype of extreme politeness? Take this quiz to find out.
