Are you ready to prove that you're a true canuck? Our Northern friends can use some language that others around the world might not understand. They have different names, phrases and items that all come with their own slang word. "Eh" might be the most famous of the words that they use, but what else do you know about them?

Do you know what a "kerfuffle" is? Can you figure out what the word "dep" is slang for? Do you know what word a Canadian might use for "robe"? Many of the words on this quiz are just an alternate name for an object that you might not have heard of. Brush up on your Canadianisms!

If someone says they're going to "head'er", do you know what they're doing? Do you know what letter Canadians use a different word for? Do you know what the word "chinook" means? If those questions are too easy, what's a "bunnyhug"?  There are so many differences in Canadian language!

Maybe you live in Canada, maybe you've been there, or maybe you have friends there. So, do you think you can prove yourself to be an honorary Canadian? If you know your Canadian slang, take the quiz to see your score!
