Celebrating Our Canadian Heritage – What’s So Great about Us Canadians, Anyway?

The Power of Co-Branding

Since Confederation in 1867, Canada has seen positive growth and change. Today, all Canadians are part of a global community connected by ease of travel and modern technology. As we recognize Canada’s 150th anniversary of Confederation, it’s a great time for all Canadians to think about what it really means to be Canadian. What exactly does it mean to you? As a nation, we have shown time and time again, that the people of this country value peace, tolerance, compassion, friendship and democracy.

Canadians have carved out a global reputation, a history and a uniquely Canadian cultural mosaic. Making our mark all over the world, Canadians are not only known for our values, we have changed the world with our innovation, too! We Canucks invented basketball, the telephone, insulin, the hockey goalie mask, the zipper and the CanadArm, to name just a few!

Though basketball may be more popular with our neighbours to the south, it was a Canadian gym teacher, James Naismith, who invented the sport in 1891. The world can thank Alexander Graham Bell for the telephone, which has come a very a long way since 1876, when Mr. Bell used his invention to communicate, saying, “Mr. Watson, come here. I want to see you.” Then there’s insulin, which was created by Dr. Frederick Banting, a Nobel Prize laureate of Alliston, Ontario.  Jacques Plante of Montreal Canadiens fame was the first goaltender to create and use a goalie mask in 1959. A Canadian electrical engineer, named Gideon Sundback created the first modern-day zipper in 1913, improving upon earlier renditions. The CanadArm was used for 30 years as part of the NASA Space Shuttle Program. It’s a robotic arm that captured and repaired satellites, helped position astronauts and moved cargo!
