Traditions and customs of the inhabitants of Canada

In Canada, they love holidays, which are divided into religious and political. Generally, all holidays are weekdays except Christmas and Easter. The favorite holidays of Canadians are Canada Day (July 1), Labor Day (September) and Thanksgiving Day (October).
It is customary to give gifts in Canada only on special occasions (anniversary, wedding, Christmas). And the most expensive gifts are usually given to newlyweds. As for the rest of the cases, it is customary to give gifts that would not oblige the person being gifted to anything. To whom it is categorically not accepted to give gifts is to the authorities - this will be perceived as a bribe.
Canadians are law-abiding citizens, so it is common practice to report wrongdoing or a neighbor who lives beyond their means to the authorities..
Residents of Canada are very careful about nature (they expect the same from guests who come to the country) and about their health (many do not smoke, and besides, smoking in public places is not allowed).
Canadians are very punctual people, so if you make an appointment and are late, be prepared for the fact that in 10-15 minutes their patience will burst (no one will wait for you) - you will not have the most disagreeable impression, and you will earn a reputation of not being serious human.
