Something that is often of interest to those who visit other countries, is what the lifestyles are like. Canada has many different provinces, and they each have developed their own lifestyles. This indeed can be said about the North East Canada regions.
Lifestyle in Yukon Territory
With the Yukon being about as far North as you can get in Canada, you can imagine how cold the temperatures are. This plays a significant factor in the lifestyle of those who live here. It is often called the Great White North. That doesn’t mean that is laden with snow all year round. The residents do enjoy a comfortable summer, although it is quite short. As part of their lifestyle, they enjoy activities such as:
- Horseback riding
The environment is one of great beauty, which also affects the lifestyle. People want to be outdoors as much as possible.
Lifestyle in Quebec
Some consider Quebec to be the midpoint between the north and the east of the country. As such, there are some changes in the weather conditions. Quebec has a little bit of the Yukon weather, and then at other times, is more like what they experience in the east. These two mixes seem to have formed their own environment for Quebecers. There are a lot of great diverse cultural experiences in this province, that affect the lifestyle of its people. Some of the things the population here likes to do are as follows.
- Hold events that relate strongly to their francophone background
- Quebec is well known for the offering of exceptional cuisine, and the residents here love to dine out, and explore new experiences
- Their lifestyle includes the preservation of their history, which they do through their museums and festivals
Lifestyle of Nova Scotia
Going to the eastern sector, means taking a look at the lifestyle of residents in Nova Scotia. This province is occupied by a population that believes in taking life in its stride. They are hard workers, but being able to relax and socialize, is a top priority here. Some of the activities they enjoy participating in are:
- Outdoor sports
- Enjoying their outdoor national parks
Catering to Tourism
The further north you go, the less tourism is evident. Although the Yukon and the NWT are working hard at changing this. Each of the provinces and the territories that make up the North East of Canada is well worth visiting. They each possess something that is highly important to the culture of the country. Those that visit this sector of Canada often find they have totally unique, but enjoyable, experiences, no matter which region they spend some time at. There is also the option of going from one province or territory to the other.
