My wife is doing a research paper for her medical class she is in and needs to ask a few questions. I thought this might be a great place to "interview"Canadian citizens, without having to drive to Canada. If you could help out, it would be much appreciated.

What are the major holidays in Canada?

How do you celebrate these?

Are there certain traditional foods that are served for holidays?

Are there any traditions that your family has?

What type of foods do you usually eat?

How big are your families?

Does your family have any history of health issues?
If yes, what?

Do you have any superstitions?

Are there any home remedies that you use?

What are your spiritual beliefs?

If you had a medical condition, who would be the one to make medical decisions?

In a family, describe the roles of who is supposed to do what. (Who makes the decisions.)

What are your thoughts toward fertility and birth control?

What are your thoughts on organ donation?

Where do you go for medical care?


Thanks for the help.

What are the major holidays in Canada?
basically the same as yours with a few exceptions, here is a good link that could help you out. http://www.pch.gc.ca/pgm/ceem-cced/jfa-ha/index-eng.cfm our remembrance day is like your veterans day, a day to remember the past and present.

also of note, Canada and the US sometimes have some good joint celebrations for Canada day (July 1st) and Independence day. for instance the Detroit river usually put on a great firework show.

How do you celebrate these?
pretty much the same way that you do

Are there certain traditional foods that are served for holidays?
again these would be similar to yours, turkey at thanksgiving type thing, *just a different date for us to you ours"

Are there any traditions that your family has?
Mine no, other families do have some traditions

What type of foods do you usually eat?
again we would most likely fall under the same type of food, however I am from a very multicultural city (Toronto) so there is food from all over the world that you could have at any time you please. but really I am a steak and potatoes kind of guy

How big are your families?
I am the youngest of 2, I would say the typical family would be 2 to 3 kids

Does your family have any history of health issues?
If yes, what?
no hereditary problems in my family that I know of

Do you have any superstitions?
nope

Are there any home remedies that you use?
Rye, hot water, and honey when a cold starts up, does that count

What are your spiritual beliefs?
I was raised with no religion, but my family is christian by nature, (celebrate the holidays and such), but Canada is very multicultural so we have a wide variety of faiths.

If you had a medical condition, who would be the one to make medical decisions?
well I am still quite young (24) so that would still fall under my parents if I could not make them

In a family, describe the roles of who is supposed to do what. (Who makes the decisions.)
again this is just my family, but my dad worked and my mom raised us kids, as for decisions, I would say they are joint

What are your thoughts toward fertility and birth control?
I am fine with birth control

What are your thoughts on organ donation?
I am most likely going to be cremated, so if there is no chance to save me and their are usable organs, yes I would donate them

Where do you go for medical care?
for the everyday stuff I would go to the family doctor, but if it was something time serious and an emergency it is the ER, I personally will not go the the ER if it demands anything less the stitches or a broken bone, I HATE people that go there with a runny nose.


Thanks for the help.

again these are just my opinions so hopefully others will be along to help you out so you can get more of a diversity

What are your thoughts toward fertility and birth control?
