Canadian Popular Culture

Canadian popular culture (or pop culture) is the vernacular (people's) culture that prevails in Canadian society. Canadian popular culture is influenced by Canada's British and French ancestry. Canadian pop culture is also influenced by the United States, which borders Canada to the south; US films, television shows and magazines dominate the Canadian media system. However, Canadians themselves play a large role in the US entertainment industry as leading actors, actresses, writers, directors, producers, technical crews, as well as providing film locations (though rarely if ever will the setting be Canadian). Canadian pop culture is also influenced by the diverse cultures of its immigrant communities, which include substantial populations from China and India.'";
