In the past, Canadian citizenship cards were issued to new Canadians upon naturalization and established Canadians (upon request). As of 2012 these cards have been discontinued, and there is no national identity card or equivalent. Driver's licenses issued by the provinces are the primary form of identification. All provinces and territories except Quebec also issue separate photo identification cards for non-drivers. Health cards (issued by the provinces) and passports (issued by the Canadian federal government) are used as supplemental or alternative identification.

Canada National Anthem
O Canada!
Our home and native land!
True patriot love in all thy sons command.
With glowing hearts we see thee rise,
The True North strong and free!

O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
God keep our land glorious and free!
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

Key social issues

We are sharing media in the country at the end of the country because media is the foundation of countries, as it shares what is happening in the country with the world.
Si image making or breaking of the country is as much with the hands of people & political parties as media from any country.


NGO Brands in the country will share key social issues in the country.
Remember, they will share only names of issues and stories related to that will be in the related social issue forum.
