About this Site...

Canadians are a tricky people to distinguish. They are often able to blend into a society and appear to be American, British, French or any other number of nationalities. This site will provide you with some tips and tricks to help you recognize a Canadian no matter where you are.

 

This site is for entertainment purposes only. "How to Spot a Canadian" is filled with humour, satire, hyperbole, parody and sarcasm. All statements here should be taken with a grain of salt or a bottle of maple syrup, whatever the case may be.

    In countless coffees I've won one doughnut. That's it. I'm so unimpressed with Tim's.. but I'll keep buying multiple coffees daily because I'm addicted.

    Isn't it sad?

    Every year when Roll Up starts, I buy a round of coffee for the office staff and myself at the local school I volunteer at. It behoves me to say that every year for the last 4 years I've bought 5 coffee's at a time, and every year for those same 4 years, it's either the principal or one of the secretaries that wins something. I have never yet won a thing on the roll-ups I've bought.

    You're right, it is indeed sad! I'm the volunteer, they're all paid to be there, and for 4 years running now, I haven't managed to get a free coffee out of Timmies for myself! This last year, I actually happened to be the only one who didn't get a free coffee, how sad is that!?!

    That's terrible.

    I'm within the 1-in-9 odds so far.

    Two outta five.

    Well, daughter is a Starbuck's barista, so I don't go to Timmie's much... obviously.

    But I got a free donut and a free coffee.

    A doctor at work won a car. Figures.
