INTERNeX Canada: National Prototypes!

I am sure everybody who has spent some time in Vancouver has already noticed how international Vancouver is! The Canadian population for itself is a mix of different nationalities… It’s funny because all our candidates in their very first days always say…Oh but I haven’t see any Canadian yet…of course you did! This is Vancouver, the home for some many different people!

But what would be the typical prototype of a Canadian person? For example when someone thinks in a Spanish girl or guy they always imagine someone with dark hair and dark eyes… I am a good example that the prototypes are not always true! If you think in a Swedish or Russian girl probably you would describe them like tall, blond, and it’s true in some point but they are of course a lot of other kind of person, all kind of beauty…

So before coming here I imagined Canadians like blonds, tall and resisted of the super cold weather! And the only thing that I will agree with myself right now , would be that they are really made for the cold weather, well the most of them. I love the people who are wearing flip flops like if we were in summer, or running with shorts! So here is some tip of how to recognize a Canadian, if they are wearing springs clothes when you were twenty different  coat, probably are Canadian, if they have some coffee in their hands, probably are Canadian, if they  use Eh! For everything, hell yeah! Congratulations you meet a Canadian!

By the way, forget about the tags, the prototypes… every single person are special and unique no matter where they were born! And that’s the best! Can you imagine how bored it would be a world with the same kind of people?

Enjoy the differences!
