Canada is a country in North America. It is the second largest country in the world by total area, stretching from the Atlantic Ocean in the east to the Pacific Ocean in the west, and north into the Arctic Ocean. Canada is divided into ten provinces and three territories. The capital city of Canada is Ottawa but its largest city is Toronto.[1]

Magical games and sports

Canada is home to three world-renowned Quidditch teams: the Haileybury Hammers of Haileybury, Ontario, the Moose Jaw Meteorites of Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, and the Stonewall Stormers of Stonewall, Manitoba. The Meteorites were almost forced to disband in the 1970s because of their tradition of celebrating victories by flying over nearby towns with sparks trailing from the ends of their broomsticks. Since then, the team has limited this practice to the Quidditch pitch, and, as such, Meteorite games are still a popular tourist attraction for wizards and witches.[2]
