Canucks are full of surprises! From the wacky people who live here to our ‘controversial’ food preferences, the ‘odd’ quirks that other countries are always parodying on TV – they’re not entirely false, but there’s nothing to be ashamed of!

Whether it’s pineapple on pizza, ketchup on our chips or even strange names and unsuspecting towns, we’re proud of our country’s identity! In fact, between us coasts, here are 7 towns that you might not believe actually exist in Canada

Saint-Louis-Du-Ha!Ha! is by far the country’s most enthusiastic-sounding city – in fact, it’s even solidified a place in the Guinness Book Of World Records for the town with the most exclamation points in its name. No one is actually sure why the punctuation was added, but it’s definitely put them on the map for tourists looking for something unique.

Located in the Cape Breton Regional Municipality, Christmas Island (like so many others on this list) is tiny, but around the holidays they get pretty popular! In fact, when times get festive, the town gets letters and cards from people all over the world addressed to Santa Claus and his elves. How cute!

Live long and prosper! With an incredibly small population, Vulcan, Alberta has actually become a provincial hot spot for sci-fans and even wowed Conan O’Brien on a recent podcast. From parades to a replica Starship Enterprise and even an entire museum dedicated to Star Trek, it’s pretty clear that this town is proud to share a name with Spock’s home planet.

In your feelings? Take a trip to Emo, Ontario! While it was actually named after their first Reeve’s birthplace in Ireland, it’s hard not to assume people go there just to take photos with their street signs. It’s not just a phase, Mom!

If there’s one town in Canada that we can KNOW has a sense of humour, it’s Dildo. From their town song, explicit shop names and their Hollywoodland sign  – it’s clear that they are wildly self-aware. Don’t agree? That’s alright because Jimmy Kimmel does. The comedian even ran for mayor in 2019 – sending his on-screen sidekick Guillermo to mingle with its residents.

Well, there you have it, friends. 7 towns in Canada that you might not even believe exist. Did any of these surprise you? Let us know!
