* All of the members of WebVideo/TwoBestFriendsPlay[[note]]namely the entire "Best Friends Zaibatsu" of Matt, Pat, Woolie, and Liam[[/note]] are Canadians living in Montreal. This has been known to surprise fans due to Matt, one of the heads of TBFP, loved shouting "AMERICA!" as one of his catchphrases for a long time[[note]]videos where they play games on Xbox360 even show his GamerTag is "Amer1canMatt" or some variation of said name based on if he's changed it[[/note]]. Matt explained this in an interview by stating that one of his parents actually is from the United States and because of this classmates used to tease him growing up by calling him "an American," and that he always had a love for certain aspects of American culture and superheroes like ComicBook/CaptainAmerica. It's worth noting that that both Matt and Pat have stated that they don't particularly care for Quebec (granted they may have been referring to the city and not the province, which they live in, but it wasn't entirely clear). Pat and Liam have been known to sometimes play this trope straight by [[VerbalTic saying "eh?" at the end of a decent amount of their sentences]].

** Servo has also speculated that ''Film/SpaceMutiny'' may be Canadian-made ("it's just rife with the smell of back-bacon"). Poor Tom goofed; the film was actually made in UsefulNotes/SouthAfrica during UsefulNotes/TheApartheidEra, which may explain why everyone on the ship [[UnfortunateImplications is white]].

* '''UsefulNotes/{{Toronto}}''': basically Chicago but cleaner. Not actually the national capital, despite the fact many foreigners think it is. It's actually the provincial[[note]]"provinces" are Canada's version of States, ya hoser.[[/note]] capital of Ontario.

Keep in mind that Canada, Eh? has no West Coast (besides ALL of British Columbia), no Prairies (besides a fairly large hunk of the middle of the country), and certainly no mild winters (except for UsefulNotes/{{Vancouver}}). The warm weather stops right aboot at the border (unless it presents a passport).

Eeeeeh, Canadians [[WesternAnimation/SouthPark eat nothing but Kraft Dinner]] [[Music/BarenakedLadies even if they didn't HAVE to eat Kraft Dinner]] (which is Canadian for "macaroni and cheese"), Tim Hortons, donuts, poutine[[note]]French fries with cheese curds, and enough gravy to partially melt the cheese[[/note]], and Canadian... er... peameal bacon. Anglophone Canadians all speak with a stereotyped [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/West/Central_Canadian_English West/Central Canadian English]] accent, putting "eh" [[VerbalTic at the end of questions or affirmations]], and prominently raising the "ou" in aboot every word containing it. Also, as per the page image, Canadians are famed for shamelessly holding their maple syrup jugs on the ''non-handle side''.

* In ''Manga/AxisPowersHetalia'', Canada looks exactly like America except for a different hair cut (his hair is somewhat longer, and his haircurl is longer with a curl near the end - kind of like the one the Italy brothers have) is ''extremely'' quiet, [[VerbalTic says "Maple"]] and/or "Maple Hockey" when surprised, is constantly mistaken for his brother, America, and no one really remembers him. He is usually invisible to other nations, who sometimes think the "other presence" in the room is a ghost. And then the last part is reversed, when [[CrowningmomentOfAwesome he's the host of]] Manga/{{Hetaween 2011}}. And he even gets people to tell him how good his work is. [[NeverLiveItDown The fandom conveniently forgets it.]]
* The Canadian Gundam from ''[[Anime/MobileFighterGGundam G Gundam]]'' is a giant wood cutter as is its pilot. All we get to see of the actual country is a forest where... there is wood cut.

* At some point in the distant future of ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamIronBloodedOrphans Iron-Blooded Orphans]]'', following the Calamity War, the Canadian City of Edmonton, Alberta, was made capital of the economic bloc Arbrau, one of the major political powers in the setting.

* UsefulNotes/HongKong comic ''ComicStrip/TheWorldOfLilyWong'' featured a StoryArc where Lily's no-good brother Rudy and his mates were thinking of holding up a store and wanted to get guns without paying a fee to the local Triads. The obvious answer? Ask an American! Rudy approaches his gwailo ("Ghost Man", aka Caucasian) brother-in-law, Stuart.
-->'''Rudy:''' Hey, gwailo, can I borrow your gun?
-->'''Stuart:''' What makes you think I have a gun?
-->'''Rudy:''' Aw, c'mon, all Americans have guns!
-->'''Stuart:''' Well I don't.
-->''(Rudy returns disappointedly to his friends.)''
-->'''Rudy:''' Bad news, lads. I think this one must be Canadian.
* Creator/MarvelComics' ''ComicBook/AlphaFlight'' was about Canada's superteam, written & drawn by Canadian John Byrne (born in the UK, but raised in Edmonton, Alberta Canada - where Wolverine is supposedly from). Only one character (Puck) had the "eh" verbal tic, and it specifically '''didn't''' appear in his thought balloons.

** OmegaFlight seemed to strive to be as ''un-Canadian as possible'' to the point of having ''US Agent'' on the team, and making the current Guardian (as in, the guy with the ''maple leaf'' on his outfit) a former ''US postal worker''. Only two members of the team were actually Canadian.

** A discarded version of the "Wolverine: Origins" story line had Wolverine born and spend his early life in the Southern States and move to Canada after the reveal causes tragedy in his family. It was eventually decided that his Canadian origin was at this point too integral to his fan recognition to ignore.

* The ''ComicBook/ScottPilgrim'' series, based in a surreal, video game-like version of Toronto, averts most of these stereotypes (it should be noted the author, Bryan Lee O'Malley, is Canadian himself), except for the occasional "eh." Also, American characters' dialogue will be spelled with words like "flavor," while the Canadian cast says "flavour." [[Film/ScottPilgrimVsTheWorld The film]], with American audiences in mind, lampshades this trope in the intro, saying that the story takes place "In the faraway land of Toronto, Canada". There are plenty of jokes thrown in for Canadians, too, though, like the scene of Scott fighting Lucas at [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Casa_Loma Casa Loma]], where a Hollywood movie is being filmed. At one point, Scott gets thrown through a backdrop of the New York skyline, tearing a hole over the Empire State Building. Through the hole, the CN Tower can be clearly seen.

He doesn't get very far, obviously, as he seems to assume that walking from his [[WhereTheHellIsSpringfield unspecified hometown]] (generally assumed to be Chagrin Falls, Ohio) to the Yukon will only take an afternoon, but he says that once he gets there he'll be able to hunt walruses.

* In ''Film/{{Argo}}'' the Canadians help the US smuggle a group of embassy staffers out of Tehran after the embassy takeover. Which leads to a quite funny TV clip of a spokesman for the Iranian government swearing eternal vengeance on Canada with a look on his face saying nothing short of "WTF am I reading?"



* Inverted in ''Film/CSATheConfederateStatesOfAmerica'': in an AlternateTimeline where the Confederates won the American Civil War, many of the writers, artists, and musicians we consider a part of American culture end up emigrating to Canada to avoid Confederate morality laws...making Canada the more sophisticated, economically sound, and culturally relevant country of the two, and the CSA the backwards country.

* Subverted in ''Film/{{Detention}}'' with Gord, Riley's uber-Canadian debate partner and an all-around {{jerkass}} who makes Riley wish that the stereotype of "polite Canadians" were true. [[spoiler:Turns out he's not actually Canadian, though -- or even human, for that matter.]]
* ''Film/GoodNeighbors'' is set in Montréal, specifically ''Notre-Dame-de-Grâce'', and features several Canadian actors. English and French are used interchangeably with some characters.
* ''La Grande Séduction'', a Quebeçois movie about a small fishing town's attempt to convince a doctor to move there, and its English-language remake, ''The Grand Seduction'', which moves the setting to Newfoundland, and gets most of its supporting cast from ''This Hour Has 22 Minutes'' and other CBC comedies.



* Canadian cities are sometimes seen as interchangeable, even by other Canadians. For instance, the movie ''A Problem with Fear'' is set in Calgary's underground subway system. Unfortunately for the film, Calgary does not have and has never had an underground subway system; the film was shot in Montreal, as the French-language ads in the background of many shots will attest. (And to be honest, having French-language ads in a movie supposedly set in Calgary is actually weirder than inventing a subway system.)

* ''Film/TakingLives'' is an American thriller set for no particular reason in Montreal, which you can tell because everyone speaks French from France and there's an establishing shot of the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chateau_Frontenac Château Frontenac]]. Having the Chateau Frontenac in Montreal is the equivalent of showing the Statue of Liberty in Washington (and having Quebecois speak with French accents is the equivalent of New Yorkers speaking with British accents). The inaccuracies get worse from there. There doesn't seem to be any discernible reason to call in the FBI to do the RCMP's job, and somehow they've found a magical train that gets from Montreal to Fredericton in [[YouFailGeographyForever nine hours]], a trip that normally takes about 22 hours.

* One segment from Creator/{{E}}'s ''101 Hollywood Secrets'' was about the number of Hollywood actors from Canada.
* In one episode of ''Series/TheAdventuresOfPeteAndPete'', Little Pete attempts to run away from home by riding a riding mower to Canada. A Mountie catches him at the border, hitches the mower to the back of his horse and drags him home that way.
* The Canadian series of ''Series/BigBrother''.
** While most series will occasionally allude to what country they are set in (Sometimes with a house design being based off of particular architectural styles), the Canadian edition has almost ''way'' too much fun with this trope. Not only is the house built completely indoors with the only outdoor area being the hot tub (And by their friends at The Brick dot Com![[hottip:*: The Brick is a Canadian chain of furniture stores - think IKEA]]) but they will often dress the houseguests in the Canadian flag colours, have them compete in hockey-themed challenges, or give treats such as Poutine, Maple Syrup, Beavertails[[hottip:*:Pastries comparable to a funnel cake or a donut that may be topped with something like bananas, Nutella, or maple syrup]], and ketchup flavoured potato chips.
** The houseguests of course find the stereotypes hilarious and even join in themselves - Season 2 featured a Canadian flag that they all signed. Surprisingly, you don't hear a lot of "Eh?"s, although season 2 definitely features a lot of people with thicker CanadianAccents than the first season, which featured mostly people from Ontario. (Notable for Kyle, Jon, and Sabrina, whose East-Canadian and Francophone accents are ''definitely'' pronounced. Jon and Allison even got so drunk they [[TheUnintelligible spoke Newfie to each other]]) Many of the Canadian viewers even get a chuckle, especially in the second season where the first words heard on the live feeds were [[CrowningMomentOfFunny "Where's the Maple Syrup?"]]
* Nadia, From the ''Series/BitchinKitchen'' DOES finish most of her sentences with "eh", though it's more of an Italian thing than Canadian.
* The eponymous ''Series/{{Bones}}'' once insulted a man so hard his arm stopped working. He was Canadian and the entire episode he appeared in was filled with the Canadians-are-polite stereotype. When told he should get angry and yell at Bones, he said:
-->'''Canuck:''' I couldn't possibly, I'm...\\

'''Canuck:''' ''Canadian''.
* The eco-thriller mini-series ''Burn Up'', jointly produced by Creator/TheBBC and Canada's Global Television, stars Calgary... as Calgary.
* Played straight in Season 7 of ''Series/CanadasWorstDriver'', featuring the maple leaf, moose, beer, curling, AND a snowplow.
* Series/{{Castle}} wants to travel to Montreal alone to investigate [[spoiler: his recent two-month-long disappearance]]; Beckett insists that it might be too dangerous. Castle (played by Canadian Nathan Fillion) responds with "It's Canada! How dangerous could it be?" to fellow Canadian Stana Katic.
* ''Series/CornerGas'', one of the few acknowledgements that midwestern Canada exists.
** An episode involves an American tourist accidentally arriving in Dog River. One towns person (Hank) becomes smug and tries to mock the American for his lack of knowledge regarding Canada. However, the American turns out to be very well versed in Canadian politics and geography. The entire episode is an affectionate mocking of Canadian preconceptions about Americans.
** In another episode, Oscar has passport-related difficulties due to being in America when his expired. Brent senses a potential prank and runs with it, convinces Oscar to act out every possible Canadian stereotype to "convince the CRTC that he really is Canadian", culminating in trying to have him sing the national anthem in public knowing he'll mess it up. [[spoiler: Brent ends up singing the anthem instead due to his mother's interference, and he screws it up entirely because his attempts to confuse Oscar result in him forgetting which lyrics (O Canada or Star Spangled Banner) go with which melody.]]

* Parodied in Rick Mercer's ''Series/ThisHourHas22Minutes'' sketch (and eventual special) "Talking To Americans", in which he interviewed American citizens, playing off their ill-conceived notions of what life is like in Canada (i.e. asking people if they would visit "Canada's national igloo", making them believe the Canadian time zones run on 20-hour clocks, convincing them that moose are being pelted with Tim Hortons Timbits, having them think Canada goes through a period of nocturnal darkness every year, etc.) One of his favorite traps is to try and get U.S. politicians to say that Toronto is the national capital. The CrowningMomentOfFunny comes when he's asking a woman if she can name all the Canadian states, and her young son points out that Canada has provinces, not states.
* Another Rick Mercer production, ''Series/MadeInCanada'' satirises Canadian show business and sometimes broadens its targets to include more about Canada:
** In the episode "People of the Fish", the Canadian characters trot out a variety of stereotypically negative aspects of life in Canada to scare off an annoying American producer who wants to move there, including absurdly high income tax (which TV producer Richard claims have resulted in the government seizing his car), long wait times for even the most basic medical procedures (Richard's colleague, Veronica, claims to have spent all night in the hospital waiting to be treated for a paper cut), and draconian requirements that Canada-produced media include a certain amount of "Canadian content" (leading Richard to suggest [[Series/TheRedGreenShow Steve Smith]] as the lead for the series they are producing).
** Inverted whenever dealing with characters who are American. Often Americans are portrayed as dumb, culture-unaware, and occasionally gun-loving. The Vice President of NBC is a good example of being a Fake American when Richard visits Los Angeles in the episode "Second in Command"; he thinks Maine is a Canadian province, and believes Richard when he tells him July is Canada's coldest month.

** In another episode, Oscar has passport-related difficulties due to
the pilot involved the main character being assigned a semi-permanent post in America when his expired. Brent senses Washington, D.C., thereby rendering the whole exercise pointless. It was not picked up for a potential prank and runs full series.
* In ''Series/VeronicaMars'' the girls are pressured to join a dorm-wide party where everyone decorates their rooms like a different country. They give a TakeThat to the whole thing by picking Canada,
with it, convinces Oscar to act out every possible Canadian stereotype to "convince the CRTC that he really is Canadian," culminating in trying to have him sing the national anthem in public knowing he'll mess it up. [[spoiler: Brent ends up singing the anthem instead due to his mother's interference, country spirit consisting of a picture of a moose, saying "Eh," and he screws it up entirely because his attempts to confuse Oscar result in him forgetting which lyrics (O Canada or Star Spangled Banner) go with which melody.]]playing Music/BarenakedLadies songs.



** A game of Foreign Film Dub, which involves two of the actors [[AsLongAsItSoundsForeign faking a foreign language]] while the other two "translate" for them. One time, the "foreign language" given to them to fake and translate was "Canadian." In addition to the "film" being entitled "Oot 'n' Aboot," the "Canadian" language as faked consisted of nothing but the word "eh," interspersed with words like "hoser," and various hockey-related terms. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TYDfSBdKUC8 Here it is.]]
* In ''Series/{{JAG}}'', Clayton Webb getting assigned to a station in Canada was considered punishment for leaking classified information, and Harm expresses sympathy that he was getting assigned there, despite Canada's status as a first world country that's culturally a fair bit like the US, speaks the same language, and is a short flight from his home in the DC area.
* In ''Series/{{NCIS}}'', [=McGee=] is up at the border working with the Mounties on a joint operation, and when seen in the background they're wearing the scarlet tunics, and obviously traveled on horseback.
* Nadia, From the ''Series/BitchinKitchen'' DOES finish most of her sentences with "eh", though it's more of an Italian thing than Canadian.
* The eponymous ''Series/{{Bones}}'' once insulted a man so hard his arm stopped working. He was Canadian and the entire episode he appeared in was filled with the Canadians-are-polite stereotype. When told he should get angry and yell at Bones, he said:
-->'''Canuck:''' I couldn't possibly, I'm...\\
'''Sweets:''' Afraid?\\
'''Canuck:''' ''Canadian''.
* In ''Series/VeronicaMars'' the girls are pressured to join a dorm-wide party where everyone decorates their rooms like a different country. They give a TakeThat to the whole thing by picking Canada, with the country spirit consisting of a picture of a moose, saying "Eh," and playing Music/BarenakedLadies songs.
* The Series/MythBusters have done a few myths that involve Canada somehow (Exploding Hair Cream and at least two border-crossing myths); the jokes and stereotypes tend to fall into this trope.
* Played straight in Season 7 of ''Series/CanadasWorstDriver'', featuring the maple leaf, moose, beer, curling, AND a snowplow.
* The Canadian series of ''Series/BigBrother''.
** While most series will occasionally allude to what country they are set in (Sometimes with a house design being based off of particular architectural styles), the Canadian edition has almost ''way'' too much fun with this trope. Not only is the house built completely indoors with the only outdoor area being the hot tub (And by their friends at The Brick dot Com![[hottip:*: The Brick is a Canadian chain of furniture stores - think IKEA]]) but they will often dress the houseguests in the Canadian flag colours, have them compete in hockey-themed challenges, or give treats such as Poutine, Maple Syrup, Beavertails[[hottip:*:Pastries comparable to a funnel cake or a donut that may be topped with something like bananas, Nutella, or maple syrup]], and ketchup flavoured potato chips.
** The houseguests of course find the stereotypes hilarious and even join in themselves - Season 2 featured a Canadian flag that they all signed. Surprisingly, you don't hear a lot of "Eh?"s, although season 2 definitely features a lot of people with thicker CanadianAccents than the first season, which featured mostly people from Ontario. (Notable for Kyle, Jon, and Sabrina, whose East-Canadian and Francophone accents are ''definitely'' pronounced. Jon and Allison even got so drunk they [[TheUnintelligible spoke Newfie to each other]]) Many of the Canadian viewers even get a chuckle, especially in the second season where the first words heard on the live feeds were "[[CrowningMomentOfFunny Where's the Maple Syrup?"]]
* Oscar the Grouch from ''Series/SesameStreet'' is from Canada, specifically Minto, New Brunswick; it's not something he lieks to advertise.
* The ''Series/{{Sliders}}'' standard excuse for why they don't understand customs (or cutting edge technology) on the various worlds they slide into is that they're from Canada. It usually works, with the locals assuming Canada is just that different.
* Series/{{Castle}} wants to travel to Montreal alone to investigate [[spoiler: his recent two-month-long disappearance]]; Beckett insists that it might be too dangerous. Castle (played by Canadian Nathan Fillion) responds with "It's Canada! How dangerous could it be?" to fellow Canadian Stana Katic.
* A portion of the KoreanSeries ''Series/{{Goblin}}'' takes place in Quebec.
* One ''Series/MadamSecretary'' episode has Secretary of State Elizabeth [=McCord=] get into a very polite standoff with her Canadian counterpart over an environmental report on an oil pipeline, which she resolves by threatening to revoke the visas of every Canadian in the NHL. [[spoiler:The Canadians later let Liz use their embassy in Washington as a TruceZone so she can meet privately with the Iranian foreign minister and salvage the nuclear program talks.]]
* ''Series/{{Letterkenny}}'' is about a pair of hicks from a small town in Ontario, who play up their accents as much as they can and drop "eh?" after every other sentence.

* USANetwork showed a pilot for a series (''Underfunded'') that would involve a character working for the "Canadian Secret Service" (CSS). In addition to not being particularly well-researched (Canada's foreign intelligence service is the Canadian Security Intelligence Service, or CSIS), the end of the pilot involved the main character being assigned a semi-permanent post in Washington, D.C., thereby rendering the whole exercise pointless. It was not picked up for a full series.

* Oddly enough, ProfessionalWrestling completely averts this trope (well, ''almost'' completely; after all, Wrestling/{{WWE}} did have a {{heel}} mountie in full dress uniform for a while; ironically, WWE wasn't allowed to use him in Canada at all), even though they embrace every single other stereotypical ethnic trope out there. This may be because half the wrestlers in North America (at least the well-known ones) are from either Canada or Texas. In fact, professional wrestling may be the only form of popular fictional entertainment where Canadians can be portrayed as jerks or outright evil.
