When it comes to land mass, Canada is slightly larger than the US — 3.9 million square miles in Canada vs 3.8 million for the US.
But when it comes to people and economic activity, the is US much larger. Consider this:
- The US population is about 10 times that of Canada’s.
- The GDP of the US is more than 10 times that of Canada’s
- California’s population is greater than the population of all of Canada.
- California’s economy is larger than Canada’s.
I Love Charts puts Canada’s population in relation to the US in perspective. You can put 10 Canada’s into one US. Nice!
