Let's go back in History...
In the late 1900s and early 2000th century, about 900,000 French Canadians moved to America and by the late 20th century the french language was abandoned but the catholic religion was kept. Twice as many English Canadian came to the US but didn't form distinctive ethnic settlements.

Political

Both America and Canada have democratic views but both have different types of government, America has a a Federal Presidential Constitution Republic and Canada has a Federal Parliamentary Constitutional Monarchy. Canada is a democratic constitutional monarchy, The sovereign as the head of state, the elected prime minister as head of government, and the federal system as parliamentary government. The government responsibilities and functions are shared between federal,provincial, and territorial government. The federal responsibilities are carried out by monarchy, executive, legislative, and judicial branches of government. Health care in Canada is delivered through publicly funded healthcare systems, and is mostly free at point of use. Also, guided by provisions of the Canada heath care act, the government assures the quality of care through federal standards. The government doesn't participate in day to day care or collect any information about the person's heath, this is confidential between the person and the doctor.
