There’s never been a better time to be a Drupal user in Canada.
Since I started using Drupal in 2008, I’ve seen anecdotal evidence that Drupal is popular in Canada. Since 2006, and probably earlier, there have been active users groups in Toronto, Vancouver, and Montreal, that organize regular conferences and meetups. These local groups are key to the Drupal community’s culture of open source and knowledge sharing. So I wasn’t surprised to learn that Canada is fourth in the world in terms of active users on Drupal.org (behind the US, Great Britain, and India).
The Web Experience Toolkit distribution of Drupal (aka WxT-Drupal, wetkit, or wet-boew) is a version of Drupal designed for organizations with a bilingual and accessibility requirements. Specifically, it's designed for Canadian government and public organizations. It has built with support for English and French, and includes a theme that provides accessibility and responsive support.
