CANADA IS
Roger Whittaker*

Canada is the Rocky Mountain.
Canada is Prince Edward Island.
Canada is a country made for love.
Canada is La Belle Provence.
Canada is the Yukon miner.
Canada is a country full of love.

We have love for our neighbour
Of whatever creed or colour.
We have love for our cities
And our valleys and our plains.
We have a voice that is calling,
Telling all the world we're willing
To welcome them to this great land,
'Cause that's what Canada is.

Canada is the Rocky Mountain.
Canada is Prince Edward Island.
Canada is a country made for love.
Canada is La Belle Provence.
Canada is the Yukon miner.
Canada is a country full of faith.

We have faith in our future.
We're ready for tomorrow.
We've faith in our children
For our future is in their hands.
We have a voice that is calling,
Telling us to keep on hoping,
For time will make this wild land great,
And that's what Canada is.

Canada is the Rocky Mountain.
Canada is Prince Edward Island.
Canada is a country made for love.
Canada is La Belle Provence.
Canada is the Yukon miner.
Canada is a country loving peace.

We have peace in our valleys.
We are happy and contented.
We have peace in our cities
And our boundaries have no chains.
We have a voice that is calling,
Telling all free men we are willing
To show them how to live in peace,
For that's what Canada is.

Canada is the Rocky Mountain.
Canada is Prince Edward Island.
Canada is a country made for love.
Canada is La Belle Provence.
Canada is the Yukon miner.
Canada is a country full of love.
