Large cities such as Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal are in the south near the border of the USA. Although France handed its last colonies in the 18th century, over to the United Kingdom, Canada has remained until today bilingual. In the eastern province of Quebec, French is the first language. Canada is independent since 1867, although Queen Elizabeth II is theoretically still the ruling monarch. In 1999, the semi-autonomous province of Nunavut was created, which is ruled by the native Inuit. Canada is one of the strongest economies in the world and has a very modern infrastructure. The western Canadian city of Vancouver on the Pacific is regularly voted on being one of the most livable cities in the world.
