Behind the scenes

  • Doctor Who was filmed in Vancouver, B.C. in 1995-96, the first time a Doctor Who production had been mounted in North America.
  • Canada was the first country in North America (and one of the first outside the UK) to see broadcasts of Doctor Who when the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation debuted the first season in 1964 (it was cancelled a year later, however). Viewers in Edmonton, Alberta were also the first to see the 1996 TV movie, which aired there a few days before it was shown in the US. In 2005 Canada repeated history by once again becoming the first North American country (and one of if not the first non-UK countries) to see the revival series, again on the CBC.
  • The origins of Doctor Who also owe a debt to Canada, as Sydney Newman, the defacto creator of Doctor Who, was a Canadian working for the BBC.

First appearance



Canada is a country occupying most of northern North America, extending from the Atlantic Ocean in the east to the Pacific Ocean in the west and northward into the Arctic Ocean. It is the world's second largest country by total area, and shares land borders with the United States to the south and northwest.

The land occupied by Canada was inhabited for millennia by various aboriginal people. Beginning in the late 15th century, British and French expeditions explored and later settled the Atlantic coast. France ceded nearly all of its colonies in North America in 1763 after the Seven Years' War. In 1867, with the union of three British North American colonies through Confederation, Canada was formed as a federal dominion of four provinces. This began an accretion of additional provinces and territories and a process of increasing autonomy from the United Kingdom, highlighted by the Statute of Westminster in 1931, and culminating in the Canada Act in 1982 which severed the vestiges of legal dependence on the British parliament.

A federation comprised of ten provinces and three territories, Canada is a parliamentary democracy and a constitutional monarchy, with Queen Elizabeth II as its head of state. It is a bilingual and multicultural country, with both English and French as official languages at the federal level. Technologically advanced and industrialized, Canada maintains a diversified economy that is heavily reliant upon its abundant natural resources and upon trade—particularly with the United States, with which Canada has had a long and complex relationship.

Canada is a country occupying the northernmost portion of North America, and is the world's second largest country in total area. A number of Henson/Muppet productions have been filmed there:

The Canadian co-production of Sesame Street, initially known only as "Sesame Street Canada", was rechristened Sesame Park in 1996, with new Muppets and framing footage made specifically for the Canadian market.

The Ministry of Education for the Canadian provice of Ontario commissioned the creation of a type of computer called the UNISYS ICON. Ernie's Big Splash was reprogrammed for this platform.

The Gemini Awards are the Canadian equivalent of the Emmy Awards, honouring the best in Canadian-made television. Fraggle Rock, Down at Fraggle Rock: Behind the Scenes, Jim Henson's Dog City, and Sesame Park have each won, or won and been nominated for Geminis.

Various props from Fraggle Rock are in the collection of the Canadian Museum of Civilization.

The Toronto Santa Claus Parade is an annual tradition, and has featured appearances from Sesame Street cast members.

From The Vault

Canada was an independent country north of the United States of America. It gained autonomy from the United Kingdom in 1867, and gained full international and diplomatic independence in 1931. As a country it was much larger than the United States at a total size of 9,093,507 sq km, though its population was much smaller than that of the United States. It is important to note that northwestern Canada borders Alaska, while southern Canada borders the northern United States.

Canada had been annexed as a state by the United States, involving both the oil crisis and the War with China. Alaska and Canada served as a front line during the war, because the oil interests vested in the north by the United States.

News images from Canada are shown in the intro of Fallout 1, where two power armor-clad soldiers execute a Canadian wearing a combat armor, while a happy message of reassuredness flashes across the screen.[1].


Canada's Timeline

"Our dedicated boys keep peace in newly annexed Canada."
Canada, with Anchorage, Alaska marked out.

Canada makes its first appearance in the history of the Fallout universe in 2059, though only in the Fallout Bible timeline (all following notes are from the Fallout Bible timeline unless mentioned otherwise)[2]:


  • The Anchorage Front Line is established, as the United States increases its military presence in Alaska to protect its oil interests. The Anchorage Front Line causes tensions in the United States and Canada, as the United States attempts to pressure Canada into allowing American military units to guard the Alaskan pipeline.


  • Winter: As a sign of increasing tension between the two countries, Canada proves reluctant to allow American troops on Canadian soil or allow American planes to fly over Canadian airspace. The United States and Canadian tensions rise, but Canada eventually backs down, and U.S. troops pass through Canada. This sets the stage for the Canadian annexation (which occurs in 2076).


  • Canada begins to feel the pressure from the United States military as the U.S. draws upon Canadian resources for the war effort. Vast stretches of timberland are destroyed, and other resources in Canada are stretched to the breaking point.


  • The United States' increasing demand for Canadian resources causes protests and riots in several Canadian cities. An attempted sabotage of the Alaskan pipeline is all the military needs as an excuse to begin its annexation of Canada...which in fact had already begun in 2067.


  • January: The United States annexation of Canada is complete. Canadian protesters and rioters are shot on sight, and the Alaskan Pipeline swarms with American military units under the command of Buzz Babcock. Pictures of atrocities make their way to the United States, causing further unrest and protests.


  • January 22: The first domestic use of Power Armor within the United States for crowd and quarantine control. Units originally serving in China and the Anchorage Front Line find themselves fighting Americans at home. Food riots increase, and many civilians are killed. Several soldiers defect from the military both in Canada and the United States. They are captured, and are sent to military prisons.

Political status after annexation

It is unknown whether there were any changes to the United States 13-commonwealth system after the annexation of Canada. It is possible that Canada was under military rule until annexation was finalized (2075 or 2076) because its population was equal to U.S. Commonwealths' population. Borders corrections were also possible, e.g. concerning Alaska and the pipelines.


  • Marge LeBarge, owner of the Kokoweef Mine, born way up north, on the edge of a Lake LeBarge, Yukon (reference to The Cremation of Sam McGee, one of the most famous of Robert W. Service's poems).
  • Dave Handy, IT technician who joined Hubologists.
  • Dane, Possibly a Canadian, a member of the Cathedral in original Fallout, as he told the player, "I used to live in Penticton, British Columbia. Or maybe I saw it on a map of the old days." It should be noted that his words may not be taken seriously because his mind appeared to be chaotic when Vault Dweller was talking to him.
The following is based on Fallout Tactics and some details might contradict canon.
  • Two organizations present in special encounter - CPF (Canadian People's Front) and PFC (People's Front of Canada), which are plays on the "Judean People's Front" and the "Peoples Front of Judea", which are prevalent organizations in Monty Python's Life of Brian film, which are in satirizing left-wing groups in England.


  • Canada most likely made the Cat's Paw magazines.


  • In Fallout 3, all mailboxes have a 5% chance of having some old mail addressed to residents who were not able to secure a spot in local Vaults. The letter lists other sites, including "newly annexed Canada", as a possible alternative.
  • In Fallout 3 expansion The Pitt, Ashur mentions Ronto in his speech, possibly referring to the ruins of the Canadian city of Toronto.


  1. These news images are inspired by real history - in 1968 during the Vietnam War general Nguyen Ngoc Loan executed Nguyen Van Lem in a similar fashion
  2. The following information comes from the Sierra Depot GNN Transcript holodisk, which Chris Avellone discards as non-canon, as it conflicts with the timeline compiled during the development of Fallout. According to Avellone's Fallout Bible, it was modified by the Sierra Army Depot soldiers. 2075
    • February 14: Canada has agreed to be annexed by the U.S. In return, sources say Canada will receive a full 10% of the world's remaining supply of oil, controlled exclusively by the U.S.
    • February 15: The House of Representatives and Congress both voted unanimously to impeach the President for jaywalking. Both houses stated that the President is not above the law and should have known better than to jaywalk. Both sides deny this had anything to do with the recent annexation of Canada.

The Canadian maple leaf flag

Grand Theft Auto games in Canada arrive typically around the same day as copies released to the United States of America.

Some stores in the East Coast don't get the newest releases until 6 weeks after they are released in the West Coast. People in Ontario and Quebec traditionally get their games 3 weeks after they are released in Victoria and Vancouver.

Canada in the early 21st Century.

Canada is a country on the North American continent of Earth and is part of the United Nations Space Command. It shares a border with the United States of America.

Canada is where Ruwan and Myras Tyla wanted to go in their struggle to escape from Cleveland during the Battle of Cleveland.



First populated by Aboriginals, Canada, starting in the late 15th century, was explored and colonised by French and British explorers and settlers. France lost its colonies in North America to Britain in 1763 after the Seven Years War. Under British rule settlers expanded to new areas in the continent owned and protected by the British Empire, until 1867 when four of the colonies of British North America formed the Dominion of Canada. Canada from then on began acquiring land and greater autonomy from Britain, so that by 1992 was the second largest nation on Earth, and had established a close connection with the United States of America.

In the Boer War and World Wars I and II, Canada allied with Britain contributing much supplies, war material and manpower. Canada was a founding member of the United Nations in 1945 and of NATO in 1949. Canada would continue to play major roles militarily through the Korean war, the early 21st century conflict in Afghanistan as well as contributing to various other NATO missions and UN Peacekeeping roles.

United Republic of North America

Canada is a part of the United Republic of North America, which is a loose association of the three largest nations of North America: Canada, the United States and Mexico.

Canada's flag

Hockey is hugely popular in Canada, to the point of having been named the official national sport. Currently, the top league in the country is the National Hockey League (a league established in both Canada and the United States. Despite the immense popularity of the sport in the country and the large number of top-level pro players, paradoxally, professional hockey is not very developped. The NHL only has 6 canadian teams out of its 30 members; the country has other teams in minor North American professional leagues, but there too, they are under-represented comparatively to the U.S.-based teams. The lack of large enough cities and potential investors, along with the high level of taxation in Canada are usually regarded as the main causes of the situation. The country, however, has some very strong semi-professional and amateur leagues.

Ice hockey in the country is governed by Hockey Canada.

History of hockey in Canada

The early years

Ice hockey appeared in Canada early in the 1800s. The original game was pretty much adaptation to European sports of hurley, shinty or field hockey to the winter conditions of the new home of Irish, Scottish and English settlers, respectively. In 1825, Sir John Franklin wrote that "The game of hockey played on the ice was the morning sport" while on Great Bear Lake during one of his Arctic expeditions. In 1843, a British Army officer in Kingston, Ontario, wrote "Began to skate this year, improved quickly and had great fun at hockey on the ice." A Boston Evening Gazette article from 1859 makes reference to an early game of hockey on ice occurring in Halifax in that year. Games in Kingston and Halifax are the earliest recorded hockey games.

While both Kingston and Windsor, Nova Scotia have been claimed by individuals at one point or another as the birthplace of hockey, Montreal is usually acknowledged as the birthplace of modern ice hockey. On March 3rd 1975, a group of students of McGill University in Montreal played the first organized indoor game at the Victoria Skating Rink. This is the earliest eyewitness account known of a specific game of hockey in a specific place at a specific time, and with a recorded score, between two identified teams. Two years later, several McGill students, including James George Aylwin Creighton, Henry Joseph, Richard F. Smith, W.F. Robertson, and W.L. Murray codified seven ice hockey rules.

The sport quickly gained in popularity and official hockey clubs began to appear. The first was the McGill University Hockey Club in 1877; in 1881, the Montreal Victorias were founded. The sport was featured in Montreal's annual Winter Carnival from 1883; McGill won the first "Carnival Cup". In 1886, the Amateur Hockey Association of Canada was founded as a league for the teams that took part in the carnivals.

Amateur hockey

In 1888, Lord Stanley of Preston, the new Governor General of Canada, attended the Montreal Winter Carnival and watched hockey games. He was impressed by what he saw on the ice, and his sons and daughter became hockey enthusiasts. Four years later, after noting the lack of recognition for the best club in the country, he purchased for a reported ten guineas a decorative bowl to silversmiths from Sheffield intended as a trophy. The bowl, initially known as The Dominion Hockey Challenge Cup and more famously later as the Stanley Cup, was first awarded in 1893 to the Montreal HC. If it was originally intended as a challenge cup for champions of various leagues across the country, it became the de facto championship trophy of the National Hockey League in 1926, and de jure in 1947.

Professional hockey

In 1904, International Professional Hockey League(IPHL) was formed in the United States. That league boasted the first professional team from Canada, the Canadian Soo. The league hired amateur players from Canada ; that forced canadians to move from amateurism to professionalism as well, in order to keep their top players in the country. The Manitoba Professional Hockey League holds the distinction of being the first league to go professional in the country, in 1905; that league was essentially made out of the teams of the amateur Manitoba Hockey Association.

The National Hockey Association, precursor of the National Hockey League, was founded in 1910.


On the international level, Canada is very competitive, continuously ranked in the elite of the world and part of the Big Seven.

Some great Canadian players

A very large number of very great talent have come from Canada through the years; they have, at every moment of the history of the NHL, outnumbered the number of American and European players, even though the country only has six franchises out of thirty within its boundaries. Among the very best players to date are:

A representative Canadian landscape? (Not shown: milk in a bag.)

Canada is like the United States of America, but bigger, politer, better and health care-ier. In retaliation, the United States wears Canada like a cap.

Toronto is Canada's largest city! (Yes, there are cities littered aboot the country!)



Marvel Comics continuity

(Note: Events in italics occurred in UK-exclusive material.)

There are lots of polar bears? Actually, no.

When Ratchet blew up the Ark like a shaken-up bottle of beer, it crashed somewhere in northern Canada. The Ark, not the beer, 'cause that'd be a waste of good beer. But Galvatron survived the crash, and since he's like, a big hoser, he killed a bunch of Canadian army guys. Then Spike Witwicky and Fortress Maximus came and beat him up and tossed him in a lake, and that was pretty much it for Galvatron. The Last Autobot?

Japanese cartoon continuity

The Masterforce Autobot group led by Ginrai first met up with Ranger in the vast Canadian forests and Lightfoot at his father's motor company. Both learned aboot their ability to "God On" with their Transtectors soon after. An Enemy? The Third Godmaster, Ranger

Dreamwave Generation One comics continuity

Lazarus has a secret base there. The Canadian army attacked the Autobots for trying to save them, eh? Prime Directive

They have clone armies...
