About 500-600 moose-vehicle collisions are reported annually on the island of Newfoundland.
Newfoundland has the highest concentration of moose in the world.
The province sees somewhere between 500 and 600 collisions between moose and vehicles annually, according to a 2015 report from The Globe and Mail. About 5 to 10 result in serious injuries, with an average of one human death per year.
Newfoundland recently launched a five-year moose-management plan, "partly aimed at reducing moose-vehicle crashes," The Globe and Mail reported last year.
A chunk of Canada has lower gravity than other parts of the world.
The weakness in gravity is slight: A 150-pound person would weigh a tenth of an ounce less in the area near Hudson's Bay. (Although the person's mass would not change!)
Measurements taken by a pair of satellites known as GRACE (Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment) revealed that the weaker gravity was due to "the crust there rebounding slowly after the end of the last ice age [and] a deeper issue involving convection in the Earth’s mantle," according to The New Scientist.
Canadians eat 55% more Kraft Macaroni & Cheese than Americans.
Step aside, poutine. Kraft Macaroni & Cheese — known as "Kraft Dinner" in Canada — is the most purchased grocery item in the country. Canadians eat 3.2 boxes each year, which is 55% more than Americans, according to 2012 data.
Bonus fact: In Canadian band Barenaked Ladies' song "If I Had a Million Dollars," there's one lyric that goes, "If I had a million dollars / we wouldn't have to eat Kraft Dinner / but we would eat Kraft Dinner / of course we would, we'd just eat more."
Quebec accounts for 71% of global syrup production, making it the "Saudi Arabia of syrup," according to the Economist. There's even a Federation of Quebec Maple Syrup Producers (FPAQ) that tries to control the price of maple syrup the way OPEC tries to control the price of oil.
But the "OPEC of maple syrup" is starting to see problems as consumers switch to natural sweeteners, US producers jump into the market, and producers are encouraged to go to the black market, according to Bloomberg.
Approximately 15% of Canadians visit Tim Hortons daily.
According to 2014 estimates from Tim Hortons, 15% of Canadians visit the coffee-and-donut chain every day. That's about 5.3 million people, using the July 2014 estimatefor Canada's population from Statistics Canada.
Moreover, Tim Hortons serves 2 billion cups of coffee a year, which is about eight out of every 10 coffees sold in Canada. This accounts for 60% of the Canadian coffee market, according to Tim Hortons.
