Both countries are among the largest in the world (Canada second, U.S. third), and both countries are located in North America, as well as sharing the largest border in the world.

How Americanized is Canada really?

Well technically 100%, as the entire land mass of Canada is situated in North America, making Canada fully American. Now the US isn't entirely American, as Hawaii and the Pacific Islands are not part of the "Americas".

You could probably also ask how Canadianized the United States is. Parts of the United States remind me very much of Canada.

It isn't. Both countries have the same technologies, modern conveniences and luxuries, similar entertainments, similar daily lifestyles. However, Canada is more socially advanced than USA ..... much higher levels of education amongst the general population, less stressors in lifestyle and more laid back, less crime per capita, less racial or religious strife, less poverty, better political structure and less political strife and corruption, more rights for all Canadian society, better dietary habits and overall a generally physically healthier population. It is hopeful that eventually the USA will follow Canada's examples and become more Canadianized for their own social betterment and well being.

Yea Minnesota, Michigan and Wisconsin could all be combined to become a new province of Canada. They are cold enough, hockey and ice fishing are imbedded into the culture and the accent is at least close. Maine, Washington state and parts of upper New york have some Canadian influences too, but probably not as much as the three states mentioned previously. That being said, Alberta is alot like a US rocky mountain state as its more like Montana and Wyoming than the rest of Canada.
