Canadian Accent Test

Research shows Canadians do say many things differently. Particularly with the vowels. This test asks questions to see if you talk in a way that is unique to Canada.

Those who were born and raised in the Canadian Prairie and most of Ontario should fair the best in this test as the two of the most defining features of the Canadian dialect (canadian raising and the canadian shift) are especially common in this central area. Although those from BC, and Nova Scotia should fair well too. French Canadians, newer Canadians and Newfies may disagree with some of the questions and might not fair as well (but maybe not!)
