List of seasonal words from Canada

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::



:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

After Russia, Canada is the second largest country in the world. Since Canada is an officially bilingual English-French nation, most of the kigo in this saijiki will be in both English & French.

Canada's geography is so diverse that we need to roughly categorise kigo by geographic regions. These are:

Newfoundland & Labrador, Atlantic Canada, northern Quebec & southern Quebec, northern Ontario, central Ontario, southern Ontario, Algonquin Park, Point Peelee National Park, Great Lakes, Lake Superior, Canadian Shield, Prairies, Near North, tundra, Yukon, Nunavut, Arctic, North Pole, Rocky Mountains, British Columbia,Vancouver Island.


À l'exception de celle de la Russie, la superficie du Canada est la plus grande du monde.
Le Canada est un pays bilingue dont les langues officielles sont l'anglais et le français.
Sa géographie est si varié qu'il faut catégoriser de façon sommaire les kigo selon les diverses régions géographiques, dont les suivantes:

la Terre-Neuve et le Labrador, le Canada atlantique, le Québec méridonial et septentrional, l'Ontario méridonial, central et septentrional, le Parc Algonquin, le Parc national Point Peelee, les Grands Lacs, le Lac Supérieur, le Bouclier canadien, les Prairies, le Nord méridonial et septentrional, la toundra, le Yukon, le Nunavut, l'Arctique et le Pôle du Nord, les Montagnes Rocheuses, la Colombie Britannique; l'Île de Vancouver .

2002

The weekend of May 17th through 19th 2002 saw between forty and fifty haiku poets gather at Glendon College in Toronto, Ontario for Haiku Canada’s annual weekend retreat and AGM. This year’s conference marked the twenty-fifth anniversary celebration of the inception of Haiku Canada. Enthusiasm remained at a high level throughout the weekend and it occurs to me that it must be a rare thing for such a gathering to be so democratic.

Attendees included beginners, experienced poets, and poets who have won many awards. They came from Canada, the United States, and Japan. The Canadian delegates alone covered the country coast to coast…. from British Columbia to Newfoundland, and all points in between. We were all there to learn more about understanding and appreciating haiku, to hone our skills, and to honour the tradition of writing and sharing our small poems. It was as they say, a grand event.
