The second largest country in the world in terms of landmass, Canada occupies the northernmost part of North America. The State is a stable and long established democracy which asserted its independence from the British gradually, a process completed in 1982 when the vestigial powers of the British Parliament ceased. Though human rights standards in Canada are generally high, the State has been widely criticised for ongoing discrimination against children from indigenous backgrounds.
