Official Lyrics of O Canada!


O Canada!

Our home and native land!

True patriot love in all thy sons command.

With glowing hearts we see thee rise,

The True North strong and free!

From far and wide,

O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

God keep our land glorious and free!

O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.



Etiquette during the playing of the Canadian National Anthem


         As a matter of respect and tradition, it is proper to stand for the playing of "O Canada" as well as for the anthem of any other nation.


         It is traditional for civilian men to take off their hats during the playing of the national anthem. Women as well as children do not remove their hats on such occasions.


         There is no law or behavior governing the playing of the national anthem; it is left to the good citizenship of individuals.
