Quiz WriterJake

Jake didn’t think he’d become a writer when he was growing up in southern Saskatchewan, Canada, but fate had another idea. After barely squeaking through grade 9 English, by the luck of the draw Jake found himself with the most inspiring literature instructor his small town had ever known, and grade 10 English changed his life! Suddenly, evenings once spent at the hockey rink were spent curled up on the couch with the best of Hemingway, Dickens, and John Grisham. A valedictorian address and English degree at the University of Regina later, Jake is proud to call Heywise his favorite place to pen informative quizzes about all his passion projects. If you’re reading a post and pick up a hint of classic English literature, you’re probably reading something by Jake - especially if you come away feeling like a slightly better person for it.

Did you know?

Did you know where the name

Canada got its name from the French explorer Jacques Cartier. The word "Canada" is derived from the Huron-Iroquois word "Kanata" which means "village" or "settlement." In 1535 Jacques Cartier heard about a route that would take him Kanata from two Aboriginal youths. Following the path that would lead him to the village of Stadacona, now known as Quebec City, he ended up in Canada. Cartier used the word "Canada" to describe the village of Stadacona, and the name extended beyond the village to the entire surrounding area. By 1547, everything north of the St. Lawrence River was being referred to as Canada, on maps and such.

Canada was used officially as a name in 1791, when the province of Quebec divided itself up into Upper Canada and Lower Canada, which were then united in 1841, and called "the Province of Canada."
