The tag "Canadian" generally suggests music that is performed or written by those of Canadian nationality. Canada is a large country in North America with a population of 38 million, roughly ten-times smaller than its southern neighbors in the United States. Music of Canada has been largely influenced by its association with the US, France, and Commonwealth Nations such as the UK. Canada also has a significant Jamaican diaspora population - mainly in Toronto and its surrounding areas - which has also served as an influence for the area's hip-hop scene.
