Origins of the Canadian language and accent
Canada’s first inhabitants were native people, mainly Eskimos, but in 1497 John Cabot, who was an Italian in the service to England’s Henry VII, discovered Canada. The French then came in the 1500s and various battles were fought between them and the English for certain territories. Finally, in the 17th century, the English gained control. Up to this time the majority of the settlers were French speakers, but after Britain gained control, thousands of Britons came to Canada to settle. The biggest impact on language however, was the American Revolution. After the Americans beat the English and gained independence, there were people who wanted to remain English and the Canadians invited them to settle in Canada and gave them land. This meant that there was now a mixture of British English speakers and American speakers in Canada. Immigrants also came from Ireland and the Ukraine.
Written Canadian is British, but with an American influence. Some spelling is British, like colour with a ‘u’ and some words are spelt in American English, like analyse with a ‘z’ and not an ‘s.’ There are also words in the Canadian vocabulary which are not English, French or American and which have evolved frm their own language.
Canadians sound more American than English and this may be because of the proximity to the United States, but the language has definitely been influenced by English, which can be heard in their pronunciation of some consonants and vowel shifts. A famous Canadian singer is Michael Buble, hear him talking in a Canadian accent here. It is a good example of someone speaking English with a Canadian accent.

Fantastic to work with
The team at Matinée are fantastic to work with. They are really communicative, helpful and turned around the work as quickly as possible. I have no complaints at all and we will definitely be getting back in contact when we next need subtitles.

Friendly and efficient service
The speed of response, and friendly, efficient service from all staff was quite exceptional. Matinee particularly stands out by putting the customer’s needs first, even when the job is relatively small and a bit of a technical challenge. I would strongly recommend Matinee for any subtitling work.
