I. Definitions:

State: a politically organized body of people usually occupying a definite territory; especially : one that is sovereign [1]

II. Criteria of Statehood:

The Montevideo Convention on Statehood of 1933 sets out several requirements for Statehood. The criteria of the convention are: (1) a permanent population, (2) a defined territory, (3) government and (4) the capacity to entire into relations with other States. [2]

III. Conclusion:

1. Canada has a permanent population of 36 million. [3]

2. Canada occupies land north of the United states. [3]

3. Canada has a defined government, it recognises Queen Elizabeth as head of state and has a Parliament. [3]

4. Canada engages in diplomacy with many countries. [3]

The country of Canada meets all these criteria for statehood, therefore Canada is a state.
