most misspelled words canada map

'Banana', 'special', and 'college'. Those are just three of the words most commonly misspelled by Americans — a fact which was illustrated state-by-state on a map made by Google earlier this summer. Now it's Canada's turn, with Google putting out an equally embarrassing map of the most misspelled words in each Canadian province.

While one word ('supercalifragilisticexpialidocious') was found on both the American and Canadian maps, the rest differ quite a bit. Aside from 'colour', 'altar', and 'blueberry', a lot of the words Canadians struggle with are, well, a real struggle. Take 'pneumonia' for example — British Columbians struggle with that, whereas the Northwest Territories struggles with spelling 'facetious'. Manitoba has a hard time with 'atheist', and Saskatchewan with 'discipline'.

As for the rest, you can view them on the map below:
