One example of cultural diffusion in Canada is language. British and French people comes to Canada and introduces their languages to Canadians, so now these two languages becomes the two most spoken, and official languages of Canada. United States and Canada both engage in hockey, and baseball. Hockey comes from Canada, and baseball comes from American culture. This is an example of Cultural Convergence in Canada. This answer is a 50:50, meaning it might not be 100% correct.
