Canada Google CA : www google ca : Google Canada: Search, Webhp: English, French

Updated on February 4, 2015

Google Canada (www google ca) is the Google search page as produced for Canada. Google Canada homepage is a clone of the Google homepage with localized Canada functionality. From Google Canada (www google ca) you can undertake searches that have a Canadian bias, with Canada Google in English or Canada Google in French (français).

As with all other Google search pages, Google CA search can be viewed in languages other than English. To achieve this you can utilise the Google ca webhp function. Another trick is to increase the Canada bias to show only Canadian sites.

Google CA looks like the Google classic homepage except that it is badged as Canada with the letters 'Canada' under the 'le' of Google and the redirection function set to 'Go to'.

Occasionally the Google ca homepage looks a little different and has celebration-specific graphics which reflect special days in the Canadian calendar, just like all other local and international versions of Google. Otherwise, in the English or French versions of Google Canada, you will see very little difference from any other local country version of Google search homepage.
