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 Google.com'.

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.

Google Canada (www,google.ca) Homepage - How Do I Get To CA Google?

Google Canada (www.google.ca) can be accessed in several ways that bypass the redirection of Google localised search or Google (www.google.com) homepage search:

  1. If you usually browse in English from Google.com, and you have not been classified as from a local search region, then just type 'www.google.ca' into your browser search window. This will take you to Google ca, English version, direct.

  2. If you usually browse in French from Google.com, and you have not been classified as from a local search region, then just type 'www.google.ca' into your browser search window. This will take you to Google ca, French version, direct.

  3. If you have been classified by Google as CA local then, on any version of Google homepage that you happen to be on, all you need to do is click the 'Go to Google CA in English' or 'aller a Google Canada en français' link at the lower right of the Google search homepage screen.

  4. You can access GoogleTheGlobe and click on the Canada flag.

  5. You can obtain Canada Google search results by adding or changing the “gl” parameter of the Google search URL, for example http://google.com/search?q=google&gl=ca.

A full explanation of how to access the Classic Google Home that has no country redirection or geo-targeting can be found in Search Google:Universal Search Google:Global Search Google: International Search Google:Worldwide Search Google by Humagaia.

A full explanation of the full list of Google functions available through the Classic Google homepage is available at Google Classic Homepage by Humagaia.

Canada Google (www.google.ca) Homepage – Can I View Only Pages from Canada?

You can view just pages from Canada in either English or French. To do this you use the Google CA webhp function as follows:

http://www.google.ca/webhp?cr=countryCA

This will give Canada only sites and will revert to the language (English or French) in which you previously accessed Google Canada.

If this does not work then an alternative is:

http://www.google.ca/firefox?client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla:en-CA:official

or

http://www.google.ca/firefox?client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla:fr-CA:official

Whichever form you use the Firefox Start page will be shown in the language (English or French) in which you previously accessed Google Canada.

You do not need to run the Firefox browser. Once on the Firefox page just make sure the Search 'Pages : Canada' or the 'Pages in English' button is set, as opposed to the Search 'the web' button (if you are viewing in English). Alternatively, if viewing in French, ensure either the (Search) Rechercher dans 'Pages francophones' button or 'Pages : Canada' is set, instead of Search 'Web' button.
