Canada is United States neighbor and share a huge border including Alaska and the 48 lower states for 3,500 miles or land border .
Aside of some French and Spanish most US / Canadian residents mostly speak English but have different slangs at times .
The Canadian dollar is close to the same value as there southern US dollar and also The United States and Canada are each other biggest trade partners in Oil , Food , Gas , Minerals , Waters ..... and the USA military pretty much protects North American waters from Arctic / Atlantic / Pacific / Great Lakes from outside forces .
America has Starbucks and Canada has Tim Hortons coffee shops that the population loves to buy product .
United States and Canadian people have respect and love for each other cultures and share the same teams in NBA / MLB / NHL and both counties like American / Canadian Football as a sport .

Canada, and the USA are neighbours, sharing the world's longest undefended border. We are also each other's biggest trading partners. More links = more influence.

Geography. Also, they were smaller with not so deep a history.

I'll say because it's way easier and a lot less expensive for their citizens to come on over and spend some money.

Canada is a former British colony. That's why Canada - after achieving independece - can't cope with the influence of Britain (for example in schooling). On the other hand USA has got full independence in 1776.
