    Canada adjoins the USA. Geographical proximity and economic relations make influence more likely.

    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.
