Civilization V Customisation Wiki

Canada led by Wilfrid Laurier is a custom civilization by DuskJockey and Legendary, with contributions from RawSasquatch, Chrisy15, and Firaxis.

This mod requires Brave New World.



Canada's history is several thousand years old, but in the past thousand years or so, more people have arrived and prospered in the nation than ever before. Leif Ericsson discovered Canada around 1000 AD, making it the first part of America to have been discovered from outside. Years passed, and Ericsson's settlements were no more. In 1492, Columbus rediscovered America, and soon enough, the major European powers were ready to get a spot there. France quickly colonised Quebec and renamed the area to New France, but soon they got wrecked by British Imperialism and lost the province, although a lot of Quebecoises still want independence (just not enough to actually get it). Canada remained a major British colony, and even when the United States got independence, Canada remained with Britain. Even through the World Wars, they remained a loyal ally. Canada today is one of the best devoloped countries in the world.

Wilfrid Laurier[]

Canada's first Francophone prime minister, Sir Wilfrid Laurier is often considered one of the country's greatest statesmen. He is well known for his policies of conciliation, expanding Confederation, and compromise between French and English Canada.

Dawn of Man[]

"Canada is free and freedom is its nationality, and it is your task, Sir Wilfrid Laurier, to ensure that this liberty is preserved. Born from French stock, your tenure as Prime Minister would cement the foundations of Canada as a bastion of freedom in the new world. Under your leadership, Canada would expand to the green plains of the West, and the wounds dealt by the rivalries and alliances of the Old World would begin to heal. An intelligent and eloquent politician, your words and deeds would keep Canada hale and whole through the First World War and beyond.


Art by RawSasquatch

The world is once again plunged into darkness, and Canada herself struggles in the shadows. O' steadfast Prime Minister, will you be for Canada a pillar of fire, guiding the free world with your sunny ways? Will you build a civilization to stand the test of time?"

Introduction: "On behalf of the people of Canada, welcome. I am Prime Minister Laurier."

Defeat: "So ends our dream of a Canada that might have been. Our people are good-hearted. Rule with mercy, and learn from them."
