Recently, I posted the Chinese names for all 50 states in America. Someone commented that they would like to learn how to say all of the provinces and territories of Canada in Chinese as well. You want it, you got it! We want to give our readers content that is useful and helpful to them when it comes to learning about Chinese language & culture, so if there’s anything in particular you’d like to see a post about, don’t be shy and leave us a comment. Here’s all the vocabulary you’ll need to talk about Canada in Chinese:
If you’re like me, you might need to review the names in English first!
Note that for all provinces except for Newfoundland and Prince Edward Island, you can add the word for “province” (省 – shěng) to the end of the name. It’s not necessary, though, as Chinese people will certainly know that you’re talking about Saskatchewan when you say “Sà sī kā chè wēn” – there’s no other Chinese word that sounds anything like that!
If you’re Canadian, we’d love to hear from you in Chinese!
