Canada was a pre-War country, annexed by the United States before the Great War.[1]

Background

In 2059 the Anchorage front line was established in Alaska, to protect its natural resources from the People's Republic of China.[Non-canon 1] As parts of the Alaskan pipeline crosses Canadian territory, the United States attempted to pressure Canada into allowing American military units to guard the resource.[Non-canon 1] This presence, in turn, caused tension and riots, which the United States used as justification to annex the country on June 3, 2072.[1][Non-canon 2]

Known locations

Notes

  • When the stolen vehicle of Danielle Faye was recovered, the contents included a Canadian flag.[2]
  • When speaking to Cass about Jean-Baptiste Cutting she makes fun of his name, saying it sounds "Canadarian."
  • Canada is mentioned on the terminal of disgruntled soldier Jackie.[3]
  • Canada is listed as an incorrect answer to the question "Which country was the first to build a major railway system?" in an exam at the Pioneer Scout camp.
  • The sales figures of Sunset Sarsaparilla can be found on an infographic poster in the company's headquarters. The poster includes sales figures for Canada.[4]
  • Some individuals such as Marge LeBarge and Dave Handy traveled from Canada into what was the United States before the war.[5][6]
  • In Fallout 3, all mailboxes have a 5% chance of having mail addressed to residents who were not able to secure a spot in local vaults. The letter lists other sites, including "newly annexed Canada" as a possible alternative.[7]
  • There is a special encounter in Fallout Tactics called "Canadian Invasion Recreationists." During this encounter, Clarisse will instruct a group to gather next to the American side of a line drawn on the ground.[8] She will then direct the group to walk across to the Canadian side of the line and once complete, the group gets drunk to celebrate.[9] She mentions that there is strong evidence that the Canadian army wore pink.[10]
  • Another random encounter in Fallout Tactics is called Canadian Invasion, where a group is hostile to anyone who approaches, calling them "Canadian scum" and "devious," further commenting that Canada started the Great War.[11] When engaged in combat, they state that they "invaded your country once, and we'll do it again!"[12][13]

Behind the scenes

  • The Northwestern Territories of Canada would have been explored in the canceled Fallout Extreme, in locations such as the Montauk preserve, and The Great Convocation, with the Inuit and Montauk Native Americans being relevant factions.
  • In Fallout: New Vegas, the unique missile launcher Annabelle has a maple leaf on the front of the weapon, a potential reference to the maple leaf on the flag of Canada.
  • The Quebec Claw is the secondary antagonist of the Yukon Five, which references the Canadian location, Quebec. The fictional story takes place in the Yukon Territories.
