Celebrating 10 great inventions Canada gave the world

As Canada nears its 150th birthday, we’re celebrating the great inventions Canada gave the world.

Thousands, perhaps even millions, of Canadians call to mind Dr. Frederick Banting and Dr. Charles Best and their discovery of insulin in the early 1920s among Canada’s proud history of inventions. In 1923, Banting and his supervisor J.J.R. Macleod, received the Nobel Prize.

Similarly, scores of Canadians recall the advent of the Canadarm, Canada’s most-famous robotic and technological achievement. The Canadarm made its space debut on the Space Shuttle Columbia on Nov. 13, 1981.

Other great Canadian inventions might be lesser known.

Did you know the comic superhero Superman was created by Canadian-born artist, Joe Shuster in 1932? Or that James Naismith invented the game of basketball in 1891?

Here’s a look at 10 of the great inventions Canada gave the world.
