French canadian not ok? :/

"French Canadian" refers to the people. If you talk about the language it's Canadian French; a "type" of French.

but there's more than one kind of french dialect in canada


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JegHeterJule

Yes, but it is the most "famous" in the country since it's the official language of the province, contrary to the other provinces where French is a second language.

To be honest with you, I don't really know the names of the other dialects and I'm Canadian (I know "chiak" and that's about that - I can recognize the accents, but dialects is something different).

Its the most famous, sure, but acadie was founded four years before quebec ever existed and new brunswick is the only truly bilingual province. The dialect is a very distinctive one as well.

Do not confound speaking French canadian and the normed written french in Canada. One speaks quebecois, acadien and so on. It is like american english and british english.
