One of Canada's best gifts for its upcoming 148th birthday came from the Canadian Arab Institute.

The non-profit posted a lovely video to YouTube last week that showed opera soprano Miriam Khalil singing "O Canada" in Arabic.

It was one of the finest versions of the national anthem we've heard yet. And it had us thinking: what does "O Canada" sound like in other languages?

Canada is a multicultural country, where as many as one in five people speak a language other than English or French at home. So it only makes sense to highlight how the anthem sounds in dialects such as Punjabi, Cantonese, Tagalog and Canada's indigenous languages.

Here are 13 more ways to sing "O Canada" that aren't English or French:

In the Cree language:

In Uummarmiutun, an Inuit language:

In Inuktitut, an Inuit language:

In the Dene language:

In the Ojibwe language:

In Punjabi:

In Tagalog:
