Physical geography

Canada is the second largest country in the world (3,851,809 square miles as compared to Russia's 8,649,821 square miles). The country's breadth from Cape Spear, Newfoundland, to Mount St. Elias in the Yukon, is 5,780 miles, and its length from Middle Island in Lake Erie to Cape Columbia, Northwest Territories, is 2,850 miles. The Canada/US border is 3,989 miles in length.

Its immediate neighbours are the US to the south, Alaska on the northwest, Russia across the pole, and in the east, the Danish possession of Greenland. It leads the world in freshwater area, vital to transportation and power generation. The Great Lakes-St. Lawrence Seaway system is the principal waterway, navigable for more than 2,000 miles. The Mackenzie River system, which is even longer, flows 2,600 miles through the Northwest Territories down to the Arctic Ocean.

The country falls into six natural divisions, the Appalachian Acadian Region, the St. Lawrence Region the Canadian Shield, the Plains Region of Manitoba Saskatchewan and Alberta, the Cordilleran Region and the Arctic Islands.

The Appalachian/Acadian Region - includes the Atlantic Provinces of Newfoundland, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, together with most of the province of Quebec lying south of the St. Lawrence River. There are numerous rivers in this region and the soil is very fertile for farming, dairying and fruit growing. There are also many natural harbours which have the only all-year ports in eastern Canada. Rich mineral deposits produce nearly half the coal mined in Canada. There is also a vast area set aside for forestry. Newsprint mills situated in this district produce a substantial percentage of the entire Canadian output.

The St. Lawrence Region - lies along the St. Lawrence River in Quebec and includes the part of Ontario lying west of Kingston and embraced by Lake Ontario, Lake Erie, and Lake Huron. This region is largely made up of a level fertile plain with rich soil, making it one of Canada's most important agricultural areas. The Niagara Peninsula within this region enjoys such moderate temperatures it offers excellent conditions for the growth of peaches, cherries, plums, grapes and garden produce.

The Canadian Shield - with Hudson Bay as its centre, is shaped like an inverted horseshoe, and covers nearly half of Canada. The surface of the Canadian Shield is a vast reservoir of forest and waterpower resources, its rocks a store-house of minerals, as yet only partly tapped.

The Interior Plains - this region includes the Western Provinces of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and a large area of Alberta. It is part of a great flat area of the continent which stretches from the Gulf of Mexico to the Arctic Ocean. It extends as far west as the Rocky Mountains and eastward to the edge of the Canadian Shield. It includes a substantial part of the world's wheat supply. The main occupation throughout the prairie regions is farming. The principal mineral resources are petroleum, natural gas and potash. The annual production of crude oil from this district ranks the fields among the most important in the Commonwealth.

The Cordilleran Region - The Cordillera of Western Canada consists of three parallel northwest-trending geological and topographical systems. The Eastern System of western Alberta, eastern British Columbia eastern Yukon, and western Northwest Territories includes the Rocky, Richardson, Franklin and Mackenzie Mountains and foothills, and several intervening plateaux. Comprising the Western System are the Coast Mountains along the west mainland of British Columbia, the St. Elias Mountains in southwest Yukon, the Queen Charlotte Islands and Vancouver Island. The Interior System lies between the Eastern and Western Systems. It contains the plateaux, plains and subdued mountain ranges of the interior of British Columbia and Yukon Territory. The Western Cordillerian Region has a mountain area width about 400 miles and is without a doubt the most rugged district in Canada. Some of the finest fruit growing districts in Canada are found in British Columbia. Much of the region however is too rugged for agriculture. Production of lumber and pulpwood is of marked importance in the economy of this region.

Arctic Islands - run from the northern shore of the mainland in a great triangle with its apex at Ellesmere Island. Some of these islands are of an enormous size. Baffin Island is 197,754 square miles in area, which is nearly half the size of the Province of Ontario. Some deposits of coal and other minerals have been discovered in these Islands, but the economic possibilities have not been thoroughly explored. Since the Arctic Islands are largely situated within the Arctic Circle, the unfavourable climatic conditions have forestalled any serious attempt at commercial development of their mineral resources.


Summers, in most parts of Canada, are comfortably warm. Average daytime temperature (July and August) in Halifax is about 21°C, Ottawa 24.29 °C; Winnipeg 21-27 °C; and Vancouver about 21°C. Winters in Canada are cold and snowy with the exception of the west coast where the grass is still green at Christmas. Halifax, on the eastern seaboard has an average mean temperature in the winter of two degrees, whereas Vancouver on the western seaboard, has a winter mean temperature of 39° As you move inland, the temperatures decrease. For example, the average mean temperature in Ottawa is 14°, in Winnipeg 9°, and in Edmonton 14°.

Economic geography

Only one-third of Canada's total area has been brought under development to date. Less than eight per cent of the country is classified as occupied farmland, and only about 24 per cent of the total area is regarded as productive forested land. Canada is indeed a reservoir of untapped natural resources.

Fish, fur, forests, farms and factories have been and still are, the main features of Canada's economy. With the west's economic expansion at the beginning of the century, industrial growth in the St. Lawrence basin was stimulated, coal and steel production became an inherent part of Maritime economy, and the nickel-copper deposits at Sudbury, Ontario, were brought into production. Since the Second World War, iron ore and other minerals have opened the north, and oil and natural gas have been found on the Prairies, in the Arctic and off the east coast.

Canada is a highly industrialised country, abundant in mineral resources and agricultural products. The west is primarily concerned with wheat and grain production along with cattle ranching, whereas the eastern half of the country employs itself in mixed farming with the emphasis on vegetable and dairy production to supply the urban centres. A large-scale lumber industry is only too evident on both the east and west coasts. The major minerals are crude oil, nickel, iron ore, copper and zinc. Some of its main industries are pulp and paper, food processing, leather, production of chemical and allied goods, iron and steel, transportation equipment, electrical apparatus, textiles and clothing.

Travel in Canada and the development of tourist facilities have expanded hand-in-hand since the Second World War until tourism has become one of Canada's leading industries.


The population of Canada is 22,095,000. Montreal is Canada's largest city with an urban population of 2,775,000, while Toronto is the second largest with 2,692,000. The next largest city is metropolitan Vancouver (Winnipeg now claims to be the third largest and it's technically true if you leave out the metro part of Vancouver) with a population of 1,116,000. (See also Miscellaneous).

A brief history

Canada's early story is largely unrecorded. No one actually knows who discovered what is now Canada or when. Long after Indians and Eskimos had settled the continent, Icelanders discovered it and for centuries traded with Baffin Island and Labrador. In 1497 John Cabot claimed land for the English Crown, in 1534 Jacques Cartier planted the flag of France on a Gaspe promontory. Exploitation of the fisheries and fur trade led to intensive rivalry between the two imperial powers and paved the way for the conflict which ended in the Treaty of Paris in 1763.

This agreement gave the British all Upper and Lower Canada except for two Gulf Islands, St. Pierre and Miquelon.

Subsequent decades were marked by immigration, the extension of frontier settlements, two conflicts with the United States and struggles for responsible government. In 1864, came meetings in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island and Quebec city to discuss the suggestion of a federation of provinces.

On 1 July 1867 'one Dominion under the name Canada' was formed, the first provinces to enter into this confederation were Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. The genius of Sir John A Macdonald and Sir George-Etienne Cartier, leaders of English and French factions, held the nation together and gradually other provinces joined: Manitoba in 1870; British Columbia, 1871; Prince Edward Island, 1873; Saskatchewan and Alberta, 1905; Newfoundland, 1949.

In 1917, when Canada would have celebrated its first half century, a world war was in progress, therefore Canadians celebrated the country's 100th birthday in 1967 and all ten provinces and the two territories joined in the celebrations.


That freedom of religion prevails In Canada is evident by the number and variety of Christian sects and other faiths which conduct services throughout the country. The people of Canada are predominantly Christian. According to the latest figures, the three numerically largest denominations are Roman Catholics, United Church of Canada and the Anglican Church of Canada. Members of smaller Christian groups and other faiths include Baptist, Greek Orthodox, Jewish Lutheran, Mennonite, Mormon, Presbyterian, Ukrainian (Greek) Catholics. In addition to the Bill of Rights, passed in Parliament in 1960, which guarantees religious and other freedoms, provincial and federal laws have been passed to eliminate discrimination of race and religion.

Languages spoken by nationals

Canada has two official languages: English and French. The preservation of both the English and the French languages was safeguarded by the provision that either language might be used in the debates of the Parliament of Canada and the Legislature of Quebec and in any Federal court in Canada and that both languages were to be used in the respective records and journals and in the published Act of Parliament of Canada and of the Legislature of Quebec.

Canadians speak either English or French or both - but a visitor to Canada will encounter Chinese, German, Hungarian, Italian, to name a few.


Canada has seven time zones, the most easterly being Newfoundland Standard Time, three hours and 30 minutes behind Universal Time, and the most westerly Yukon (west) Standard Time, nine hours behind UT. In between, from east to west, the remaining zones are called Atlantic, Eastern, Central, Mountain, Pacific and Yukon (east). Yukon (east) and Pacific Standard in effect constitute a single zone.

Daylight Saving Time (from the last Sunday in April to last Sunday in October) is, in effect, by law in most provinces. Saskatchewan presents the most complicated picture of any province, although most of the province operates on CST the year round, with other areas using MST. It is usually necessary to refer to individual municipalities to determine whether Daylight Saving Time is adopted there or not.


The money system in Canada as in the United States, is based on dollars and cents. Visitors are urged to exchange their funds for Canadian dollars at a bank where they will receive the prevailing foreign exchange rate. By using Canadian money during their travels in Canada they will avoid exchange problems.

Official holidays (all offices and shops closed)

Official government holidays in Canada occur on the following days: l January, New Year's Day - Good Friday and Easter Monday (These vary from year to year) - The Monday preceding 24 May, Victoria Day 1 July, Dominion Day - 1st Monday in September, Labour Day - 2nd Monday in October, Thanksgiving Day - l1 November, Remembrance Day - 25 December, Christmas Day - 26 December, Boxing Day, a holiday in most provinces.

How to dress

The type of clothes you should bring to Canada depends, of course, upon how you propose to travel, what you want to do and where you are going to stay; Summers and winters in Canada vary from province to province, even from city to city. The following suggestions are intended only to give you an idea of what type of clothes you should take with you.

Canadian summers generally last from May to September. If you are planning a trip to Canada during that time, we would advise bringing light-coloured, lightweight clothes, such as cotton suits, dresses and skirts for the ladies, and lightweight summer suits, sport slacks, shirts and jackets for the men. Summer temperatures range from about 16-27 C in the country, to 21-29C in the city. It is advisable to bring lightweight coats or sweaters as some evenings can be quite cool. The central cities of Canada are usually quite humid during the summer, while the western and coastal cities are warm and dry. We would also advise bringing beachwear and rainwear. Evening wear varies, depending upon where you travel. At some hotels in the larger cities you must 'dress' for dinner, whereas in the country and resort areas, 'casual' attire is the order of the day - slacks, lightweight sweaters, sports jackets. If you are planning to stay at one of our many big hotels during your trip in Canada, ladies should bring a couple of cocktail dresses, and men, a dark suit or two, and perhaps even a dinner jacket. <P>Canadian winters, it seems, have become somewhat of a legend around the world. If you are travelling to Canada from November to March, bring warm clothes: heavy suits and coats, sweaters, gloves and snow boots. If you are going to ski, take slacks and sweaters for the evening. Most of Canada's ski resorts have a very relaxed and casual atmosphere. <P><IMG SRC="../NEWPICS/Strip.gif" WIDTH="532" HEIGHT="3"><H3>Main holiday resorts </H3> The principal vacation areas across Canada are: 1.

Also from province to province, the legal drinking age varies between 18 and 21 years. Under federal law, bar waiters and owners can refuse to serve young people if they have no proof of their age. For the benefit of travellers, some of Canada's airports serve beer and liquor 24 hours a day. Canadians drink rye and scotch whiskey, gin, rum, beer, wine, both native and imported varieties. <P><IMG SRC="../NEWPICS/Strip.gif" WIDTH="532" HEIGHT="3"><H3>What to buy </H3> We are very proud of the industries which have grown up in Canada within the last 60 years.
