Travel Canada; a dazzling array of diverse landscapes
The Canadian provinces – British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, and the Maritime provinces of New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island – offer a dazzling array of diverse landscapes.
So do the remote northern territories of Nunavut, Yukon, and the Northwest Territories.
Canada is a vast country
Many visitors to Canada (especially from
Europe, where distances are smaller) are surprised by the sheer size of
this country. Canada is a vast country – more than 9,000 km (about 5,600
miles) wide, from the West Coast to the East. It covers an area of
almost ten million km2 (some 3.8 million square miles), making it the
second-biggest country in the world (after Russia).
