Stretching 4,600 km from north to south and 5,500 km from east to west, Canada is the second largest country in the world. And one of the most beautiful! This vast, rugged land stretches across six time zones and boasts a variety of landscapes. Home to 42 national parks, about 40% of the country is covered in forests. Canada has the world’s longest coastline, its own desert (Osooyos, BC), the world’s tallest vertical drop (Mount Thor in Nunavut), truly impressive ice-cored hills called pingos (Tuktoyaktuk in the Northwest Territories), the world’s oldest rocks (The Canadian Shield), and its very own version of the Dead Sea (Little Manitou Lake in Saskatchewan).
From the coasts to the plains to the mountains, we have the best backyard in the world. So, get out there and play!
Happy Canada Day, eh?
