Canada facts & history in brief

Canada is the second largest country of the world, occupying most of the northern part of North America apart for Alaska and bounded by the Pacific on the west, the Arctic on the north, and the Atlantic Ocean on the east.
Canada is a federation of the ten provinces of Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Prince Edward Island, Quebec, Saskatchewan, the Yukon Territory, and the Northwest Territories.
Canada's southern boundary with the U.S.A. along latitude 49 North, crosses the Rocky Mountains and continues eastward on to the Great Lakes and the Saint Lawrence, and then crosses the northern Appalachian Mountains to join the sea along the Saint Croix River.
Northern Canada is a land of lakes, wide and winding rivers, low tundra vegetation, and dark coniferous forests.
Total area is about 9,970,610 km2 (3,849,675 sq. miles).

Population around 30 million.

Capital is Ottawa.

Official languages English and French.

I visited Canada a couple of times during April in 1996.

First I flew to Vancouver.

A few days later I went by bus to Seattle and other U.S. cities, to return later to visit Toronto.

After thoroughly exploring Toronto I went by train to the Canadian Niagara Falls.

During 2002, my wife and I visited Canada during our trip through the Americas.

On this trip we've visited the Niagara Falls, Montreal, Ottawa, Quebec City, Toronto and Vancouver.
