With just 13 provinces and territories covering a larger area than all the 50 states to the south and west, you might guess that most of Canada’s population is well spread out.
Starting on the east coast, the smallest province is Prince Edward Island, otherwise known as PEI. PEI, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia are known as the Maritimes. Together with Newfoundland, they make up the Atlantic provinces.
Bordering the Maritimes to the west is Quebec, a province that is highly influenced by its french heritage. Quebec’s neighbour to the west is Ontario, the seat of Canadian government and the most populated province.
Ontario is very diverse and offers world class attractions in Canada’s largest city of Toronto, to the majesty of Niagara Falls to the wilderness of Algonquin Park.
Quebec and Ontario stretch from the United States hundreds of miles north to Hudson Bay, an arm of the Arctic Ocean, as does Manitoba, the first of Canada’s prairie provinces. Churchill, Manitoba is famous worldwide for its polar bear viewing, even though it’s much farther south than where polar bears live in Alaska.
The Canadian Prairies known for its grasslands stretching into the never ending blue skies, is home to some of the largest areas of natural grasslands, where buffalo, cattle and pronghorn still roam. They’re mostly in the south, forming part of the Great Plains that stretch across the United States into Texas.
With a spectacular natural landscape and a vibrant and diverse culture, British Columbia is one of the world’s great year-round Canada travel destinations. British Columbia resembles California in that it is mountainous, borders the Pacific Ocean, and has an overall mild climate.
The northern provinces, or territories as they are called, consist of Yukon Territory, Northwest Territories and Nunavut, Canada’s newest territory. They offer unique Canada travel experiences not found elsewhere including viewing the Northern Lights.
