Our vast wilderness

A lot of foreigners are truly amazed when they discover just how large Canada is. “I’m coming to Toronto for a week in December—I’ll have time to see the Rockies, right?” is a question that actually gets asked. With 10 provinces and three territories, Canada is not only the second largest country by land mass, but it also features a wicked amount untouched nature. Canada is home to the most lakes in the world, which is 20 percent of the earth’s freshwater resources. Likewise, more than half of Canada is covered in trees, which amounts to about 10 percent of the world’s forests.
