is a land of diversity and extremes. The country stretches from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean and from the USA border to the Arctic Ocean. In the west are the Rocky Mountains and coastal cities of Vancouver
and Victoria. Just east of the Rockies are the prairies, home to places like Calgary, Regina, and Winnipeg. Further east is the most populated region, the province of Ontario with the national capital city of Ottawa
and largest city, Toronto
. Beyond Ontario is the French speaking province of Quebec, well known for Montreal
and Quebec City. The Maritime Provinces along the Atlantic include Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Newfoundland, and the small island of Prince Edward Island. The northern territories are more sparsely populated but offer their own unique sites and attractions.
