The second-largest country in the world, Canada is located in North America, directly above the contiguous United States. A land of vast distances and rich natural resources, Canada became a self-governing dominion in 1867 while retaining ties to Great Britain. This nation has developed economically and technologically at approximately the same pace as the U.S., and one of its main problems is Quebec s relationship to the remainder of the country.

Providing a fascinating glimpse of our neighbors to the North, Canada is an ideal guide for anyone looking to learn more about this country. Covering everything from geography to people, from environment to economy, this book offers practical information in an accessible format. Case studies highlight important locations, industries, and people, and numerous photographs, maps, and illustrations add to this engaging reference. Additional resources include a glossary of key terms, a list of books and Web sites for further information, and a comprehensive index.
