The country’s geography is very diverse, and several of Canada’s conservation areas are on UNESCO’s World Heritage list. The country can be roughly divided into seven areas, with different landscapes and climates. Canada has a total coastline of 96 089 km, the longest in the world. The country is divided into ten provinces and three major territories.

Canada has several mountain ranges, including the Appalachian Mountains, Rocky Mountains and Coastal Mountains. The largest waterways are the St. Lawrence River and the Great Lakes in the south, where the famous Niagara Falls are located. The Canadian shield, which covers almost half of the country’s area, is seen as the core of the North American continent. This is a mountainous area of ​​rivers, which provides the basis for the country’s hydropower production. The large prairie areas of the Midwest are used for agriculture. Tundra in the north, and areas of ice all year round, form Arctic Canada.

Canada’s environmental problems have long been pollution and acid rain. There are a number of problems associated with the extraction of oil sands. For example, toxins such as arsenic and mercury have leaked into rivers. Overfishing in the 1990s threatened several species, and fish stocks have not yet reached the same level as in 1980. Global warming means that fewer sea areas are ice covered, and researchers also warn that forest fires could become a threat in the future because of dry weather.


The first people came to the country along a land bridge over the Bering Strait, between Russia and Alaska, about 30,000 years ago. The Inuit people’s ancestors spread over the northern areas.

Englishmen discovered Canada in the late 15th century. French expeditions hit the ground, and the first French colony, New France, was created in 1604. The colonists’ conquests, and new diseases, caused the number of foreigners to decline rapidly. In 1755, the seven-year war broke out, between the French and British colonists, which led to Canada coming under British rule. Canada was divided into two areas: the Protestant English Upper Canada and the Catholic French Lower Canada. A rebellion led to Upper and Lower Canada being merged into the province of Canada in 1840. The British decided to establish a federal state with their own parliament and at the same time gained autonomy, as the first colony in the British Commonwealth

Canada became a member of the League of Nations in 1919, taking full control of its own affairs in 1926. In the 1931 Westminster Treaty, the United Kingdom confirmed that its parliament no longer had any power over Canada. The Nunavut Territory was established in 1999; Inuit then gained autonomy in one fifth of Canada’s area.

Society and politics

Canada is a constitutional monarchy and a federal state. Power is shared between a federal government and ten state governments with a high degree of internal self-government. The British monarch is the head of state, represented in the country by a Governor General. The executive power lies with the prime minister and the government. Parliament has the legislative power and consists of the House of Representatives and the Senate. Canada has a parliamentary system, which means that the government is based on the majority in parliament. Government power in Canada alternates between the Liberal Party and various Conservative parties.

Canada is one of the most developed countries in the world, but has in recent years fallen on the UN rankings, due to increasing pay gaps. Many indigenous people live in poverty and depend on government contributions. The unemployment rate for the indigenous population is twice as high as for the rest of the population, and the level of wages is considerably lower. Important political issues are therefore to improve the conditions of the indigenous people, and to reduce the differences between the poor and the rich. Terrorism legislation has also been a contentious issue, as many believe it is a threat to freedom of expression and legal certainty.

The French-speaking province of Québec has long had a strong desire for independence. The wish led to a referendum in 1980 and 1995, but until now the area has remained part of Canada.

Economics and Commerce

Canada is a prosperous country and has large amounts of natural resources, a well-educated workforce and high-tech industry. About ten percent of the world’s forests are located in Canada, and the country has vast mineral resources such as gold, nickel, uranium and lead. Traditionally, the forest, oil, gas and mining industries, as well as fishing, have been important trade routes, but the importance of these industries is diminishing. The service sector has become the most important part of the economy, employing four out of five Canadians. Agriculture still plays an important role, even though only one percent work in the industry.

Unemployment has gradually declined since the financial crisis, and is now at its lowest level since the 1970s. However, there are large regional differences, and unemployment among young people is high.

Due to a relatively small domestic market, foreign trade has always been important to the Canadian economy. Mining and oil and gas extraction still generate large export revenues. The United States is Canada’s most important trading partner, followed by China. With the NAFTA Free Trade Agreement, trade with Mexico has become increasingly important.
