Canadian Landscape

Located in the northern portion of North America Canada has a total area of 9,984,670 making it the second largest country in the world.

Canada's southern territories run alongside the entire northern boundary of the continental United States. From there Canada stretches north to the Arctic Ocean, east to the Atlantic Ocean, and west to the Pacific Ocean, giving Canada the longest coastline in the world!

Although Canada is the second largest country in the world it’s population is rather small for its size with only 34 million people, in contrast to 145 million in Russia, the largest country in the world.
