Canada Then and Now: Maps of the Nation's Growth 1867-1982

This folder contains three new maps produced by Energy, Mines and Resources Canada. They portray the early geography of Canada and the progressive evolution of provincial and territorial boundaries, culminating with Canada as it is today.

Canada - Confederation Scale: 1:7 500 000
The beginnings of Canada in 1867 are shown on this map. Names of cities, towns and villages, and the populations of the time are depicted, long with development of rail and road networks and important trails leading West. Major trading posts are also highlighted.

Canada - Territorial Evolution Scale: 1:7 500 000
Witness the country's evolution and important boundary changes through a colourful scheme showing the progressive growth and development of Canada. A useful chronological table outlines the dates and events connected with this growth.

Canada Scale: 1:7 500 000
This map showing Canada in 1982 is the most modern small-scale map of the nation in recent years; it is a must for anyone who wants a good general-purpose map. The relief of the land, principal topography and information on the depths of the seas around Canada are shown. You will appreciate the fine delineation of the most important place names, transportation routes, major national parks, lakes, rivers and glaciers.

These beautiful maps measuring 90 x 80 centimeters are available in separate English and French versions; convenient for table top reference but also very suitable for wall display and framing.
Published by the Department of Energy, Mines and Resources, 1982.
