-Every city, town, village, and hamlet of more than 50 residents
-13,000 physical features including roads, railways, waterways
-Status, population, and incorporation of urban centers
-National and provincial parks, military establishments, Indian Reserves, trailer courts
Every population center or physical feature is easily found and identified. All information is based on latest census statistics.
