Canada is a nation of woods and water, with a sparsely populated, vast wilderness - a country criss-crossed by road and rail, with most of the population and urban centres located near the Canada/U.S. border. Canada's freshwater resources are the envy of the world. Canadian lakes, and there are over 30,000 of them, are a source of great natural beauty, recreational opportunities, industrial growth, water, food and transportation.
Great Canadian Lakes includes text, images, movie clips and interactive games that outline the histories, ecosystems, First Nations and recreational activities of Bras D'Or (Nova Scotia), Lake Ontario and Lake of the Woods (Ontario), Lake Winnipeg (Manitoba), Kootenay Lake (British Columbia) and Great Slave Lake (Northwest Territories).
