Want to learn more about Canada while keeping it local and having some fun? Join Canadian Geographic Education for Map Mondays, where you can walk across Canada in moments and learn more than you can imagine on one of our famous Giant Floor Maps. As big as half the size of a school gymnasium at about 35 feet long and 26 feet wide, the maps give everyone the opportunity to discover more about Canada in a very up close and personal way. Every other Monday starting June 24th, we will showcase a different and spectacular aspect of Canadian geography. From national parks and historic sites to an Arctic-focused view of the world to learning about the history, languages, and cultures of Indigenous Peoples in Canada on a map that has no borders, there is something for everyone.

Our staff will be on hand to help you interpret the maps. Join us. We promise you’ll have fun and discover new things. Here is the lineup: Indigenous Peoples Atlas Of Canada (IPAC): June 24 This groundbreaking map was created in partnership with Indigenous educators and organizations to tell the story of Indigenous Peoples in Canada. The map does not show provincial or international borders, but rather the traditional territories of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples and the distribution of Indigenous languages spoken in Canada today, including Inuktut, Mohawk, Cree, Coast Salish, Dene, and Mi’kmaq. Indigenous communities, reserves, and residential schools are also marked on the map, providing insights into the impacts of colonialism — in particular the residential school system — on Indigenous peoples.
  Parks Canada Map: July 8 Still planning your summer getaway? Why not consider a trip to one of Parks Canada’s 171 historic sites, 29 marine conservation areas, or 47national parks, all shown on this map. If you’re passionate about nature, history, and conservation, this map is for you. Drawn to Victory: July 22 A successful war effort depends on reliable maps, so it’s perhaps no surprise that the years surrounding the First World War saw the greatest advances in the field of cartography since the invention of the printing press. Explore this period of innovation on our Drawn to Victory giant floor map, which depicts the Western Front and highlights major battles with Canadian involvement. Polar Knowledge Map: Aug 5 Not everyone can travel to the Arctic, so we developed this Arctic circumpolar map to give Canadians the chance to view their country from the top of the world.
This map highlights animal migration routes in the Arctic, and demonstrates how modern communication systems and new technologies are helping people in the North stay connected to the rest of the world. The Polar Knowledge map also provides an introduction to how climate change is impacting the people and wildlife that make the Arctic their home. CPAC Route 338: Aug 19 In just a few months, Canadians will be going to the polls to vote in the next federal election. Developed in partnership with the Cable Public Affairs Channel (CPAC), this map is a great primer for anyone interested in learning more about Canadian politics and elections. Canada is the world’s second largest democracy, geographically speaking, with a population of over 36 million. The Route 338 map shows the locations of Canada’s 338 federal ridings, and explains the careful consideration that is given to both human and physical geography in determining the boundaries of electoral districts.
Exploring the Route 338 map is a great way to start a discussion about what makes democracy work in Canada.
