Canada, which with the United States has the longest undefended border in the world, is rich in natural resources, mountains and lakes, and the boreal forest. The boreal is a largely unspoiled wilderness of interconnected forests, river valleys, wetlands, and tundra extending from Newfoundland and Labrador in the east to the Yukon in the west. Canada manages the magnificent Arctic region, along with Russia, Greenland and the United States.

By the numbers
  • 1.2 billion number of acres of Canadian boreal forest

  • 9 marine protected areas designated, including two in the Arctic, totaling almost 1.4 percent of its waters, with a goal of protecting 10 percent of its ocean territory by 2020

  • 68% share of Canada's coastline that borders the Arctic Ocean
