Geography of Canada

Canada is the world's second largest country after Russia. Canada is thinly populated, however, with much of the land too cold or too mountainous for human settlement most Canadians live within 300km (186 miles) of the southern border. Canada's boundaries span the widest portion of the North America continent, from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean, from the United States along the 49th Parallel in the south to the North Pole, Arctice Ocean and Beaufort Sea in the north. The entire expanse of Canada covers 9,976,140 kmē (Land: 9,220,970 kmē and Water: 755,170 kmē) approximately 1.3 times the size of Australia and over 40 times the size of the United Kingdom.
