While physical and historical geography have traditionally played a central role in the study of Canadian geography, this book gives more weight to the coverage of contemporary economic and social factors which have transformed the spatial fabric of Canada's landscape. The text consists of two sections: the first examines elements and issues that affect the national character of Canada, and the second moves to the regional scene, with chapters on Ontario, Quebec, British Columbia, Western Canada, Atlantic Canada, and the Territorial North.

"The book covers physical, cultural, economic, urban, and historical elements that ground students in many realms of geography. For students who want details the text has [them].
