    Where is Canada located?

    On the map


    Canada is a large state by area (second in the world after Russia), which is located in the northern part of America. Alaska’s western neighbor is the United States.

    From the west, this country is washed by the Pacific Ocean, from the east - by the Atlantic, from the north - by the Arctic.

    Considering where Canada is located, it is not hard to guess that the climatic conditions in the country are very difficult. Temperature indicators for winter and summer in different parts of the state are different. But in general, we can talk about the harsh long winter, when the air temperature can vary from -15 to -45 degrees, as well as very hot summer, when the thermometer rises from +30 to +40 degrees. The coast of British Columbia and in particular Vancouver Island is considered the most comfortable in terms of climate. Here, the climate is temperate, and therefore winters are mostly mild with rains. That is why this part is the most attractive, desired for immigrants, of whom there are many.

    Administrative divisions are represented by 10 provinces and 3 territories (Yukon, Northwest Territories and Nunavut).

    Favorable geographic location led to substantial natural resources, which made the country one of the leaders in the mining industry. The key role in the economy of the country was played by the raw materials industry, especially logging and oil production. As a result, today Canada is considered one of the most prosperous and wealthy countries in the world with a very high per capita income.

    In addition, the state has a well-developed service sector, tourism. Incredibly beautiful at any time of the year, with grandiose snow-capped mountains, crystal-clear lakes full of fish, amazing forest thickets and nature reserves, Canada is a corner of the world that everyone should see.
