The Geographies of Canada


Edited By Rémy Tremblay and Hugues Chicoine

This book offers an extensive and detailed look at the geographies of Canada, one of the largest countries in the world. The contributors consider subjects such as energy, resources, the rise of communications and the knowledge infrastructure, and the ever-expanding socio-cultural context in the twenty-first century, due to increased immigration from non-Anglophone or non-Francophone countries and communities. The volume is set against the historical background of Canada where distances are significant both in physical and symbolic terms.
Each chapter of the book includes review questions that will help instructors to outline student work plans and spark interest in issues such as landscape, politics and change. The volume provides a thorough introduction to Canada while also touching upon contemporary geographical issues.
