Around Canada in 150 Days

In celebration of Canada's 150th birthday 'Canada C3' is sailing coast to coast from Toronto to Victoria via the Northwest Passage. The expedition set sail from Toronto on June 1st and will arrive in Victoria on October 28th.

You can follow the expedition live on the Canada C3 interactive map. The map shows the live position of the Canada C3 ship and the track of its journey around Canada and through the Northwest Passage. The map also includes information about each leg of the journey and the stops the ship will make on the expedition.

The map contains a number of layers which allow you to view the population density of Canada, UNESCO World Heritage and National Historic Sites and a number of layers about the Canadian environment.

Canadian Geographic are celebrating Canada's 150th birthday with a map of great Canadian songs. The Great Canadian Song Map features songs about Canada on an interactive Google Map.

On July 1, 1867 the colonies of Canada (Ontario and Quebec), Nova Scotia and New Brunswick were united as the 'Dominion of Canada'. The Canadian Geographic map celebrates the occasion by featuring YouTube videos of songs by Canadian artists such as Neil Young and the Barenaked Ladies.
