HISTORY Canada is a North American country consisting of ten provinces and three territories. It is the world's second largest country by total area. The land that is now Canada was inhabited for millennia by various groups of Aboriginal peoples. Canada is a federation that is governed as a parliamentary democracy and a constitutional monarchy with Queen Elizabeth II as its head of state. It is a bilingual nation with both English and French as official languages at the federal level.
Geography Canada occupies a major northern portion of North America. By total area (including its waters), Canada is the second-largest country in the world—after Russia. Canada also has the longest coastline in the world: 202,080 kilometres. Canada has more lakes than any other country. Canada is also geologically active, having many earthquakes and potentially active volcanoes.
