Summary
Abstract: The Atlas Map Collection provides coverage of the entire Canadian landmass.
This collection contains base maps, maps of the National Atlas of Canada, 5th
edition and other thematic maps prepared by the Atlas of Canada. These maps
depict Canada's social, economic, environmental and cultural fabric. A World
map is also included in this series. The Atlas of Canada no longer sells maps
directly to the public. We recommend the purchase of Atlas of Canada maps from
any of over 900 map dealers across Canada, the United States and overseas.
