To celebrate its 85th anniversary, The Royal Canadian Geographical Society has partnered with publisher Harper Collins Canada to create the new Canadian Geographic Atlas of Canada, its first such atlas in a decade.

Supporting geographic education has been one of the Society’s principal missions since its inception, and this new project goes a long way toward supporting that goal. Besides authoritative reference maps, the atlas includes essays by a number of Canadian luminaries, investigations into multiple facets of the country — from wildlife to climate to economy — and detailed provincial and territorial breakdowns. It looks at the nation’s past, examines and celebrates its present and begins to chart its future.

The atlas is available in bookshops and online from Oct. 28.
