MAPSóCANADIANóCan you tell me where I can get maps of Canada, giving lakes, streams, trails, portages, etc.?
Canada is too large a country to be shown in detail on one map, and even an entire province cannot be shown on one sheet. You can get very accurate, large scale sectional maps, from the Department of the Interior, Ottawa, Canada. These show all of the lakes and streams except the very smallest, and on canoe routes everything is shown, portages marked and length stated, etc. The trouble is to know what map to ask for. Perhaps the best way is to mention some lake or stream that you are sure is in the territory you are interested in, and ask for the sheet showing that part, and the next sheet cast, or west. When you get these you will find that they are numbered, and by having two, you can see bow the numbers run, so that if you want to get additional ones you will know what numbers to ask for. There appears to be no charge for these, anyway they have never charged me for them, but it is best to enclose a little coin.
