This map shows the five ocean drainage areas in Canada, the major river basins, the internal drainage areas and the diverted drainage areas. A drainage basin, sometimes called a watershed, is an area where all surface water shares the same drainage outlet. Surface water consists of the tiny trickles of water flowing on the surface of the earth that develop into larger streams and eventually combine to form a river. The boundary of a watershed is called a drainage divide.
Historical Indian Treaties
This map shows Indian treaties that were negotiated between 1725 and 1930. Treaties are agreements between two or more nations that create mutually binding obligations.
