Web Links

These Web sites will provide you with background information.


Web Links

Parks Canada

The Parks Canada Web site provides links to all of Canada's national parks, by province and territory. In Quebec, students can find out more about La Mauricie National Park. They can also look for other national parks in the Canadian Shield through the Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, and Northwest Territories links. The site also provides a Teacher Guide section with ongoing activities, programs, and competitions.

Northern Wilderness
The Web site by Ontario Tourism is an excellent source of information about northern Ontario. Links include destination information, travel guides, postcards and images, and vacation ideas. Encourage students to visit the tourism Web sites for the other provinces and territories that make up the Canadian Shield to find similar information about traveling in those parts of the Shield.
