Canadian Geography Trivia Questions

1. Which province has the lowest highest peak?

From Quiz
The Highest Canadian Points

Answer: Prince Edward Island

Prince Edward Island is Canada's smallest province and lies on the east coast of the country. It lies in the Gulf of St. Lawrence and is only 5,660 square km in area (3480 square miles). The highest point in this province is only 140 metres (459 feet) above sea level. It is at an unnamed point in the woods in the centre of the province.

2. Which Canadian province or territory has the most rain forests?

From Quiz Canadian Climatic Geography

Answer: British Columbia

Except for a few small seasonal temperate rain forests located on the east coast of Canada, all Canadian rain forests are located in British Columbia. These temperate rain forests are known for their frequently mountainous terrain, wet weather, and moderate annual temperature variations. Although most of these rain forests are located on the Pacific coast and islands, British Columbia also has the world's only inland temperate rain forest known to exist.

3. How many provinces and territories make up Canada?

From Quiz Canada By the Numbers

Answer: Ten provinces and three territories

In 1867, Canada became the first Dominion in the British Empire, with its own government, comprised of an elected House of Commons and an appointed Senate. At that time, Canada had only four provinces - New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Ontario, and Quebec. Manitoba entered confederation in 1870, followed by Prince Edward Island in 1873, British Columbia in 1876, Alberta and Saskatchewan in 1905, and Newfoundland (which included Labrador) in 1949 (Newfoundland's name was changed to Newfoundland and Labrador in 2001). The Northwest Territories entered confederation in 1870, and Yukon in 1898. Nunavut was separated from NWT in 1999, becoming Canada's newest territory. Apart from Prince Edward Island, all the rest of Canada west and north of Ontario was known as the Northwest Territories. Until it voted in favour of joining the Canadian confederation, Newfoundland and Labrador was a British colony.

4. What are the two main types of land farming in Canada?

From Quiz Farming in Canada

Answer: Intensive and Extensive

Intensive farming is usually done in urban areas or where land is expensive. It typically involves small amounts of land, such as in a market garden. Extensive farming is usually done in rural areas or where land is inexpensive. It normally involves big areas of land, such as a cattle farm.

5. Not a count from the last census but where is Seven Persons?

From Quiz Where In Canada Is That?

Answer: Alberta

A translation of the First Nation words "Kitsuki-a-tapi", meaning 7 persons. Name of a local creek where seven Cree were killed in battle.

6. British Columbia has many great rivers, all flowing into the Pacific. Its most famous and largest river does indeed flow into the Pacific, but not while it's in British Columbia. This river is?

From Quiz Ten Provinces -- Ten Questions

Answer: Columbia River

The mighty Columbia delivers 7400 cubic metres of water to the Pacific every second, making it the the most powerful river on the west coast of North America and the second most powerful (after the Mississippi) anywhere in North America. It is the origin of the province's name, but the southern portion of it became part of the United States in 1846, when Columbia was divided between Britain and the U.S. by the Oregon Treaty. The river rises in the Canadian Rockies, but then flows south through the states of Washington and Oregon, finally entering the Pacific near Astoria, Oregon.

7. The SwissAir flight 111 crash happened off the coast of what famous Canadian east coast landmark?

From Quiz East Coast Provinces

Answer: Peggy's Cove , Nova Scotia

Peggy's Cove lighthouse is depicted almost universally as an icon for the province of Nova Scotia. It is situated on a particularly barren piece of shoreline not representative of all the province's coastline. Nova Scotia boasts many miles of white sand beaches and thousands of picturesque tiny islands and inlets.

8. How do you spell the name of Canada's capital?

From Quiz Spelling the Names of Canadian Places

Answer: Ottawa

Ottawa has been Canada's capital since 1867 and has always been spelt Ottawa.

9. Australians are Aussies, and New Zealanders are Kiwis, so what are Canadians?

From Quiz See Canada

Answer: Canucks

Canadians have been Canucks since 1835, evidently, and there is no apparent reason why. However, Canada got its name from the Iroquois word 'kanata' meaning village, and the inhabitants of kanatas were kanuchsas, so maybe Canuck derives from kanuchsa (sounds reasonable). During the Second World War, Leo Buchle created a Canadian comic-strip hero called Johnny Canuck. Johnny Canuck first appeared in the February 1942 issue of Dime Comics. Naturally, he was bent on wiping all Nazis from the face of the earth. Nowadays,I suppose that the most famous Canucks are the members of Vancouver's NHL team.

10. This Canadian province is Canada's easternmost province, it's where the sun first rises on Canada. It has its own time zone. The provincial capital is St. John's.

From Quiz An Unusual Cross-Canada Tour

Answer: Newfoundland and Labrador

Cape Breton Island is not a part of Newfoundland, but listen to its raucous fiddle music and you'll vote it should be. Newfoundland has been proudly holding on to Labrador since 1927 just to annoy Quebec.

11. This Canadian city can boast of having the world's highest per capita consumption of Slurpees.

From Quiz Canadian

From December to February, the average daytime HIGH temperature is about -10 degrees Celsius (figure out Farenheit for yourself). That's without the windchill.

22. Where is the only remaining walled city in Canada?

From Quiz Canadian Geography 101

Answer: Quebec City, QC

Quebec City is the capital of the province of Quebec. It is the only remaining walled city in North America north of Mexico. This helped to have it recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1985. The city lies at the confluence of the St. Lawrence and Saint-Charles rivers, about 240 kilometres northeast of Montreal. The St. Lawrence River narrows near Montreal, making it impossible for large ocean-going freighters to travel past that city. Instead, many of the large ships travel to the port at Quebec City. This has resulted in Quebec City being a centre for transatlantic trade in Canada. Quebec City is one of the oldest cities in Canada. It celebrated its 400th anniversary in 2008, having been founded in 1608 by Samuel de Champlain.

23. What Canadian Province is known for being in the shape of a lobster arm and claw?

27. Which two provinces share their highest point?

From Quiz The Highest Canadian Points

Answer: Newfoundland & Labrador and Quebec

This highest point is on the coast of the Labrador Sea in the Torngat mountains. The peak lies on the border between Quebec and Newfoundland and Labrador. At 1652 m (5420 feet) above sea level, the peak is difficult to access. It also lies in a permit-only National Park, so that makes it even more isolated and difficult to get to. The peak has two names. Those in Quebec call it Mont D'Iberville, and those on the Labrador side call it Mount Caubvick. It is the highest peak east of the Rocky Mountains.

28. Canada has more wetlands by area than any other country. Which Canadian province or territory has the most wetlands by area?

From Quiz Canadian Climatic Geography

Answer: Ontario

About one third of Ontario's topography is classified as wetlands. Southern Ontario does have some wetlands, but many of them were drained for agricultural and urban land use. Estimates for the loss of wetlands in southern Ontario range from seventy to ninety percent. Most wetlands are therefore in northern Ontario, particularly in the western James Bay and south western Hudson Bay watersheds. These areas are sparsely populated, and are not considered viable for agriculture, so it is unlikely these wetlands will ever be drained unless continued global warming makes these areas more desirable for settlement in the upcoming centuries.

29. What was the population of Canada in 1951?

From Quiz Canada By the Numbers

Answer: Fourteen million

The 1951 census was the first to include the population of the province of Newfoundland and Labrador, which became part of Canada in 1949. It should be noted that Canada's aboriginal people were not included in the census until 1971. There are three distinct groups of aboriginal peoples: First Nations peoples, Metis (European-First Nations mix) and Inuit, and they comprise approximately 3.8% of the Canadian population.

30. In the early 21st century, approximately what percentage of Canadians were farmers?

From Quiz Farming in Canada

Answer: Less than 3%

Nearly 100 years ago, more than 80% of Canadians farmed because Canada was still being developed. In the modern day, fewer people farm because of advanced technology that saves manpower.
