Maritime or Atlantic ProvincesAtlantic Canada - consists of the provinces of Newfoundland, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island Cod fishing - mainstay of its economy ever since earliest settlement The Grand Banks - east of this region, have long been a rich source of fish harvest because of the mixing of warm waters from the south and cold from the north. Recently, the Banks have become so over-fished that they have lost their capacity to support the region's fishing population. ©2012, TESCCC
Core Provinces Ontario and Quebec - the two provinces which make up the core of Canadian settlement and political influence. Two-thirds of Canada's population lives in this region. The margins of the St. Lawrence River and the Great Lakes make up the areas of primary settlement and industrial activity. Ontario- strongly British, and Quebec is powerfully French in its cultural flavor, with 80% of the Quebec population of French origin. ©2012, TESCCC
Prairie Provinces Prairie region - made up of Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta. Wheat, petroleum, and coal - major economic resources Major urban centers include Edmonton, Calgary, and Winnipeg. These centers provide linkage east and west with other major Canadian regions and also to the North. ©2012, TESCCC
Western Province Western Frontier - centered in Vancouver, British Columbia, at the mouth of the Fraser River. More than one-half of the province's population lives in the Vancouver area, which is the region's main industrial, administrative, financial, and cultural center. Vancouver is home to the second largest Chinatown in North America. Shares many of the same characteristics at the Pacific Northwest of the U.S. ©2012, TESCCC
