Excerpt

Canadian regions is a geography of Canada. Its purpose is to provide a balanced and up-to-date treatment of the available geographic information. It has been written in the hope that it will prove useful alike to the outsider who wishes to learn about Canada and to the Canadian who wishes to develop a better understanding of his own country.

CANADIAN REGIONS is the work of four authors. By combining the results of their personal observations, researches and teaching experiences, it has been possible to produce a well rounded and authoritative book. Editorial efforts have been directed mainly toward preserving balance in so far as possible, without disturbing the style, organization or emphasis in the various sections.

The statistics are as up-to-date as it was possible to make them at the time of going to press. Some of the data are from the reports of the census of 1941, some from government publications issued at various times during the past decade, while population figures from the preliminary bulletins of the census of 1951 have been inserted during proof reading. The student, the teacher of geography, or the man of affairs will always have available the latest edition of the Canada Year Book and will be able to make his own revisions. While accurate data constitute an essential part of geography, it is more important to make correct interpretations and correlations.

This book could not have been compiled without the co-operation and goodwill of numerous persons and organizations in all parts of the country. Among these may be mentioned officials in various departments of the governments of Canada and all ten provinces, municipal officials, boards of trade and chambers of commerce in many towns and cities. Numerous photographs were made available by the National Film Board; the Royal Canadian Air Force; the Photographic Survey Corporation Limited, Toronto, Ontario; Photographic Surveys (Quebec) Limited, Montreal; Canadian National Railways; Canadian Pacific Railways; Experimental Farms Services; Provincial Publicity Bureau, Quebec; British Columbia Travel Bureau . . .
