Description

From Native peoples in search of new hunting grounds to European fishermen out for bigger catches, explorers were drawn to Canada for many reasons. They discovered a vast and mysterious land that took hundreds of years to explore and map. But the story of Canadian exploration is about a lot more than mapping wilderness. With no new lands left to discover, present-day explorers focus on outer space, the ocean and the preservation of Earth's changing ecosystems.
