The Atlas is an educational tool designed to help build a renewed, nation-to-nation relationship by highlighting the history and the communities of Indigenous Peoples in Canada. It will be available in multiple formats, including a print atlas, an interactive online website, a giant floor map for schools, tiled maps for downloading, plastic-coated maps for frequent consultation, poster maps and a classroom app. Teaching guides and lessons plans will help connect the content with curricula, as will dedicated issues of Canadian Geographic and Géographica

Official launch of the Canadian Geographic’s long-awaited Indigenous Peoples Atlas of Canada.
