More Fun Facts - Canada's North, it's not just all snow by Jessica E. Subject

Hello peeps! It's finally Spring here in Canada! Yay! Although meteorologists are calling for colder temps and that yucky white stuff overnight and into tomorrow. *cringe* Anyway, it's just one day. I'll get through it.

At the end of March, Kacey shared with you some fun facts about Canada. Well, I'm here to share more, but I'm focusing on Northern Canada today. Why? Well, it has to do with my most recent release under my other name, Paisley Brown.

1. Baffin Island, located in Nunavut, is the largest island in Canada and the fifth largest island in the world at 195,928 sq mi (507,451 km²) in size.

2. In the winter, the Dempster Highway (Dawson City, Yukon to Inuvik, Northwest Territories) extends another 194 km to Tuktoyaktuk when portions of the Mackenzie Delta freeze over.

3. Canada's highest point (5959m ~ 19541ft) is Mount Logan, located in Kluane National Park in the southwestern part of the Yukon.

4. There are eight officially recognized languages of the Northwest Territories: English, French, Inuktitut, Cree, Dogrib, Gwich'in, Chipewyan, and Slavey. Citizens of the Northwest Territories have a right to any of the above languages when receiving services from the government, in court, and in proceedings involving legislature.

5. The DEW Line or "Distant Early Warning Line", was a system of radars that were spread across the Arctic portion of Canada. These were used to detect missiles and Soviet bombers, however, when intercontinental ballistic missiles became the main delivery system for nuclear weapons, these radars became outdated. Since the end of the Cold War in 1990, these stations are rarely used for any significant purpose.

6. Alert, located at 82 degrees 28'N, 62 degrees 30'W, is the northernmost permanent settlement in the world. It is located on the Northeastern tip of Ellesmere Island in the territory of Nunavut.

7. Nunavut became Canada's third territory on April 1, 1999. It is the largest territory and makes up one fifth of the Canada's land mass.

8. Snag, Yukon holds the record for the coldest temperature ever recorded in Canada -63 degrees Celsius (-81F). This was recorded on February 3, 1957.

9. The largest non-polar ice field in the world can be found in the St. Elias Mountains, Yukon Territory. It covers an area of 40 570 square kilometers of which 16,900 square kilometers are located in Canada, the remainder being in Alaska.

10. Two of the largest lakes in the world are found in the Northwest Territories – Great Bear Lake and Great Slave Lake.

Although my latest release doesn't take place in Northern Canada, it does take place above the Arctic Circle, where the Aurora Borealis are beautiful.

  1. I'd love to see the Aurora Borealis live and in person one day. But I don't want it to be cold. Lol.

    1. Me, too, Nana. I don't mind the cold to a certain extent, but I wouldn't want to be up North in January or February.
