The Canadian Shield

Canada
By Dmitry Petrounin Dmitry Petrounin Section editor Profile

Discover The Canadian Shield

In the shape of a huge horseshoe, the Shield - a very old chain of eroded mountains - lines Hudson Bay. Limited by the Innuitian Mountains in the north, and the Appalachians in the south, this vast territory covers almost 1.7 million sq mi. Huge forests and innumerable rivers, some of which are used to produce electricity, flourish in this little inhabited region at heart of the country.
