This data provides the integrated cadastral framework for the specified Canada Land. The cadastral framework consists of active and superseded cadastral parcel, roads, easements, administrative areas, active lines, points and annotations.

This map shows the distribution of the Aboriginal population (including Indians, Métis and Inuit) in comparison to the location of forests. More than a quarter of the Aboriginal population live in urban centres located outside the forested areas; however, nearly 80% of the Aboriginal communities are located in forested areas. Forests play an essential role in the lives of Aboriginal People.
Increases in population, urbanisation and the development of the road network have replaced large forested lands and have created pressures on the remaining forests (or woodlands). Three principal Canadian forested regions have been most affected by these events: the Windsor-Québec corridor, the Prairies and the south-west of British Columbia.
Canada's Model Forest Program is an initiative to build partnerships towards achieving sustainable forest management. The network is composed of eleven model forests. Each model forest is a hands-on laboratory in which leading-edge techniques are researched, developed, applied and monitored. These forests are an example of sustainable forest management.
Approximately 7.6% of Canada's forest land is located in protected areas. Over 95% of protected forests are totally protected and the rest reflect degrees of human intervention such as logging, mining and agriculture. This map shows all the protected areas in Canada.
