Contained within the 3rd Edition (1957) of the Atlas of Canada is a map that shows the electrical generating network in Eastern Canada circa 1954. Generating plants are shown as either developed waterpower sites (in other words, hydro plants), or as fuel electric plants (thermal plants). The plants are portrayed on the basis of their capacity, measured in horsepower. The map also shows transmission lines of 60 000 volts or higher.

This map depicts the 77 electrical generating plants operated by forest-based industries. These industries are defined using the North American Industrial Classification. These plants are scattered throughout Canada, and are about equally divided between being hydro or thermal plants.

A generating station is an industrial facility built and operated to generate electricity. The map shows the 916 generating stations (power plants) operating in 2007. There were 479 hydroelectric stations, 375 thermal plants (combustion, internal combustion and steam), 7 nuclear plants, 54 wind turbines and 1 tidal power plant.

This map shows the 815 generating stations with a capacity of 500 kilowatts or greater classed by the principal fuel used. Two fuels are dominant: water power (hydro-electricity) and petroleum products. The pattern of hydro plants across Canada is partly explained by Canada's geology: areas that are either rugged or mountainous should have more good sites for these plants than do flat-lying areas. The geology map of Canada has been added here confirms this: it shows that the Canadian Shield (rugged) and Orogen areas (mountainous areas) do have many more hydro stations than do platforms (flat-lying areas).

This map shows the 815 generating stations with a capacity of 500 kilowatts or greater, classed by the type of company operating them. Most plants are operated by utilities, but nearly one-quarter of all plants are operated by other industries. All three industries identified in the map legend are involved in natural resource processing.

The 54 plants are operated by a wide variety of industries. Plants run by these industries tend to be fairly small (the largest is 38 000 kilowatts). They also tend to be found in cities. By type, these plants are a mix of hydro and thermal stations.

Contained within the 3rd Edition (1957) of the Atlas of Canada is a map that shows six condensed maps of the distribution of manufacturing plants for industries which use metal as their primary raw material circa 1954. The specific map titles are: Railway Rolling Stock, Motor Vehicles and Agricultural Machinery, Electrical Apparatus and Supplies, Aircraft and Parts, Motor Vehicle Parts, and Other Machinery. For each map, there are dots (or symbols representing many dots in a single locality) showing the location of a single factory. Each map also has two summary charts associated with it.

Contained within the 4th Edition (1974) of the Atlas of Canada is a map that shows, for Western Canada, locations of electrical generating stations, the installed generating capacity of rivers and thermal stations, installed capacity in kilowatts and whether the generating station is hydro-electric, conventional or nuclear. Service areas of major electric power suppliers as of 1968 are also denoted.
