Contained within the 3rd Edition (1957) of the Atlas of Canada is a map that shows four condensed maps of non-ferrous metal mines, including refineries, smelters and reduction works that were in production or coming into production in Eastern Canada circa 1955. As production figures for individual mines were not available, an attempt was made to convey their relative importance by showing the ore mill capacities. The metallurgical industries associated with non-ferrous metal mining convert most of the ore produced into metal in Canada but there were some exceptions. No lithium metal was produced in Canada, while the product of the lithium mine in Quebec was shipped as spodumene concentrates; similarly, the product of the molybdenum mine in Quebec was shipped as molybdenum concentrates.

Contained within the 4th Edition (1974) of the Atlas of Canada is a map that shows location, type of operation and type of metal for non-ferrous metal production plants in Eastern Canada. The map is accompanied by several graphs showing the proportional values of non-ferrous metals contained in ores, the value of production of non-ferrous metals from domestic ores, smelting and refining capacities and value of aluminum production from imported ore for 1970.

Contained within the 3rd Edition (1957) of the Atlas of Canada is a plate that shows 20 different maps of principal minerals across Canada, circa 1955. The maps were compiled from information supplied by the Mines Branch of the Department of Mines and Technical Surveys. Usually, the principal occurrences have been indicated but where these are very numerous only the areas in commercial production are shown. It should, therefore, be noted that not all of the principal occurrences are actually mined.

This map depicts the 6 ferrous-metal mines that operated for any period during 2003. Ferrous-metal mines produce iron ore, niobium and tantalum, all used in the production of steel and steel alloys. Only Newfoundland and Labrador, Quebec and Manitoba have ferrous-metal mines. The locations of 16 steel-production facilities, 3 iron-agglomerate plants and 4 ferroalloy plants are shown to provide an industrial context for ferrous-metal mining activity.

Contained within the 3rd Edition (1957) of the Atlas of Canada is a plate that shows six condensed maps of the distribution of plants producing the following: leather footwear, womens and childrens factory made clothing, synthetic textiles and silks, mens factory made clothing, cotton textiles, and rubber products. All data for these maps is for 1954 with the exception of the rubber products map which is for 1955. Each map is accompanied by a bar graph and pie chart. The bar graphs show the value of production by major categories of products.

Contained within the 3rd Edition (1957) of the Atlas of Canada is a plate that shows four condensed maps of both Vancouver and Victoria. The first two maps display stages of urban growth for Vancouver, for periods ranging from 1886 to 1956 and Victoria, for periods ranging from 1851 to 1955. The two remaining maps show the extent and classification of land use for 1955 for both of these cities. The urban growth maps represent the expansion of areas occupied by structures, yet the small open areas classified as parks and playgrounds on the land-use maps are also included.

Contained within the 3rd Edition (1957) of the Atlas of Canada is a map that shows a map with four condensed maps comparing Quebec City and Montreal. The first two maps show stages of urban growth for Quebec City for periods ranging from 1608 to 1955 and Montreal for periods ranging from 1642 to 1955. The urban growth maps on the other two maps, represent the expansion of areas occupied by structures, yet the small open areas classified as parks and playgrounds on the land-use maps are also included. These two remaining maps show the extent and classification of land use for 1955 for both of these cities.
