Canada’s landscape is very diversified and comprises several distinctive areas, called physiographic regions, each of which has its own topography and geology. The physical geography of Canada comprises two great parts: the Shield and the Borderlands. The Shield consists of a core of old, massive, Precambrian crystalline rocks. The Borderlands areas are formed by younger rocks and surround the Shield like two rings.
This map shows the location of the Arctic physiographic regions which include the Innuitian Region, the Arctic Lowlands and the Arctic Coastal Plains.
This map shows the location of the Interior Plains physiographic region. The Interior Plains occupy the region between the Shield on the east and the mountains of the Cordilleran Region on the west. They join with the St. Lawrence Lowlands of eastern Canada through the United States and are separated from the Arctic Lowlands by the Amundsen Gulf.

The Shield consists of a core of old, massive, Precambrian crystalline rocks and covers half the country including most of Quebec and Ontario, the majority of Nunavut and Manitoba and all of northern Saskatchewan and eastern Northwest Territories. The Borderlands regions are formed by younger rocks and surround the Shield. The Borderlands' 7 physiographic regions include: the Appalachians in Atlantic Canada, the St. Lawrence Lowlands in southern Quebec and Ontario, the Interior Plains in central and northern Canada, The Cordillera in Western Canada and 3 arctic regions: Arctic Coastal Plain, Arctic Lowlands and Innuitian.
The data is organized by: * open and secure youth centres/youth facilities * gender * former Youth Justice Services Division regions (Eastern Region, Northern Region, Western Region and Central Region)

This map shows the location of the Cordilleran physiographic region. The Cordilleran Region is divided into three large linear zones called the Eastern System, the Interior System and the Western System. Each system is further divided into areas and subdivided into mountains, ranges, plateaus, hills, valleys, trenches, basins and plains. Each has its own geological and physiographic characteristics.
