Contained within the 4th Edition (1974) of the Atlas of Canada is a map that shows the geological provinces and some of their principal sub-divisions. There are orogenic elements as well as major fault lines which are also displayed. A geological province is an extensive region with distinctive characteristics that differentiate it from surrounding areas.

Lithospheric-probing magnetotelluric (MT) data at a total of 20 sites acquired along an approximately east–west 300-km-long profile across the Wopmay orogen in the Northwest Territories, Canada, provide electrical resistivity models of the boundary between the Archean Slave craton and the adjacent Proterozoic Bear Province.

In the eastern Ogilvie Mountains, geological mapping (1:50,000) was undertaken on map sheets 116A/10 and 11, which straddle the boundary between the Foreland and Omineca belts of the Cordilleran Orogen. The area is underlain by a diverse assemblage of epicontinental and miogeoclinal sediementary, and subordinate volcanic and intrusive rocks, ranging in age from Early Proterozoic to Triassic. These rocks represent most of the geological history of the northern Cordilleran miogeocline and its supracrustal basement.

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).

In 2001 and 2002 magnetotelluric (MT) measurements were made on Baffin Island, Nunavut. The surveys were undertaken as part of the GSC's multidisciplinary Central Baffin project to study the northern margin of the Paleoproterozoic Trans-Hudson Orogen.
