June 24, 2019

Join Canadian Geographic Education for Map Mondays, where you can walk across Canada in moments and learn more than you can imagine on one of our famous Giant Floor Maps! Map Mondays will be held at 50 Sussex Drive, the headquarters of The Royal Canadian Geographical Society, Monday, June 24 from 11:30-1pm. Indigenous Peoples Atlas Of Canada (IPAC) This groundbreaking map was created in partnership with Indigenous educators and organizations to tell the story of Indigenous Peoples in Canada. The map does not show provincial or international borders, but rather the traditional territories of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples and the distribution of Indigenous languages spoken in Canada today, including Inuktut, Mohawk, Cree, Coast Salish, Dene, and Mi’kmaq. Indigenous communities, reserves, and residential schools are also marked on the map, providing insights into the impacts of colonialism — in particular, the residential school system — on Indigenous peoples.
