Canada is a federation of ten Provinces and three Territories. The four Maritime Provinces of New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island are influenced by their relationships with the North Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Saint Lawrence. Quebec and Ontario are the most populous Provinces in Canada, while Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta occupy Canada's central prairie heartland. British Columbia, the westernmost Province in Canada, lies between the Rocky Mountains and the North Pacific Ocean. Canada's Territories, consisting of Nunavut, Yukon, and the Northwest Territories, lie to the far north. They have no inherent jurisdiction, and only exercise powers that are delegated to them by Canada's federal government. BBC News - Canada offers an excellent news and information profile of Canada.
