Welcome to a new year of exploration. Again this year we will be traveling across Canada to bring you unique views of the Canadian landscape. We invite you to take a multimedia tour of some of Canada's greatest rivers. Explore the history, ecosystems, culture, recreation and economy of Canadian waterways. Find out more about Canadian river facts and figures, including length and location, natural environment, fish and wildlife, and salmon species, habitat, history, culture and conservation. Learn about Canadian parks, trails and outdoor travel and eco-tourism opportunities for sport fishing, canoeing, whitewater canoeing, kayaking, hiking, cycling, mountain biking, camping, boating and birdwatching. Discover the distinctive First Nations cultures, historical figures and events, heritage and historic sites, museums, festivals and cultural attractions that reflect the spirit and legacy of Canadian rivers from coast to coast.
