The Great Canadian Electricity Map
The Great Canadian Electricity Giant Floor Map highlights the diversity of energy sources in Canada and the complexity of energy production and transmission across the Canadian landscape. It also contains information about innovative careers in the electricity sector, from generation, transmission, and distribution, to energy efficiency, smart systems, manufacturing, and all levels of the supply chain. We hope that this resource inspires you and your students to take part in powering positive change for a greener future!

Discover our Indigenous resources
#ExploreCan is a program created by Canadian Geographic Education in partnership with Exploring by the Seat of Your Pants and Heritage Canada. There are learning resources and recorded virtual talks available for K-12 Canadian educators. Themes focus on treaties in Canada, science, environmental stewardship, and more, with a larger focus on truth and reconciliation woven throughout the entire program.
Paths to Reconciliation
This website features an interactive map that charts residential schools not recognized by the federal government’s Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement as well as unmarked burial sites associated with residential schools. It includes links to a series of firsthand accounts and related original-source materials from survivors and family members of survivors of these schools, as well as a film, a feature story in Canadian Geographic, a poster map, educational resources, and more.
Indigenous Peoples Atlas of Canada
One of the biggest and most important projects that the Society has undertaken to-date is the Indigenous Peoples Atlas of Canada. Recognizing that the stories were not ours to tell, the RCGS, Canadian Geographic, and Can Geo Education collaborated with a number of Indigenous and ally organizations and educators from across Canada to create this extraordinary atlas and its accompanying educational materials.
