The provinces and territories of Canada are subdivided according to different schemes. Some provinces are subdivided into counties, others by section, township, and range. The subdivisions used on this site may or may not reflect the natural division used by the residents of the province, or by genealogists doing research. The data resources used to construct the information determine how the places are subdivided.

The map of Canada was copied from a public domain image contributed to WikiPedia by user "E Pluribus Anthony". The place links rely on coordinates gathered from the Geographical Names of Canada database.
