New Canadian Atlas Online Navy thematic

To commemorate the 100th anniversary of Canada’s Navy, The Canadian Atlas Online has created a new thematic module on our seafaring forces. Launched in March, it includes a special interactive map that profiles 372 vessels named after Canadian communities, regions and First Nations, a tradition that began in the first half of the 20th century as a way of unifying the country.

The module, produced in partnership with the Canadian Navy, features a variety of topics, including the history and traditions of the Navy, the types of vessels currently in use, ranks and responsibilities, training and a section on life in the Regular Force and the Naval Reserve. In addition to the online resources, the Canadian Council for Geographic Education is preparing lesson plans that will be available to high school teachers in the fall.
