    Why is this featured if it contains unsourced statements? --Oreo Priest18:31, 21 August 2006 (UTC) 1. I removed the request for a source that I added on July 24, 2006. One can confirm the land area for the following countries (based on the data in the infobox for each country): 1. China: 9,641,266 km² * (1 - 0.028) = 9,371,310.552 km² 2. United States: 9,631,420 km² * (1 - 0.0487) = 9,162,369.846 km² 3. Canada: 9,984,670 km² * (1 - 0.0892) = 9,094,037.436 km² 1. I think a list of countries by land area would also be helpful, either as a standalone article or as part of List of countries and outlying territories by area. Hope this helps.

    1 mile = 1.6km, so how is it possible that the area values given in Square Miles are all less than half of the areas given in Square Kilometres? For example, if Canada's total area is 9,984,670km squared, it's total area in miles squared should be 6,240,419mi squared. The actual value given is 3,855,171mi squared.Gh0ti-2 (talk) 15:24, 21 January 2010 (UTC) 1. Because 1 square mile = 2.589 square kilometres; this is because 1.6 has to be squared (1.62=2.6) when discussing area (hence the term square km / mi). You will then find that the math works out quite well. Arsenikk (talk) 17:27, 21 January 2010 (UTC) 1.1. Aha. Thanks for clearing that up - Maths never was my strong suit. Gh0ti-2 (talk) 21:48, 21 January 2010 (UTC) This article needs verification. The use of reference footnoting on the Mi2 columns imply that the conversions were provided by the Government source, but I find no such. The conversions were likely calculated by a Wiki author. As example Alberta lists as having more...

    Perhaps I'm missing something obvious here, but surely each of the provinces (other than Alberta and Saskatchewan) have coastal waters that fall within their boundaries? Or is water below the low-tide mark "federal" only? Andrew Gwilliam (talk) 05:45, 7 July 2011 (UTC). 1. Territorial waters belong to Canada, which is to say "The Queen in Right of Canada" (a.k.a. the federal government). Provinces have no jurisdiction starting at the high water mark. It's a strange concept for us "Central Canadians" inasmuch as we have huge inland waterways which are patrolled by the OPP and Sûreté du Québec, as well as Coast Guard, RCMP and CBSA where they form the border (and corresponding US agencies, of course).

    • Total Area
    • Land Area
    • Internal Water Area

    The total area of a province or ter­ri­tory is the sum of its land area and the area of its in­ter­nal water (fresh­wa­ter only). Areas are rounded to the near­est square kilo­me­tre or square mile. Per­cent­ages are given to the near­est tenth of a per­cent.

    Land areas con­sist of dry land, in­clud­ing areas of fresh­wa­ter, and or salt water. Areas are rounded to the near­est whole unit. Per­cent­ages are given to the near­est tenth of a per­cent.

    The in­ter­nal water area data below, in­cludes fresh­wa­ter (i.e., lakes, rivers, reser­voirs, and canals). It ex­cludes in­ter­nal salt water and ter­ri­to­r­ial wa­ters claimed by Canada in the At­lantic, Pa­cific, and Arc­tic Oceans. Canada con­sid­ers its in­ter­nal water area to in­clude 1,600,000 km2 of salt water in Hud­son Bay and the ocean within and around Canada's Arc­tic Arch­i­pel­ago. Canada's ter­ri­to­r­ial sea is 200,000 km2. Areas are given to the near­est whole unit. Per­cent­ages are given to the near­est tenth of a per­cent.

    There are three ter­ri­to­ries in Canada. Un­like the provinces, the ter­ri­to­ries of Canada have no in­her­ent sov­er­eignty and have only those pow­ers del­e­gated to them by the fed­eral government. They in­clude all of main­land Canada north of lat­i­tude 60° north and west of Hud­son Bay and all is­lands north of the Cana­dian main­land (from those in James Bay to the Queen Eliz­a­beth Is­lands). The fol­low­ing table lists the ter­ri­to­ries in order of precedence[clarification needed](each province has prece­dence over all the ter­ri­to­ries, re­gard­less of the date each ter­ri­tory was cre­ated). An­other ter­ri­tory, the Dis­trict of Kee­watin ex­isted from Oc­to­ber 7, 1876 until Sep­tem­ber 1, 1905, when it re­joined the North­west Ter­ri­to­ries and be­came the Kee­watin Re­gion. It was east of the North-West Ter­ri­to­ries, oc­cu­py­ing the area that is now the Kenora Dis­trictof On­tario, north­ern Man­i­toba, and the east­ern half of Nunavut. Gov­ern­ment of Kee­wat...

    The ma­jor­ity of Canada's pop­u­la­tion is con­cen­trated in the areas close to the Canada–US bor­der. Its four largest provinces by area (Que­bec, On­tario, British Co­lum­bia and Al­berta) are also (with Que­bec and On­tario switched in order) its most pop­u­lous; to­gether they ac­count for 86% of the coun­try's pop­u­la­tion. The ter­ri­to­ries (the North­west Ter­ri­to­ries, Nunavut and Yukon) ac­count for over a third of Canada's area and are home to 0.3% of its pop­u­la­tion, which skews the na­tional pop­u­la­tion den­sityvalue. Canada's pop­u­la­tion grew by 5.0% be­tween the 2006 and 2011 cen­suses. Ex­cept for New Brunswick, all ter­ri­to­ries and provinces in­creased in pop­u­la­tion dur­ing this time. In terms of per­cent change, the fastest-grow­ing province or ter­ri­tory was Nunavut with an in­crease of 12.7% be­tween 2011 and 2016, fol­lowed by Al­bertawith 11.6% growth, while New Brunswick's pop­u­la­tion de­creased by 0.5%. Gen­er­ally, Cana­dian provinces have s...

    On­tario, Que­bec, New Brunswick, and Nova Sco­tia were the orig­i­nal provinces, formed when sev­eral British North Amer­i­can colonies fed­er­ated on July 1, 1867, into the Do­min­ion of Canada and by stages began ac­cru­ing the in­di­cia of sov­er­eignty from the United Kingdom.Prior to this, On­tario and Que­bec were united as the Province of Canada. Over the fol­low­ing years, Man­i­toba (1870), British Co­lum­bia (1871), and Prince Ed­ward Is­land (1873) were added as provinces. The British Crown had claimed two large areas north-west of the Cana­dian colony, known as Ru­pert's Land and the North-West­ern Ter­ri­tory, and as­signed them to the Hud­son's Bay Com­pany. In 1870, the com­pany re­lin­quished its claims for £300,000 ($1.5 mil­lion), as­sign­ing the vast ter­ri­tory to the Gov­ern­ment of Canada. Sub­se­quently, the area was re-or­ga­nized into the province of Man­i­toba and the North­west Territories. The North­west Ter­ri­to­ries were vast at first, en­com­pass­ing...

    The­o­ret­i­cally, provinces have a great deal of power rel­a­tive to the fed­eral gov­ern­ment, with ju­ris­dic­tion over many pub­lic goods such as health care, ed­u­ca­tion, wel­fare, and in­tra-provin­cial transportation. They re­ceive "trans­fer pay­ments" from the fed­eral gov­ern­ment to pay for these, as well as ex­act­ing their own taxes. In prac­tice, how­ever, the fed­eral gov­ern­ment can use these trans­fer pay­ments to in­flu­ence these provin­cial areas. For in­stance, in order to re­ceive health­care fund­ing under Medicare, provinces must agree to meet cer­tain fed­eral man­dates, such as uni­ver­sal ac­cess to re­quired med­ical treatment. Provin­cial and ter­ri­to­r­ial leg­is­la­tures have no sec­ond cham­ber like the Cana­dian Sen­ate. Orig­i­nally, most provinces had such bod­ies, known as leg­isla­tive coun­cils, with mem­bers ti­tled coun­cil­lors. These upper houses were abol­ished one by one, Que­bec's being the last in 1968. In most provinces, the sin­gle...

    Most provinces have rough provin­cial coun­ter­parts to major fed­eral par­ties. How­ever, these provin­cial par­ties are not usu­ally for­mally linked to the fed­eral par­ties that share the same name. For ex­am­ple, no provin­cial Con­ser­v­a­tive or Pro­gres­sive Con­ser­v­a­tive Party shares an or­ga­ni­za­tional link to the fed­eral Con­ser­v­a­tive Party of Canada, and nei­ther do provin­cial Green Par­ties to the Green Party of Canada. Provin­cial New De­mo­c­ra­tic Par­ties, on the other hand, are fully in­te­grated with the fed­eral New De­mo­c­ra­tic Party—mean­ing that provin­cial par­ties ef­fec­tively op­er­ate as sec­tions, with com­mon mem­ber­ship, of the fed­eral party. The Lib­eral Party of Canada shares such an or­ga­ni­za­tional in­te­gra­tion with At­lantic Canada provin­cial Lib­er­als in New Brunswick, New­found­land and Labrador, Nova Sco­tia, and Prince Ed­ward Is­land. Other provin­cial Lib­eral Par­ties are un­af­fil­i­ated with their fed­eral counterpart....

    The Cana­dian Na­tional Vimy Memo­r­ial, near Vimy, Pas-de-Calais, and the Beau­mont-Hamel New­found­land Memo­r­ial, near Beau­mont-Hamel, both in France, are cer­e­mo­ni­ally con­sid­ered Cana­dian territory. In 1922, the French gov­ern­ment do­nated the land used for the Vimy Memo­r­ial "freely, and for all time, to the Gov­ern­ment of Canada the free use of the land ex­empt from all taxes". The site of the Somme bat­tle­field near Beau­mont-Hamel site was pur­chased in 1921 by the peo­ple of the Do­min­ion of New­found­land. These sites do not, how­ever, enjoy ex­trater­ri­to­r­ial sta­tusand are thus sub­ject to French law.

    Since Con­fed­er­a­tion in 1867, there have been sev­eral pro­pos­als for new Cana­dian provinces and ter­ri­to­ries. The Con­sti­tu­tion of Canada re­quires an amend­ment for the cre­ation of a new province but the cre­ation of a new ter­ri­tory re­quires only an act of Par­lia­ment, a leg­isla­tivelysim­pler process. In late 2004, Prime Min­is­ter Paul Mar­tin sur­prised some ob­servers by ex­press­ing his per­sonal sup­port for all three ter­ri­to­ries gain­ing provin­cial sta­tus "even­tu­ally". He cited their im­por­tance to the coun­try as a whole and the on­go­ing need to as­sert sov­er­eignty in the Arc­tic, par­tic­u­larly as global warm­ing could make that re­gion more open to ex­ploita­tion lead­ing to more com­plex in­ter­na­tional wa­ters dis­putes.
