The Digital Atlas Project is a freely-available online atlas for students and teachers around the globe, searching for up-to-date world and regional maps, data, and visualizations for teaching and learning geography.
Canada is home to more than 600 First Nation, Inuit and Métis communities, which represent more than 50 Nations and 50 Indigenous languages. We recognize and acknowledge the long and lasting traditions and spiritual connections of all Indigenous communities including the Attawandaron, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee who were the first stewards of the land where we work and live ,and we commit to active reconciliation by promoting awareness and education.
Two brilliant sources for Canada: Changing Populations
Stats Canada have really upped their game with the quality of some of their data visualizations. Canada's Population Clock provides real-time modelling of births, deaths, immigration and emigration, and makes a great lesson starter.
Over at Immigration, Stats Canada have created a unique set of circle graphs showing Origins and Destinations of immigrants to Canada. Click on a circle to delve into specific time periods, regions, countries and for destinations, even cities.

The resources on these pages cover many of the curriculum elements for middle years and high school in Canada and the United States, Key Stages 2 and 3 in England, Wales, and Scotland, as well as GCSE, IGCSE, A level, AP, IB MYP and DP students and teachers around the world.
Become a contributor! Students and teachers pour over thousands of websites, maps, and geography resources every day. If you find a public or creative commons map, diagram, or graphic that would help build a more complete online atlas, then please forward the link to the DigitalAtlasProject Team.
