The first inhabitants of North America are generally assumed by the historian to have moved from Siberia by way of the Bering land bridge and arrived at least 14,000 years ago. The Semi-Indian archeological sites at Old Crow Flats and Bluefish Caves are two of the oldest sites of human habitation proofs in Canada.


Including land and water, Canada is the second-largest country in the world, after Russia. By land area alone, however, Canada ranks fourth, due to having the world's largest part of freshwater lakes. Stretching from the Atlantic Ocean in the east, along the Arctic Ocean to the north, and the Pacific Ocean in the west, the country covers in total 9,984,670 km2 of territory.
