The total area of Canada, including the canadian portion of the Great lakes, 9 970 670 sq km, of which 755180 sq km falls on inland waters and neighbouring island continent. And if to consider that at 28.3 million people, about 80% of Canadians live in cities, you can imagine how deserted the rest of the country.
