Date and time


City of Surrey, BC



Offered in English.



Jenny Lewis, from the Arts Council of Surrey, will be painting a map of Canada to celebrate the richness of Canada's landscape. The map will highlight one lake from each Province and Territory.

British Columbia: Where the ocean meets the mountains, great skiing, wildlife, and old growth trees. Emerald Lake is the largest lake in Yoho National Park, it features beautiful green hued water.

Alberta: Rocky Mountains, and the plains. Abraham Lake in the winter freezes over and plants decay under the ice causing methane bubbles to float to the surface of the ice, causing this cool effect. 

Saskatchewan: Wheat Growing, Athabasca Sand Dunes. Lake: Little Manitou Lake which has three times the mineral density of the ocean.

Manitoba: Riding Mountain National Park stands out to the prairie farmland that surrounds the park. Lake Winnipeg is the remnants of a massive glacial lake.

Ontario is home to Canada's famous waterfalls, the Niagara Falls. The Great Lakes, Superior, Huron, Michigan, Erie, and Ontario which are so massive in size you cannot see to the other side.

Quebec: Montmorency Falls are 30 meters higher than Niagara Falls. Pink Lake is a meromictic lake which means the layers of the lake do not mix together.

New Brunswick is home to the Bay of Fundy. Lake Utopia connected to the magaguadavic river, which is the second largest canal in the world.

Nova Scotia is home to Peggy's Cove. Ponhook Lake features 39 separate islands that give the lake a spotted effect.

Prince Edward Island: Green Gables Heritage Farm. Lake of Shining Waters named by Anne of Green Gables which was written by L.M Montgomery.

Newfoundland and Labrador features Gros Morne National Park. Lake Melville is the salt water tidal extension of Hamilton Inlet on the Labrador Coast.

Northwest Territories is home to the Northern Lights. Great Slave Lake is the deepest lake in North America. 

Nunavut is also home to the Northern Lights, Baffin Island the largest island in Canada, and Aberdeen Lake located on the Canadian Shield.

Yukon features Northern lights, Miles Canyon, and Kathleen Lake which offers a great hiking experience.
