This is an interactive and authoritative source of over 500,000 geographical names in Canada. By combining this server and the Canadian Geographical Names Data Base (CGNDB), it provides a simple reference service which includes basic locational information and downloadable maps. It offers information for researchers, genealogists, cartographers, and students. Queries can be launched by geographical name or by point coordinates. There is also a very useful section on SchoolNet's origin of Canadian place names.
