Canada Cartographic Boundary Files

The Population Ecumene Census Division boundary file for Canada contains a generalised population ecumene boundary with at least one ecumene pocket for every census division (CD). It can be used to produce small-scale thematic maps of statistical data. Geographic Information System software is required for creating the thematic maps. Software is not provided with the product.

This product consists of three boundary files: (1) the population ecumene (with census division polygons), (2) the census divisions and (3) the provinces and territories. These boundary files are greatly generalised and suitable for small scale mapping only. They are not positionally consistent with the Cartographic Boundary File products. Data available as ArcInfo coverages or Mapinfo format
