 Did You Know: 

  • Canada has the world’s longest coastline 🏖
    If you walked and never stopped — not to eat, not to rest your feet, not to get some sleep — it would take you four-and-a-half years to walk the length of Canada’s coastline. While it might not conjure up images of blue waters and white sandy beaches, Canada has the world’s longest coastline, bordered on three sides by three different oceans: the Atlantic, Arctic and Pacific. To put that fascinating fact about Canada in perspective, that accounts for 202,080 of the world’s total 356,000 kilometres of oceanfront property. The only other country that even comes close is Indonesia, which has 54,716 km of coastline.
