The topography of Canada is as diverse as its population, stretching from the snow-capped peaks of the Rocky Mountains to the rolling hills of the Canadian Shield and the flat landscape of the Great Plains. The country’s highest elevation point is Mount Logan in Yukon Territory, with an elevation of 5,959 meters (19,551 feet) above sea level. The average elevation across Canada ranges from 110 to 180 meters (360 to 600 feet) above sea level. Meanwhile, Ontario’s lowest point is Lake Erie at a minimum elevation of 72 meters (236 feet). Special attention should also be given to distinctive features such as the area around Cape Spear in Newfoundland and Labrador – the oldest lighthouse in North America.
