How diverse is the landscape of Canada

State of Canada

Canada is a state that consists of ten provinces and three territories. The provinces are the constituent states of the Canadian state. They have a high degree of independence from the Federal Government of Canada and draw their power and authority directly from the Crown under the Constitutional Act of 1867.

The territories include that part of the Canadian state that does not belong to any of the provinces and have fewer separate competencies than the provinces.
