Canadian Water

The Great lakes Basin is the largest freshwater lake system on Earth but it isn’t the only freshwater found in North American. In fact, the Canadian portion of the great lakes makes up only 10% of all the freshwater in Canada! In total, Canada has 891 163 kilometers squared of freshwater, or 9% of the world’s freshwater. This means that Canada has the largest surface area of freshwater of any country in the world!
