Canada is a country with abundant natural resources, substantial vegetation, and freshwater lakes. It seems like, from coast to coast to coast, Canada is curated and handcrafted by Mother Earth. Every province has its unique identity; we live in Ontario, home to the largest freshwater lakes in Canada, Lake Ontario, and Lake Superior, holding 7.8% of the total national freshwater, Canada's biggest lake. Apart from the lakes, Canada has preserved the resources for the upcoming generations.Conservation Halton, near Milton, Ontario, is one of the examples to prove it right.
