Canada's Provinces and Capital Cities
by Louise



This semester many students are studying social studies, especially the geography of Canada. It is very important to know the names of Canada’s thirteen provinces and territories and their capital cities. Here is a list which you can review before you try the three quizzes. You can do the quizzes as many times as you want until you can get 100 % on all three. Good luck!
