  • Lakes
Canada has more than 31,700 big lakes that are over 300 ha. big. In fact more than half of all the lakes in the world are located in Canada!
The country also has two of the biggest lakes in the world: Great Bear Lake and Great Slave Lake.
The Great Bear Lake is a lake in the Canadian boreal forest. It is the largest lake entirely in Canada (Lake Superior and Lake Huron straddling the Canada–US border are larger), the fourth-largest in North America, and the eighth-largest in the world. The lake is in the Northwest Territories, and it is 156 m  above sea level.
Great Bear Lake — [ˌɡreɪt ˌbeər ˈleɪk] — Greitbērleiks (Lielais Lāča ezers)
The Great Slave Lake is the second-largest lake in the Northwest Territories of Canada (after Great Bear Lake), the deepest lake in North America at 614 metres  and the tenth-largest lake in the world. The lake shares its name with the First Nations peoples called Slavey.
Great Slave Lake — [ˌɡreɪt ˌsleɪv ˈleɪk] — Greitsleivleiks
