The Topography

The Topography of the Canadian Shield is very interesting. Mostly the Shield is an area covered with precambrian rocks, and ice. This huge region is mostly covered with forests and snow covered regions and is getting more developed daily. In the North, most of the area is undeveloped with few humans nearby, but in the South tons of the Shield is developed and factories, cities and towns have been made. The Shield area is drained by the Nelson-Saskatchewan, Churchill, Severn, Albany, flooding into the Hudson Bay. Lastly, the shield is mostly covered with thin soil on top of bedrock with many bare outcrops and thousands of lakes.
