National, Census Divisions and Census Subdivisions Reference Maps, Reference Guide

This reference guide is intended to accompany individual province and territory maps from the 2006 Census Divisions and Census Subdivisions Reference Map series. The 23 individual provincial and territorial maps depict census subdivisions, census divisions, census metropolitan areas and census agglomerations. An index map is also included to show the area covered by each map.

This guide also provides information on four national reference maps showing census divisions, census divisions and economic regions, census metropolitan areas and census agglomerations, as well as Statistical Area Classification.

The entire series of maps is available in a single publication, entitled the Standard Geographical Classification (SGC), Volume II (Catalogue no. 12-572-XPB). The publication includes an index map, four national maps and 23 maps covering the provinces and territories.

The guide describes the map content, the general methodology used to create the maps and information about data quality.
