The film features many of the geographical and economic characteristics of Canada's provinces - tourist sites, industry, natural attractions - all connected by the Canadian Pacific Railway. Shots include: scenes from each provincial capital; fishing and farming in the Maritimes; country life, handicrafts and historic sites in Quebec; wheat and oil industries in the Western provinces; and mountains, logging and parkland in British Columbia."
