What does the map show?

This is a highly-detailed map set that contains two maps - both highlighting the political features, boundaries distinctly outlining provinces and a legend providing information about the map. The map uses bright colors for easy identification of areas, international and inter-provincial boundaries clearly.

Alaska Boundary Dispute

The Alaska boundary dispute was a territorial dispute between the United States and the United Kingdom, which then controlled Canada's foreign relations. It was resolved by arbitration in 1903. The dispute existed between the Russian Empire and Britain since 1821, and was inherited by the United States as a consequence of the Alaska Purchase in 1867.

Dispute of Great Britain and the United States

When Great Britain and France went to war in 1793, relations between the United States and Great Britain also verged on war. Two controversies with France pushed the English-speaking powers even more closely together.

Ontario-Manitoba border dispute

The Alaska boundary dispute was resolved, generally in favor of the United States claim. The provinces of Alberta act and Saskatchewan act were created from the North-West Territories. Manitoba, Ontario, and Quebec act were all expanded northward into land from the Northwest Territories.
