Learning my way

Landed a job in a foreign country.  Because it deals with shipping, I am finding my lack of geographical knowledge in regards to Canada is lacking.  The city of Winnipeg is in Manitoba, I had no clue.  Sure some smaller fare is understandable. But, others not so much.

So I know that Truro is in Nova Scotia, and that the contraction for Nova Scotia is NV.  PEI is Prince Edward Island. and Newfoundland and Labrador are linked.

Saskatoon is in Saskatchewan and Thunder Bay is in Ontario.

The closer to the southern boarder the more towns and people.  So population wise the country is a large stripe.

Oh and PM Harper is NOT the head of state.  That would be Queen Elizabeth and or the Governor General David Johnston.
