Canada geese in flight near Sudbury, Ontario. The Canada goose is notable among wildfowl for its speed and endurance, and symbolizes Canada's wildlife. It is depicted against a background situated in Canada's world-famous nickel-mining country in Northern Ontario. Canadian wildlife and scenery are fascinating attractions for travellers, sportsmen, and form the basis for the country's large and growing tourist industry.
