Project Description

The Canada Land Inventory (CLI) is a comprehensive multi-disciplinary land inventory of rural Canada, covering over 2.5 million square kilometres of land and water. Land capability for agriculture, forestry, wildlife, recreation, wildlife (ungulates and waterfowl) was mapped. Over 1000 mapsheets at the 1:250,000 scale were created during the 1960’s, 70’s, and early 80’s. Although the information is old, and better information is available for some areas as part of more recent soil surveys, the interpretations are still largely valid, and many jurisdictions still use them for land use planning purposes.
