Canada has more lakes than the rest of the world combined. Approximately 60 percent of the world’s lakes are in Canada. At last count, there may be as many as two million, with 563 of them larger than 100 square kilometres. Among its largest lakes are Lake Huron in Ontario, Great Bear Lake in the Northwestern Territories and Lake Superior also in Ontario. The Great Lakes, straddling the Canada-U.S. boundary, contain 18% of the world's fresh lake water. In all, a whopping 9% of Canada’s surface is covered in fresh water.
