List Description

Canada is composed of 10 provinces and three territories (the territory of Nunavut was created in 1999). Quebec and the province of Newfoundland and Labrador essentially share a high point, so there are really only twelve summits to climb here, a relatively short list.

However, this is definitely one of the hardest lists to complete in the world, and far harder than the 50 U.S. state high points. Of the twelve peaks, five (high points of BC, NL/QC, NT, NU, YT) require serious week- or month-long expeditions to remote alpine environments where access is usually by airplane. And the climbing is often very technical rock, glaciers, or ice. A sixth, Mount Columbia (AB), is perhaps comparable to Mount Rainier in the USA. The lowest six are certainly easier, but even then two of them (ON, NS) are still long, hard days of hiking or bushwhacking on faint paths in remote wilderness woods.

As of early 2011, Jack Bennett of Ohio and his son Tom Bennett of Georgia are the only ones known to have reached all of these summits.
