List Description

This list is very similar to the list of Canadian High Points. Of the 13 Provinces and Territories that make up Canada, the highest peak and most prominent peak are the same in 11 of them. The only exceptions are Saskatchewan and Quebec. In Saskatchewan, the highest point is a flat plateau in the Cypress Hills, near the Alberta border, and the province just misses out on the highest point in the entire Cypress Hills (which is entirely in Alberta and has a respectable prominence of almost 600 meters). Quebec's Mont d'Iberville is located only a couple of horizontal meters from Mount Caubvick (fully inside Labrador), and therefore has very low prominence. So Quebec's prom point is the popular and much more accessible Mont Jacques Cartier.


Thanks to Edward Earl, who, using his WinProm program, determined the most prominent peaks for Manitoba and Saskatchewan.
