Geological Survey of Canada (GSC) Maps

The Geological Survey of Canada (GSC) has published thousands of maps since the mid-1800's. More than 10,000 of these maps have been scanned and are freely available online. Newer maps have been created as digital files. You can search all GSC publications, including maps, using GEOSCAN. If you find a map on GEOSCAN that has not yet been scanned/digitized then please check our library catalogue for a print version (use the tips in the search box above to find maps).

"A" Series Maps: This is a well-known, long-running series of geology maps produced by the GSC; the series has recently been replaced by the Canadian Geoscience Map (CGM) Series. You can search GEOSCAN specifically for these series by selecting them from the "Series" field on the Advanced Search page. 

The Science Library also has a large collection of print "A" Series Maps:
