What places have you visited in Canada through books? For me, Prince Edward Island was so very vivid for many years, despite my never having visited, due to the magic of L. M. Montgomery's novels and stories.
Project Bookmark Canada commemorates settings in Canadian Literature. There's a Bookmark in Vancouver's Chinatown featuring a scene from Wayson Choy's novel The Jade Peony. (I'm such a huge fan of that book. Once, I went to a Vancouver Writers Fest event and waited in a long line to ask him to sign my copy for me.)
On April 7, 2014, if you donate to Project Bookmark Canada, you are eligible to win copies of The Journey Prize Stories 25 and my collection, How Does a Single Blade of Grass Thank the Sun?.
