Recent surveys suggest that there may be as many as 2 million lakes in Canada. About 7.6% of Canada’s nearly 10 million km2 is covered by fresh water; enough water is contained by these lakes and rivers to flood the entire country to a depth of over 2 m. Canada possesses nearly 14% of the world’s lakes having surface areas over 500 km2  <<< This means, Canada has more bigger lakes than any other county on Earth.
