Thanks For Visiting colourcanada.com
I'm Dave and this is colourcanada.com.
In 2001 (when flash was still cool) I had the idea to build a website where you could print Canadian themed colouring pictures, each with a small description, to make learning about Canada fun. Since then colourcanada has been both a hobby and a labour of love... and at times frustration. No matter what's going on I try to make time to improve and expand the site so check back often, and if nothing has changed, check back again and again!
Thanks for visiting
Keep Calm and Colour on!

For the first time ever I got to spend a few days in Halifax this summer. Actually, I once drove through by mistake, but didn't get to stay and take in what this city has to offer. In August some friends asked us to visit and visit we did. There are lots of great places in and around Halifax to explore, from the Annapolis Valley to Peggy's Cove, beaches galore and history abound! One of the cool things we saw on the waterfront was Theodore the Tugboat. I remember watching this show with my kids when they were small, so the see the old boat, brought back some fond memories. To colour Theodore, just click on the image!
Secrets of the Gatineau Hills
Just off a main path in the Gatineau Park there are the ruins of a old mill. The Willson Carbide Mill has an interesting history and is a very cool place to visit, hang out and take pictures. Thomas Willson was an entrepreneur who discovered a revolutionary way to create fertilizer. His Dam and mill near Meech Lake became the centre of his efforts to corner the market. Sadly he died of a heart attack in 1915 before realizing his dreams.
