Great Bear Lake
Great Bear Lake, 31 328 km2, elevation 156 m, lies astride the Arctic Circle in the northwestern Northwest Territories, about 200 km south of the Arctic Ocean. It is the eighth-largest lake in the world, fourth in North America and the largest lying entirely within Canada.
Peace River, 1923 km long, is one of the principal tributaries of the MACKENZIE RIVER system. According to Alexander Mackenzie, when he wintered along the Peace River during 1792-93, the river was named Unchaga (Cree for "Peace") after a settlement between Cree and Beaver warring parties at Peace Point at the lower portion of the river.
