Canada Uncensored! Lewd, Crude and Outright Funny Canadian Geographical Names

At Backroad Mapbooks we’ve been mapping Canada’s backcountry since 1993 so we like to think we know Canada pretty well. Everyday we get orders for our print-on-demand Backroad Topographic Maps and the names that come out of some of the places across Canada give us the giggles!


Our large scale Topos are great for hunting, fishing, camping, hiking, paddling and ATV adventures but we occasionally come across some, um, eyebrow-raising names.


Here is the beginnings of a list of our favourites in Canada so far. And yes they are all real and can be found in our Backroad Mapbooks, Backroad GPS Maps and via our Topos.
