Geographical Names Board of Canada (GNBC)

In Canada, names on official, federal government maps have been authorized through the Geographical Names Board of Canada (GNBC). This national committee, which dates back to 1897, now comprises representatives from each province and territory, and from various federal departments concerned with mapping, translation, statistics, archives, defence, national parks and Indian lands.
