As of the beginning of 2010, there are 15 UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Canada, and they are all documented in the World Greatest Sites. Six of these are Cultural and nine are Natural sites. Canada has submitted a further nine sites presently on the World Heritage Tentative List.

I have also documented one Marvel of Modern Architecture, with hope of adding more in the future.
