Ottawa, Sept 2 (Canadian-Media) Indigenous Peoples Atlas of Canada (IPAC), produced by the Royal Canadian Geographical Society (RCGS), does not have any provinces, territories or capital cities on the map, media reports said.

Instead, the Unique four-volume IPAC without any political boundaries, provides information about land claim agreements, treaty areas, traditional lands, Indigenous languages and forced population movements of Canada's Indigenous peoples.
Also present is a giant floor map, approximately the size of a gymnasium with more than a hundred pages guide and 17 lesson plans.
According to official reports, IAPC which excludes its modern boundaries, would soon be accessible to students and families across Canada.
Organizations like Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami, the Assembly of First Nations, the Métis National Council, the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation, and Indspire partnered together to produce IPAC.
Although the project has contributions by more than 100 Indigenous storytellers, knowledge keepers and writers, all decisions for the atlas were made by Indigenous peoples.
Pre-ordering of IPAC has already begun as it would not be available in stores until Sept. 20.
