There's no map online, so here's a summary list of the parks and where
they are:

1.    Northern Bathurst Island: in the Arctic Archipelago, near the
north magnetic pole
2.     East arm of Great Slave Lake (tundra meets the northern edge of
the boreal forest; caribou and other wildlife)
3.    Gwali Haunas Marine (Queen Charlotte Islands; Gwaii is the Haida
word for "Haida")
4. & 5.    Gulf Islands and Gulf Islands Marine  (Canadian side of the
Gulf Islands north of Puget Sound)
6.    Manitoba Lowlands ("Interlaken" muskeg area where the Canadian
shield meets the eastern edge of the boreal forest)
7.     Mealy Mountains (mountains lining the big inlet where Happy
Valley-Goose Bay NATO base is, in Labrador)
8.     Torngat Mountains  (northern tip of Labrador and east side of
Quebec's Ungava Bay)
9.     Ukkusiksalik (Wager Bay); reversing waterfall on Chesterfield
Inlet, polar bear habitat
10.    North Shore of Lake Superior (marine park)

There are already 39 national parks; this will make 49; and Chrétien has
said he will announce 3 more in the coming months.

"The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high
and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our
mark."
