The Plains region of Canada is an area of a variety of interesting landforms. Sometimes called "Canada's breadbasket" it is known as one of the richest grain-producing regions in the world supplying us with a lot of our food. Formed over milllions of years, the area started as a region of land below an ancient sea. Today one can find fossils and dinosaur bones in certain areas. The First Peoples of the Plains arrived over 10,000 years ago and were nomadic hunters who followed the great herds of bison.
