Great! Just one suggestion, could you list answers alphabetically so that when you are missing a few you can get an idea of the starting letter?

I chose them based on both size and how well known they are. I could have chosen more Arctic islands, but then this quiz would quickly become obscure. Therefore I included all of the Atlantic and Pacific islands (minus the islands in Hudson's Bay), and the six largest Arctic Islands.

Haida Gwaii in itself is very obscure, even to most Canadians. I would doubt Graham Island and Moresby Island would be any better known then Devon or even Axel Heiburg. Also, Haida Gwaii is strangely merged into seemingly one island on the map, and it would be more work then it's worth to recreate the islands. Beautiful archipelago, though. Amazing that so few have heard of it.

Victoria island's name doesn't show up if you hover the cursor over it at the end.

When you run the mouse over the island next to Banks the name doesn't show up. I'm guessing it's Victoria Island?

Nova Scotia is a peninsula, as it turns out.

Newfoundland was included, and Nova Scotia is a peninsula. There are white lines in between provinces, therefore there is the illusion of a strait separating Nova Scotia from the rest of Canada.

It's Cape Breton not Brenton :) that's likely why it did not work

I did. Devon Island is called the Last Stop before Mars because astronauts go there to train for the martian conditions.
