Maps selected for the 2022 Esri Canada Map Calendar

We loved every single submission we received this year, but only had space for the top 15. Read on to find out which maps made it into 2022’s Esri Canada Map Calendar, and to learn more about how we asked for your help selecting our People’s Choice Award winner for 2022.

Our heartfelt thanks and gratitude to everyone who sent in submissions to Esri Canada’s annual Map Calendar contest. It was a highly competitive contest season for us, but after much deliberation, we’re pleased to announce the winners.

This year, we selected 15 submissions spanning many different topics for the 2022 calendar. In 2021, we also added a new element to the Map Calendar contest: the People’s Choice Award. Voting closed on September 30, 2021, but find out more about the voting process below.

The winning maps were selected for their visual appeal and the way they use cartography to tell a story. Visit each of the winning maps on the Esri Canada Map Calendar Hub by clicking on the links below.
