01durango-as an aside,you can download Canadian Topographic maps for that area.These are GeoTiffs and have the corner positions included.I've just been converting a bunch to the Kap format OpenCPN likes and can wander about with the gps
inland.If you're interested,I'll describe process but the links you'll want are:
The Atlas of Canada - Toporama – Topographic Maps
the mapsheet number and then
Index of /pub/toporama/50k_geo_tif
...there's several variation!of the above,if you want different mapsheets..UTM ,full sized with legend and so on...all sorts of stuff .
