Note: A map was initially issued cover dated 1980/81. In 1981 an additional map was issued date coded 1981.
Manitoulin Island is located between Georgian Bay and Lake Huron. Gore Bay - the location
featured on the cover of the map - is located on the north side of the island.
In a clever move to ensure that Sudbury appeared on both sides of the map - thereby providing
excellent visual continuity - a rather unusual inclusion was made over the index numbers.
Northwestern Ontario spans two time zones. For the first time on an Official
Ontario map - the time zone boundary was shown.
