Designed by Tsveta Todorova, the lead web designer at Art Branch Inc., the infographic was created as a visual representation of the ways in which the work of influential Canadians has influenced and shaped society and contributed to human progress.

Canada is also the home country of many famous authors, politicians, scientists, musicians, and movie stars that every Canadian should be proud of,” said John Williams, marketing consultant at Art Branch, Inc.
