Canada boasts three top 10 islands
Canada can be proud of its islands. In Conde Nast Traveler's Readers Choice Awards, Canada has three islands that made it in the Top 10 North American Islands category. And for the seventh year in a row, Vancouver Island takes first place honors in Conde Nast Traveler's Top 10 North American Islands.
BC's Gulf Islands placed #4, while Prince Edward Island came in right behind at #5. The magazine's annual awards are in the November 2008 issue -- you can also see the results by logging onto their interactive map.
