Distances in Canada are measured mainly in meters & kilometers (there are 1000 meters in a kilometer).

A yard is a bit shorter than a meter: 0.9 m = 1 yard

A mile is just a bit over one and a half times longer than a kilometer: 1.6 km = 1 mile.

All distances in Canada are posted in kilometers and speed limits in Canada are posted in kilometers per hour (km / h).
