Canada 2001 Legendary Creatures Cover perforation varietyStories of imaginary creatures abound in many cultures and Canada's folklore is not without its own 'monsters'.

The supernatural creature known as the Loup-garou is the French-Canadian counterpart of the European werewolf. According to legend, those who neglected their religious obligations for seven years would be transformed into a wolf or occasionally some other animal.

Ogopogo is the fabled aquatic monster said to inhabit Lake Okanagan in British Columbia.

Known for centuries by local Indians as a great serpentine beast, it is reported to swim with an undulating motion and is generally "sighted" as several humps moving through the water.

Long before the many modern-day sightings, the Indians told of the Sasquatch who lived in the forests and mountains of the Pacific Northwest. Half-man and half-beast, this large, hairy humanoid is said to stand two to three and a half metres tall, weigh three to four hundred kilograms and walk upright.
