Canada is a country situated in North America bordered by the United States of America to the south, the Pacific Ocean to the west, the Arctic Ocean to the north and the Atlantic Ocean to the east. With the USA being so close to Canada and having an active partnership with the country on many levels, FBI Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully's investigations sometimes took them north to Canada.

A wagon containing a mysterious creature believed to be an alien/human hybrid was once attached to a train on its way to Vancouver, British Columbia. (TXF: "Nisei", "731")

On another occasion, Agent Mulder was taken to rural Alberta by Jeremiah Smith to see a farm where young Agrarian Drone clones, including those of his sister, cultivated flowering shrubs for pollen. A large apiary was also part of this setting, its bees used in the alien colonization project. (TXF: "Herrenvolk")

A fake alien corpse was discovered by scientists in an ice block in the Yukon Territory and the murder of these men brought Agent Mulder to Canada to investigate. (TXF: "Gethsemane")

While widely believed to be dead, the Cigarette Smoking Man hid in a cabin in North Hatley, Québec. (TXF: "The Red and the Black")

Baby William was once kidnapped by an Albertan UFO cult who had uncovered an alien spaceship and saw the child as part of the alien plan. (TXF: "Provenance", "Providence")

After Mulder was secretly released from prison following a bogus trial in 2002, FBI Deputy Director Alex Krycek told him to drive north and find refuge in Canada. Mulder had other plans and headed south to New Mexico. (TXF: "The Truth")
