This list of caves only represent the deepest KNOWN caves in Canada. This doesn't even come close to depicting the actual number of surveyed caves. Nor does it show in any way the tens of thousands of caves yet undiscovered in Canada. If Bin Laden were hiding in Canadian caves, he surely would not choose those where anyone could stumble upon him. More likely than not he would choose to inhabit only those caves which remain secret!

Osama Bin Laden Knew What He Was Doing When He Set Up Housekeeping In The Caves Of Afghanistan!

Caves have captured the imagination of poets and authors, and have conjured the spirit of adventure and exploration. Human use of caves has come a long way throughout our history, from living space to hiding place. We know that early humans used the entrances of caves for living spaces.

Caves were often used for very practical reasons. In recent centuries, modern humans used caves for purposes such as storing fruits and vegetables and for growing mushrooms. The darkness and constant temperatures provide ideal conditions for the aging processes of some cheeses and alcoholic beverages. Some caves were used as hospitals for people with respiratory illnesses in hope that the constant atmosphere might help. Caves have provided hiding places for bandits, smugglers, counterfeiting operations, and moonshining (making illegal whiskey). Caves have supplied an excellent source of water.
