TORONTO – Apple seems to be a little confused when it comes to Canadian geography.

Consumers who hit Apple.ca to pre-order one of the company’s new iPhones and clicked on a link about delivery timelines saw an error-riddled map of Canada.

Apple appeared to have mixed up the nation’s capital and Ontario’s capital, and placed Ottawa roughly where Toronto should be on the map.

Edmonton is also seen to be northwest of Calgary, instead of northeast. And Quebec City is mistakenly labelled as Quebec.

A comment from Apple was not immediately available; however, the incorrect map has since been removed from the website.

This isn’t the first time Apple has been made fun of for its lack of geographical knowledge.

The tech giant’s own “Maps” application became notorious for the number of strange and hilarious errors after its release in 2012.

The application relocated cities and even instructed users to cross the ocean by car. In one of the more bizarre mistakes, Apple included a previously undiscovered airport in Dublin. Airfield, a 35-acre farm and formal garden, was designated as an airport in the application.

Apple CEO Tim Cook later apologized for the frustration the application caused.
