    I was wondering if any of you knew where I could find a good source of soil profiles for Canada.

    Not entirely sure what you're looking for but a a quick search revealed soil maps of Canada.

    No, it is more like this...

    But the above picture is a general soil profile. I am looking for ones for specific regions. I have searched a great deal and discovered nothing.

    Soils tend to be specific to certain climatic & geological settings rather than to a region. A podsol is a podsol wherever in the world it occurs. The map gives you the types of soil and their distribution, so take the soil types given in the map and either Google them or look them up in a soil science book.
    To get you started, this was the first result for "Chernozem profile" on google image:

    Thank you. I know how soil profiles are affected but I was talking about the specific regions of Canada. Canada has categorized their soils into regions but there is no info on the soil profiles.
