I want to have a layer like this: http://i1.wp.com/www.gogeomatics.ca/magazine/wp-content/uploads/BC11.jpg 

I have searched the web endlessly and cannot find any file like this. I'm sure its not difficult to do.

 

Thank you,

Tanner,

it looks like elevation data that has been symbolised using shaded relief and hypsometric tints. You should be able to download the data from here:

GeoBase - Canadian Digital Elevation Data

Thank you so much. So I have to download each sections that build it on arc map? There are so many files and Im not sure which ones I need or don't need.

Have a look at this site here:

Geospatial Data Extraction | Natural Resources Canada

It looks like it will allow you to download an area already created as a shaded relief product
