The Canadian Encyclopedia
The Canadian Encyclopedia The encyclopedia of everything Canadian: history, popular culture, events, people, places, politics, arts, First Nations, sports and science. The Encyclopedia contains more than 30,000 multimedia items including images, maps, games, audio and video. Multimedia is augmented through acquisition and partnerships with Maclean’s magazine and The Canadian Press. The new interactive features include curated content exhibits, interactive timelines, immediate updates of important events and a user-generated content map that invites Canadians to share their stories. The site also offers a new learning centre for teachers and parents that contains classroom resources, quizzes and themed study guides.
The Historica Dominion Institute, a not-for-profit foundation, publishes the encyclopedia for free online.
