The Definitive, Online Resource on All Things Canadian

TORONTO, Feb. 16 /CNW/ - The Vancouver 2010 Olympics Games are now in full swing. Canada plays host to the world. At a time when all eyes on our country, The Historica-Dominion Institute reminds you of the definitive online resources on all things Canadian.

The Canadian Encyclopedia is the most authoritative and comprehensive resource ever created on Canada, with some 40,000 articles in English and French and over 6,000 media items. Written by experts, fully edited, read and verified, each article is a reliable introduction or survey of its subject. The Canadian Encyclopedia was first published in book form in 1985 and has subsequently gone through two other printed versions, two French printed editions, numerous CD-ROM versions and is currently online. The text has been continually updated and augmented since 1985. The content of The Canadian Encyclopedia ranges over every conceivable topic from Abalone to Zoos. Visit The Canadian Encyclopedia at
