    “In order to track the high rates of population growth in western Canada, the Canadian government called for a special census of the prairie provinces (Manitoba, and the two newly created provinces of Saskatchewan, and Alberta). This endeavour continued every 10 years from 1906 to 1956, at which time the Census of the Northwest Provinces became part of the Canada-wide census. Through this research tool you can access digitized images of original census returns, which recorded the names of family members, their sex, marital status, year of immigration to Canada, post office address, etc.”

    “Please note that this database is no longer being updated.
    The following guide was compiled to assist researchers who wish to consult federal records relating to the Métis scrip commissions. The guide is not meant to be exhaustive or definitive; rather it is intended to direct researchers to the obvious archival sources retained by the National Archives of Canada in Record Group 15 (RG 15), the records of the Department of the Interior. As the primary agency responsible for the administration and development of all federal lands and natural resources in the former North-West Territories, the Department of the Interior played a significant role in the formation of federal scrip policy; in the creation and management of the scrip commissions; and in the administration of each commission's decisions concerning the awards given to individual Métis families. Given its mandate, it is only natural then that the majority of scrip commission records held by the National Archives should be found in the record group established for the Department of the Interior (RG 15).”

    Electronic.

    "The mapping of land capability for ungulates follows a national system developed with the aid of the Canadian Wildlife Service and the game branches of the provinces. The ungulate sector uses seven classes, like the others. In addition to class and subclass, the system indicates the ungulate species to which the classification refers. Capability for ungulate production implies a sufficient quantity and quality of food, protective cover, and space to meet the needs for survival, growth, and reproduction."

    "The ABC3 Canada-wide 1-km resolution AVHRR composite maps (Version 2) were produced as part of the CCRS Northern Biosphere Observation and Modelling Experiment (NBIOME). NBIOME co-ordinated the participation of a Canadian research team in the international Earth Observing System (EOS) to develop methods for post-processing of AVHRR seasonal composite maps to produce derived products with national coverage. The ABC3v2 output product layers are used at CCRS in land cover and climate change studies; and are used to generate various non-remote sensing products such as Leaf Area Index (LAI) and Net Primary Productivity (NPP). These data layers can be used directly by resource managers to study large scale changes in land cover types and land use practices. Natural disturbances such as forest fires can alter the land cover. Anthropogenic changes caused by clear cutting of forests or industrial and residential development are significant in the long-term. The composite products can be used to evaluate seasonal behaviours of land cover types. These data layers and derived products can be used in radiation budget and climate studies."
