Emily's Canadiana page
I'm an American by birth, but I've been living in Canada since August of 1992,
and I love it here.
An American's Guide to
Canada is slowly replacing this page, which may have some dead
links and outdated content. Please visit the new page too -- it's more up
to date, and there's a lot more to it.
Government and law Web sites
Places to see and things to do
- The Canadian Broadcasting
Corporation (CBC) has a big Web site. The CBC has some
terrific radio shows, which you can generally pick up anywhere in
Canada, and they make a lot of good television. How to tell you're
watching a Canadian evening newscast: the balding anchorman isn't
wearing a toupee.
- A rapidly growing site is the
Gay, Lesbian, and Bisexual Resource Directory for Canada. If you
know of any such resources, let them know: the site is a great idea, and
seems to be expanding well with contributions from visitors.
- Shift Magazine is an excellent
source of information about new media and culture.
- Frank Magazine is
published anonymously every two weeks, and contains dirt, hot gossip, and
general nastiness. Their rendering of Jean Chrétien's Quebecois
accent never fails to make me giggle.
- A site calling itself Art & Artistry contains
some work of Aboriginal and First Nations Canadian artists.
- The University of Calgary
maintains a server called
CultureNet, full of lots of great information.
- Canada Council is a private
organization that gives grants to artists and writers who work on projects
that help to promote and further Canadian heritage.
