The Geological Atlas of the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin was designed primarily as a reference volume documenting the subsurface geology of the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin. This GIS dataset is one of a collection of shapefiles representing part of Chapter 3 of the Atlas, Structure and Architecture of the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin, Figure 1, Structural Elements of the WCSB. Shapefiles were produced from archived digital files created by the Alberta Geological Survey in the mid-1990s, and edited in 2005-06 to correct, attribute and consolidate the data into single files by feature type and by figure.
An archive of 2D regional seismic and long period magnetotelluric data collected during 20 years of work under the LITHOPROBE project. Data are primarily onshore and cover widespread regions of Canada. Available data types include raw digital data, processed sections, and images of final sections, as well as auxiliary information required for analysis of the data.
This table contains 88 series, with data for years 2001 - 2001 (not all combinations necessarily have data for all years). This table contains data described by the following dimensions (Not all combinations are available): Geography (1 items: Canada ...) Type of barrier to accessing non-emergency surgeries (11 items: Non-emergency surgeries; waited too long for surgery; Non-emergency surgeries; difficulty getting an appointment with the surgeon; Non-emergency surgeries; surgery cancelled or postponed by hospital or physician; Non-emergency surgeries; waited too long for diagnostic test ...) Characteristics (8 items: Number of persons; Low 95% confidence interval; number of persons; Coefficient of variation; number of persons; High 95% confidence interval; number of persons ...).
The audit focused on whether the Public Health Agency of Canada and Health Canada, before and during the COVID‑19 pandemic, helped to meet the needs of provincial and territorial governments for selected Personal Protective Equipment (N95 masks and medical gowns) and medical devices (testing swabs and ventilators). The audit also focused on whether Public Services and Procurement Canada provided adequate procurement support to the Public Health Agency of Canada.
With more Canadians using Compact flourescent lamps (CFLs), some have begun to question their safety, including the level of UV emissions, the electric and magnetic fields (EMFs) they create, and the presence of mercury in the lamps.

The data were collected during two research projects:
Development of community-based monitoring for aquatic invasive species in the Canadian Arctic - preparing for increased shipping related to resource development and climate change;
Diversity of pelagic primary producers in coastal habitats and the potential for harmful blooms in Eastern Canadian Arctic, with a focus near Iqaluit, Nunavut. Funding was provided by Polar Knowledge Canada, Fisheries and Oceans Canada (Strategic Program for Ecosystem-based Research and Advice, Aquatic Invasive Species Program and Oceans Ocean Protection Plan) and the Nunavik Marine Region Wildlife Board. These data are the abundance, richness and diversity of dinoflagellate communities in Canadian Arctic seaports to provide baseline data and to verify the presence of potential non-indigenous species and harmful taxa. These data can be used as a reference source for monitoring the introduction of potentially non-native species introduced into Arctic ports where shipping activities are high.
Spatial dataset of DRASTIC aquifer intrinsic vulnerability of groundwater for specific study areas in BC, as reported in technical summary reports which are made available through the BC government's Ecological Reports Catalogue (EcoCat). For the study areas covered by each report and a link to each report in EcoCat, please see the EcoCat Reports Index spatial dataset: https://catalogue.data.gov.bc.ca/dataset/386396c7-befe-4357-8088-21f1834a2e76 For more information (including an explanation of the DRASTIC method) please see "A Guide to the Use of Intrinsic Aquifer Vulnerability Mapping" at https://a100.gov.bc.ca/pub/acat/public/viewReport.do?reportId=23346
Contained within the Atlas of Canada's Reference Map Series, 1961 to 2010, is a map of the Northwest Territories and Yukon Territory. The map shows transport facilities (including extensive detail on aerodromes), populated places, and drainage features. There is also an indication of offshore ice-cover. The data on this map has widely-varying dates: the base map is as of 1974, much of the human geography data is as of 1982 and (on some copies), and there is overprint from the early 1990s to show the likely boundary for the projected territory of Nunavut.
