This set of maps represents a geological compilation of the northern part of the Stewart River map area, southwest of the Tintina Fault Zone. This report includes six 1:50 000-scale bedrock geology maps which cover NTS map sheets 115 N/15 (Crag Mountain), 115 N/16 (Enchantment Creek), 115 O/13 (Garner Creek), 115 O/14 (Grand Forks), 115 O/15 (Flat Creek) and 115 O/16 (Medrick Creek). The maps are based mainly on geological mapping carried out by the author on behalf of Archer, Cathro and Associates (1981), Ltd. In 1983-84 and the Geological Survey of Canada between 1986 and 1991.

The Agriculture Extent of Canada derived from the AVHRR (Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer) was obtained from the GeoGratis web site (www.geogratis.ca). All polygons with an area less than 50 Km sq were eliminated by GeoGratis before we received the data. This product allows the user to see the significant areas of cropland and rangeland across Canada. The Agriculture Extent of Canada derived from the AVHRR (Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer) was obtained from the GeoGratis web site (www.geogratis.ca).
Existing invasive exotic species and the potential introduction of new invasive species pose a threat to forest biodiversity and function. The PEI National Park invasive species composite measure consists of two annual field measurements: the percentage of forest ecosystem with invasive species present (measured by proportion of 244, 441 m2 quadrats covering the forest ecosystem), and the percentage of total forest area (ha) with invasive species present. The measure includes four invasive plants and one insect: Garlic Mustard (Alliaria petiolata), Japanese Knotweed (Polygonum cuspidatum), Scots Pine (Pinus sylvestris), and Glossy Buckthorn (Frangula alnus), and Gypsy Moth (Lymantria dispar), which is measured for presence only.
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 10 of the Atlas, Devonian Elk Point Group of the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin, Figure 3, Elk Point Isopach. 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.
Under the new judicial appointment process introduced by the Minister of Justice on October 20, 2016, any interested and qualified Canadian lawyer or judge may apply for such appointment by completing a questionnaire. The questionnaires are then used by the Judicial Advisory Committees across Canada to review candidates and submit a list of “highly recommended” and “recommended” candidates for consideration by the Minister of Justice. Candidates are advised that parts of their questionnaire could be made available to the public, with their consent, should they be appointed to the bench.
Below are Parts 5, 6, 7, and 11 of the questionnaire completed by the Honourable David Labrenz.
The Internet is crucial to Government of Canada (GC) business, but using such technology can also make the GC’s networks vulnerable. Since many GC systems are connected to the Internet, if one department is compromised, all GC departments could be put at risk. Cyber intrusions are costly to a department’s operations, reputation and service delivery. Consequently, departments need sound IT Security programs that minimize vulnerabilities and counter threats.
