More than 14,000 individual date-by-date entries in this single volume chronology of Canadian history. This single-volume chronology of Canada from its prehistoric beginnings to the social, cultural, business and political happenings of the present age is the most comprehensive and up-to-date book of its kind in the market today. With more than 14,000 individual "date-by-date" entries and featuring both a detailed general index as well as a separate index of names, the book is an invaluable resource and reference work for students, teachers, and researchers. Equally important, it is a valuable treasure trove of Canadiana - a volume, like a dictionary, atlas or encyclopedia, that should find its way onto the shelves of every home, office, media, public, university and school library. Under the general editorship of Richard Pound, more than 25 researchers, editors and contributors were assigned to research and validate important events and dates in the areas of women's issues, human rights, science and technology, transportation, medicine, communications, art and literature, education, sports, agriculture, music and at least a dozen other areas of national interest.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"A treasure trove of Canadiana for students, teachers, and librarians . . . this reasonably priced resource is recommended for all libraries in Canada and larger libraries in the United States."
-- Library Journal

"A well-researched and comprehensive reference tool that warrants a place in all Canadian libraries . . ."
-- School Library Journal

"The Book of Canadian Facts and Dates has a grand scope. It covers, in chronological order, all of Canadian history from the formation of the country until the end of 2003. This approach lets a reader follow a particular topic or event, such as the War of 1812, as it unfolds over time.
-- FFWD, Calgary

"The balanced, inclusive approach of this volume is apparent from its first pages, where both the scientific theories regarding the creation of Canada (i.e., geographic and climate changes) as well as the Native creation stories are given equal attention."
-- Coutts Canadian-Flavoured Education News
