The following is a selection of print sources — by no means comprehensive — that have been used in researching the information that appears in The Canada Guide, in addition to the online sources cited in the individual chapters themselves and the sources mentioned on the more information page. Even when older publications have been used, I have done my best to ensure that all statistics and figures cited come from the most up-to-date sources.
