Maybe I am blind, but the link to the www12.statcan.ca page, I cannot see (or find) anything about "population division cartographic boundary".

Do you have a more specific URL I can try? Did they re-design their page, eh?

Re: Section 7.2 Cannot find Canadian Mapinfo data
Jerry,

It does appear they rearranged their site a bit. I think the informatin we discussed is now located at

http://www.statcan.gc.ca/mgeo/boundary-limite-eng.htm

Though they seem to force you to answer a question if you want to take a survey, Just saying No gets you in the main site fast and then redirects you the link.

We'll update teh appendix. Thanks for alerting us to the change.

Re: Section 7.2 Cannot find Canadian Mapinfo data
Oops actually noticed the old link we have on 7.2 reidrects you to the new link, but I think they changed the title of the doc.

Its called

Population Ecumene Census Division Cartographic Boundary File

Also keep in mind they send you to some kind of wizard page that asks you what format to download the file. The MapInfo one is the one we were discussing in Chapter 7.2 and when you unzip the file it extracts to a folder with several mapinfo files in it.

Thanks,
Regina

Merci.

I took French about 40 years ago, but never learned "Ecumene" ;-(
