Take the survey
In 2005, the Royal Canadian Geographical Society launched the Canadian Atlas Online (CAOL). In the next few months, the Society is developing twelve new thematic modules with new educational resources for teachers and students prepared by Can Geo Education (CCGE).

The CCGE is seeking your input on the CAOL Learning Centre in order to improve its content and functionality.

Please take a few moments to describe your experience with the Learning Centre and to offer your opinions on how to make the lesson plans even better for classroom use.

Upon completing the survey your name will be entered in a draw to win The Canadian Atlas: Our Nation, Environment and People (2004) a value of $75.
