We suggest using the following resources.
The Canadian Encyclopedia – This thorough collection of resources covers most Canadian options, but also looks at the local impact of globally renowned individuals and their innovations. It also provides links and a bibliography for easy access.
Britannica.com – This is a good starting point for general information.
You will need to search your innovation within these websites.

Here are some other very useful resources you can pick up at the Laurier Virtual Library.
Resources for the CHC2O Included are the Virtual Library Catalogue, Canadian Points of View and Global Issues in Context.
Before you can access the database list, remember to indicate that you’re in Gr 9-12.
In some cases, using Google might be a good bet. Ask yourself the following questions though…
- Who created the information you’re using? Are they a trustworthy source? Why or why not?
- When was the information created? Is it out of date or premature maybe?
- Is there any implicit (or explicit) bias that you should take into account?
Remember where to find help creating a Bibliography in Chicago form.
You may need to refer to Laurier’s handy Chicago Style handout. The file can be found right here at Chicago Citation at Laurier.
