Here are some of my favourite web sites.
The profile sites contain census information such as income brackets, population & education levels, as well as a wealth of business information. As well, each profile site contains a direct link to that community's official web site. I'm sure you'll find them very interesting.
The C.M.H.C site contains a huge amount of information regards home ownership, renovating, and even rental guidelines. I hope you find them as engaging as I do.
