About this template

This template is the project banner for WikiProject Canada and can also act as a banner for several of its child-projects. (Other banners exist for related projects like {{WikiProject Canadian football}} and {{WikiProject Canada Roads}}.)

The template is to be placed on talk pages (only) of the articles identified as being within the Project's scope (at or near the top of the talkpage).

This template automatically assigns the category Category:WikiProject Canada articles to the articles' talk pages. This category and other associated Project categories are used in various ways by the Project in the overall management of the Project's workload.

This template contains optional parameters, details of usage are given below.

Usage instructions

General syntax options for this template are as follows:

{{WikiProject Canada |class= |importance=}}

The parameters are named, and (if used) must be entered exactly as-is (note, all are lowercase).

The class and importance parameters are associated with the Project's article assessment and rating scheme. These parameters add a category to the talkpage, which category depends on the values chosen.

Other parameters can be added to further identify the article or change its shape. Full syntax options for this template are as follows:

Parameter values

Class

This optional parameter records the Project quality assessment rating currently assigned to the particular article on whose talkpage the project banner appears.

Valid values for this parameter, their associated meanings and categories are given in the table below. Values should be typed as shown (e.g. |class=GA ):

Importance parameter values (Category:Canada-related articles by importance)
Value Meaning Category
Top Reserved for the primary articles. These are considered fundamental to the topic and are mostly overview articles with many links, like Geography of Canada and Manitoba. Top-importance Canada-related articles
High Major topic about Canada, such as Prime Minister of Canada, or CBC; and for needed subtopics of "key" articles High-importance Canada-related articles
Mid For general articles on more specialised (sub-)topics; most articles about Canadian topics go here, such as Greater Napanee, Clarity Act, or Stompin' Tom Connors. Mid-importance Canada-related articles
Low For still notable, but more highly-specialised or even obscure topics; people or things that are only notable in one small region or for a short amount of time; includes most backbench MPs. Low-importance Canada-related articles
