Welcome to WikiProject North America. Several Wikipedians have formed this collaboration resource and group dedicated to improving Wikipedia's coverage of North America and the organization of information and articles on this topic. This page and its subpages contain their suggestions and various resources; it is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of other Wikipedians interested in the topic. If you would like to help, please join the project, inquire on the talk page and see the to-do list below.

Welcome to WikiProject North America!

Goals[edit]

  • To balance articles with transnational scope, which currently have focus on one region or country
  • To reduce content conflicts from national points-of-view on shared issues between nations of North America
  • To expand coverage on North American topics that predate the establishment of the countries and states of North America
