Progress[edit]

So far, as of this date, have added all the wikipedia articled waterfalls of Category:Waterfalls of British Columbia, Category:Waterfalls of Alberta, and Category:Waterfalls of Ontario to the list. Need to find some more references and fill in some waterfall criteria for some entries. Need to completely add all the waterfalls of Category:Waterfalls of Canada which have references. Added note in response to List_of_waterfalls_in_British_Columbia SriMesh | talk 03:26, 9 November 2008 (UTC)

Some columns sort nicely in this sortable wikitable, such as waterfall name, province, waterfall type and such. Some don't sort as one would expect such as height and width. SriMesh | talk 03:28, 9 November 2008 (UTC)
There are a LOT of very well sourced and infoboxed waterfall articles added to Category:Waterfalls of Hamilton, Ontario which have just begun to be added.SriMesh | talk 18:18, 9 November 2008 (UTC)
Category:Waterfalls of Quebec and Category:Waterfalls of Saskatchewan are also added.SriMesh | talk 20:21, 9 November 2008 (UTC)
Measurements for heights...A discussion has been started regarding highest and largest at the WikiProject Geography of Canada talk page. For all intensive purposes on the List of waterfalls in Canada article, the heights and widths are those cited in the reference or source given in the source column. If more information is needed regarding waterfall height and number of drops and height of drops click on the source link for more info, or on the wikipedia link for the waterfall. SriMesh | talk 04:17, 10 November 2008 (UTC)

Klehini Falls[edit]

Didn't add Klehini Falls. See note on talk page of article about references. SriMesh | talk 03:30, 9 November 2008 (UTC)

Hmmm[edit]

The Chaudière River waterfalls are missing. Those are notable enough that a MRC and an electoral district were named after them. The chute Kabir Kouba of the Saint-Charles River is also a notable attraction. Both do tend to be overshadowed by the grander, better publicized Montmorency, though. Circeus (talk) 02:24, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

Ok added the three Chutes-de-la-Chaudière - two in Quebec and one in Ontario. Then added the Image:Chutes chaudieres.jpg. The image description says Les chutes de la rivière Chaudière vu de la passerelle du parc des Chutes de la Chaudière, and the geonames site places this park within 2 kilometres (1.2 mi) of these falls and not the other falls of Quebec ...This one...Chute Kabir Kouba was much easier to add. Thank you very much for your comment.SriMesh | talk 03:59, 11 November 2008 (UTC)
The "Ontarian" one is quite likely the French name for the Chaudière Falls IMHO, and the other French one is likely an entry for the eponymous park surrounding the falls, so I kept a single entry, and commented out the two others (all the references pointed to the same place, though, so my conclusions might be incorrect). Circeus (talk) 04:50, 11 November 2008 (UTC)
All the references pointed to Geonames Government of Canada which listed 4 Chaudiere falls, 1 in English, and 3 in French, wich 4 separate coordinates. I could only find one near the park, the english spelling has its own site on wikipedia. Kind Regards SriMesh | talk 01:24, 13 November 2008 (UTC)

Hunlen Falls[edit]

I just created this as I'd come across its BCGNIS entry, which had some height info. However, that height info differs from what in this article (365 meters/1,198 ft ), citing 1300 ft, 850-900 in the first cascade from Turner Lake, then another 400 into the Atnarko River. BCGNIS cites BC Parks as it source for this. Is there a more recent, more official measure than this. "Hunlen Falls". BC Geographical Names.  is the cite.Skookum1 (talk) 01:16, 22 May 2009 (UTC)

Klinaklini Falls/Klini Klini Falls[edit]

The two external links on Kleena Kleene both mention this set of waterfalls, but it's not in BCGNIS. Anybody heard of them?Skookum1 (talk) 01:16, 22 May 2009 (UTC)

Monkman Falls and Kinuseo Falls[edit]

I just created these; I'm uncertain of Monkman Falls is in Monkman Provincial Park or not and don't have any height information; Kinuseo Falls is either 197' or 225', depending on which source is used (the first is in the Monkman Park article, the other is from BCGNIS, which says it's the 5th highest). If anyone woudl care to add them to the article, there's an image of Kinuseo Falls on its page and maybe the elevation/ranking issue can be resolved.Skookum1 (talk) 02:09, 29 May 2009 (UTC)

SOS SOS SOS!!![edit]

This page is in brutal shape right now. Pretty much any error you can think of is on this page. I apologize if this offends anyone; some of you probably have worked hard to keep this page in good shape but this bad boy has a mind of its own. When I get time I'm going to make some MAJOR changes to this page to make sure it doesn't get out of our grasp again.

I won't bite you if you ask me what I don't like about this page at the moment but don't expect me to tell you everything I don't like about it because there is just so much for me to complain about. Seriously, the only way I could explain every grievance I have about this page would be via a long, 5 minute long video of me just ranting about my dislike for this page's current state. I don't think anyone wants that do they now? Thought so! AndrewEnns (talk) 04:08, 6 July 2009 (UTC)

Though I don't have the time to help clean a whole lot of this up myself, I can see that it desperately needs work. I would suggest, simply for the sake of simplification and readability, that this article should be reverted to a simple list linking to the various articles which have already been created, similar to the List_of_waterfalls article. There's just too much information that is being squeezed in here right now, and its too easily made erroneous (especially with the tables being edited the way they are).
Bryan Swan | World Waterfall Database (talk) 07:24, 24 November 2009 (UTC)
Suggest bulleting in the intro, and some distinction in terms between the senses of "highest" and "largest", and maybe a distinction between "widest" and "largest" also ("largest" would seem to have to do, to me, with volume).Skookum1 (talk) 19:46, 29 January 2010 (UTC)

Number format needs fixing for sort reasons[edit]

I just tried to sort the BC section to try and get a listing by height; it doesn't work, 3, 33, 335 all come in sequence, and 1, 10, 1000 in another sequence. I don't know how to fix the number format, or what to use, but I do know such sorts work in other tables for other things; but maybe List of waterfalls in Canada by height would be a simpler solution.Skookum1 (talk) 19:46, 29 January 2010 (UTC)

Remove Falls[edit]

There are a lot of red links and a huge lack of pictures. Should we remove some waterfalls? I think some small ones, without pictures and pages. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 99.246.231.51 (talk) 23:34, 25 February 2011 (UTC)

elevation/height sort in BC section doesn't work right[edit]

Maybe the same is true of the other sections, I just tried sorting the BC section by height of falls and it doesn't come out in the proper order.....is that because of the inclusion of the elevation in feet; would using the conversion template work better maybe? Many of these much higher ones do have BC Names listing, so I'll make stubs, though their elevations are in the World Waterfall Database, rarely in a BC govt site. Shannon Falls is touted in its article, with a cite from BC Parks, as being third highest....and it's a cascade and tiered, not a free fall like some of the much higher ones like Alfred Creek Falls or Francis Falls.Skookum1 (talk) 03:28, 30 April 2013 (UTC)

Blacklisted Links Found on the Main Page[edit]

Cyberbot II has detected that page contains external links that have either been globally or locally blacklisted. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed, or are highly innappropriate for Wikipedia. This, however, doesn't necessarily mean it's spam, or not a good link. If the link is a good link, you may wish to request whitelisting by going to the request page for whitelisting. If you feel the link being caught by the blacklist is a false positive, or no longer needed on the blacklist, you may request the regex be removed or altered at the blacklist request page. If the link is blacklisted globally and you feel the above applies you may request to whitelist it using the before mentioned request page, or request it's removal, or alteration, at the request page on meta. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. The whitelisting process can take its time so once a request has been filled out, you may set the invisible parameter on the tag to true. Please be aware that the bot will replace removed tags, and will remove misplaced tags regularly.

Below is a list of links that were found on the main page:

  • http://www.traveljournals.net/explore/canada/map/m795351/chats_falls.html
    Triggered by \btraveljournals\.net\b on the local blacklist

If you would like me to provide more information on the talk page, contact User:Cyberpower678 and ask him to program me with more info.

From your friendly hard working bot.—cyberbot II NotifyOnline 19:37, 8 December 2013 (UTC)


 Resolved This issue has been resolved, and I have therefore removed the tag, if not already done. No further action is necessary.—cyberbot II NotifyOnline 01:44, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

Clean up Needed[edit]

This page is in pretty bad shape, a lot of different ideas put together, I think I will tackle this page in a few weeks if no one does it first. Probably separate the list by there own provincial pages, maybe include them in the page such as list of rivers of New Brunswick all nicely tied in with all the rest of the bodies of water in New Brunswick here, Also take the pictures out and leave them in the articles themselves. Any objections or suggestions before I do this. Please place it here.23:23, 28 December 2013 (UTC)

Odd edits[edit]

I reverted your edits on List of waterfalls of Canada. Both entries were about legitimate waterfalls. Care to explain?--Auric talk 16:42, 3 January 2014 (UTC)

  • I am moving/cleaning up the article for New Brunswick and placing them in with the List of bodies of water of New Brunswick articles for Brunswick. (If you move to the New Brunswick Article section, you will see a way to view all the bodies of water here) It makes more sense in my opinion as this page is in pretty rough shape. I asked people over a week if they had any objections on the Talk Page. No one replied so I began moving the article gradually.16:50, 3 January 2014 (UTC)
  • I am sort of envisioning the page eventually to become more like List of rivers of Canada as the current layout is very confusing, but that would be a huge undertaking right now as the current page is has a lot of redundant information.17:06, 3 January 2014 (UTC)
Okay, I see. In future, though, a descriptive edit summary would have cleared this up a lot faster.--Auric talk 17:39, 3 January 2014 (UTC)
Okay, good to know. I am glad someone else monitors these pages other than me. Thanks again17:42, 3 January 2014 (UTC)

Web sites have changed[edit]

The url http://www.world-waterfalls.com now redirects to http://www.waterfallsnorthwest.com, and this database only includes the U.S. states of Washington, Oregon, and Idaho - nothing in Canada. The Canadian falls are at https://www.worldwaterfalldatabase.com, so many of the references in this article are now dead. I have started putting in the new links but there is a long way to go. In addition, the new website gives updated/changed classes and waterfall types. I have not found any other source for this information, so I have started updating this information from the website (in addition to adding coordinate info where needed). If there are any objections or if anyone has a more official source of information, please holler. Leschnei (talk) 21:02, 17 June 2017 (UTC)

I didn't realize, until I started working on this, how many of the information on these waterfalls is based on blogs and other potentially unreliable sources. Does Canada have any kind of official record, kind of like GNIS? Leschnei (talk) 22:23, 18 June 2017 (UTC)
