Vital Canadian articles
The list of vital Canadian articles is here. Notwithstanding the significance of the article subjects, many of the articles are in need of improvement.
Articles in dispute
These are articles are tagged as having either their neutrality or accuracy in dispute.
- Athabasca University Students' Union (disputed neutrality; notability?)
- Atomic Energy of Canada Limited (disputed neutrality)
- Bombardier (disputed neutrality)
- Canadian identity (disputed neutrality)
- Canadian nationalism (disputed neutrality)
- Canadian Wheat Board (POV, edit wars)
- Gordon Campbell (disputed neutrality)
- Grant Neufeld (NPOV)
- Lara Roxx (disputed neutrality)
- Le Livre noir du Canada Anglais (disputed neutrality)
- Nickle Resolution (neutrality, reads more like an argumentative essay in parts)
- Ottawa municipal election, 2006 (factual accuracy)
- Regent Park (dispute neutrality -- apparently the residents don't care for the environment, abuse social programs, etc.)
- René Lévesque (disputed neutrality)
- Rural Division has been changed to Saskatchewan Rivers School Division(NPOV)
- Stephanie Pakrul (disputed neutrality)
- Surrey School Board & Mary Polak (disputed neutrality)
- Val-Jalbert, Quebec (disputed neutrality)
- History of Chinese immigration to Canada - this currently is turning into something much more than "immigration" and shoudl be retitled to History of the Chinese in Canada or something like that; or its non-immigration material should be excised; there are tons of overlap between this and other chinese-Canadian articles, which are abundant and disproportionate to coverage of any othe group; and all highly POV due to the POV nature/tone of latter-day press/academic coverage. I've been trying to add gold rush-era material but haven't had a lot of time to do so; when I first found this article it mimicked/transposed US history on Canadian (a fault which Canadian Chinese organizations such as the CCNC seem in no hurry to correct). This article needs de-POV'ing and there's more content that can be added, including immigration/departure figures and a more frank discussion of anti-Chinse-immigration policies/debates than the usual "they were just racists" tone; ethnohistory articles should NOT be written only from the perspective of the ethnic group in question, nor should they be policied to maintain an ethno-biased POV.....(see Talk:Chinese Canadian for a sampling of such ethno-biaed POVs). I know this sounds "testy" and I guess it is; like others in Canada I'm getting tired of having "my" history rewritten to suit ethnic-atonement agendas and the brow-beating tone of such articles (this one's a lot better than when I found it, but still it's been an edit war at times). I'm leaving Wikipedia after next weekend (for quite a while, if not forever) so am leaving notes on things I know need doing; this is a big one, and its existence also implies, for fairness:
- etc ad nauseam.
Articles to expand
These are articles that are stubs or in need of expansion
- Stubs: People, Politicians, Quebecers, Writers, Musicians
- Catherine Galliford (currently just a stub article) is the RCMP corporal who has brought forward allegations of extensive sexual harassment within the RCMP, and is now set to testify against the RCMP, on behalf of Pickton's victims and their families, at the Missing Women Commission of Inquiry.
- Ned Goodman
- Libby Burnham
- Diane Urquhart
- Judi Tyabji, currently a broadcaster, formerly the party house leader (or whip?) during Gordon Wilson's tenure as BC Liberal Party leader; she and Wilson were forced to resign when news of their affair became public; they split to form the Progressive-Democratic Alliance and both remain political commentators in BC politics. This has a ten-day delete warning on it, and someone had tried to prod Judi Tyabji Wilson which is how I noticed/found it. Needs references urgently to prevent deletion.

- Richard Burnett

- Guy Carleton, 1st Baron Dorchester — a complicated and controversial figure, he's been called the "Father of British Canada" (), the best British general in America during the American Revolution, and credited (or blamed) for inspiring and enacting the Quebec Act of 1774. A hugely important person, but you would not know it from the current state of his Wikipedia article.
- Sylvia Tyson I'm shocked there wasn't a page until I created one, but I don't flatter myself that I did her justice. Pref. needs someone who can add info on her impact on the early Canadian folk music scene, and her impact on the arts in Canada.--Anchoress 11:20, 8 April 2006 (UTC)
- Larysa Harapyn
- Michael Dunahee - article was posted to AfD as it was nothing more than a missing persons poster. I have rewritten it, however if anyone - particularaly from BC - with a greater knowledge of the case can add anything, it would be appreciated. Resolute 03:22, 19 July 2006 (UTC)

These articles are tagged as needing to be cleaned up to conform to a higher standard of quality.
Sometimes, articles are written which mistakenly link to disambiguation pages, or even directly to incorrect topics. These need to be monitored from time to time to ensure that incorrect links are replaced. Some such pages are listed here; if you want to assist in cleaning up links, use the "what links here" page on the given article, and correct the link in any case where you are sure that the actual intended topic is the Canadian one. If you're unsure, please post to WP:CANTALK for assistance. Also please add other pages here which need this type of monitoring, if known.
Please note that as there are always new articles being written, this is a permanent list that needs ongoing monitoring. Accordingly, please do not remove a location from this list just because you've cleaned up all the incorrect links that existed at one specific time, as new incorrect links will invariably exist again in the future.
Links to wrong article
Fixing this type of incorrect link is the top priority.
- Churchill (redir to Winston Churchill) --> Churchill, Manitoba or Churchill (electoral district)
- Cornwall (article about county in England) --> Cornwall, Ontario, also the Cornwall Ranch (Ashcroft Manor) and adjoining Cornwall Hills
- Dauphin (article about the royal connotations) --> Dauphin, Manitoba

- Selkirk (article about town in Scotland) --> Selkirk, Manitoba or Selkirk (electoral district) or Selkirk Mountains
- Truro (article about town in England) --> Truro, Nova Scotia
These should be corrected whenever possible, although since the dab page offers a link to the correct article it's not as crucial to fix these promptly as it is to fix links to the wrong article altogether.
