  1. History - Historic events, incorporation history²
  2. Geography - Geographic setting, geographical features, climate, communities/neighbourhoods
  3. Demographics - Use Canada 2016 Census data where available (2016 Census Profiles)
  4. Economy - Dominant industries, agriculture if applicable, major employers
  5. Arts and culture - Cultural venues, festivals and significant cultural events
  6. Attractions - Museums and other points of interest, parks (local, regional, provincial parks), recreation venues
  7. Sports - Sport teams and significant athletic events

Other topics may include sister cities, notable people
12. See also - Related Wikipedia articles, if not already detailed in other sections
13. References - Citations per Verifiability, see Citing sources, use {{reflist}}, also books and further external sources
14. External links - Official link of the community only, be aware of Wikipedia:External links
15. Footers - The following optional entries per WP:Footers:
Geography and place navigational box - optional, use {{Adjacent communities}}
Navigational box(es) - see available Canadian templates, but use only relevant navigational boxes, and be aware of Wikipedia:Avoid template creep
Coordinates - use {{Coord|display=title|region:CA_type:city}} to geo-tag articles, but only if not already presented in infobox
Categories - don't over-categorize
Stub tags - for new short pages that should be subsequently expanded, see available stub tags
¹ For larger cities, this should be little more a link to a separate "Media of City" article. This section should only list media which are locally based.
² For incorporated places only
