The goal of the Canada project is to add and improve profiles of Canadians and people related to Canadian history. Project members contribute in a variety of ways, through working on family groupings, cleaning up profiles, adding sources, merging duplicates and ensuring that the profiles reach the best standard possible. They also offer assistance to others working on Canadian profiles wherever possible.
The Canada Project organises itself into teams. On joining the project you will have the opportunity to contribute to one or more of these teams:
The Ontario Team is a sub-team of the Canada Project. The team focuses on all profiles relating to the province of Ontario.
The Managed Profiles Team are a group of skilled individuals who collaborate on profiles managed and protected by the Canada Project. These profiles may be of notable Canadians, gateway ancestors, or those which might be considered contentious. They seek to raise the standard of these profiles to the highest level possible through research, connecting to the global tree, and through the writing of biographies.
The Profile Improvements Team works on profiles from across the whole of Canada. They focus on sourcing, connecting, biography writing, and as arborists and data doctors.
