“How Canadian Are You, Eh?”
Citizenship and Immigration Minister Jason Kenney has launched a Facebook application which can test your knowledge of Canadian history, values, symbols and political institutions in a fun and educational way. It consists of a quiz containing 20 randomly selected questions from a bank of 122.
The application can be downloaded to mobile devices like iPhone, Blackberry and Android. It can be found within Facebook, at the iTunes app store, in the Blackberry app world, and in the Android marketplace. It is part of an on-line resource named “A Fun Path to Learning” which was launched in April 2010 by CIC aimed at helping students from grades 5 to 12 learn about Canada’s history and political institutions through games and activities.
