I have been awarded 2nd place in the educational category of the Canadian Blog Awards. I’m taking that designation with a grain of salt as there are many excellent Canadian educational blogs that weren’t even mentioned in the process. Thus, I’d like to start a list of active, longer-term, Canadian educational blogs. Here are the ones I know from memory, listed in no particular order. I will likely start a wikied list in the near future.

Allright. Who am I missing?
Update: I’ve created a wiki link. You’ll need to join the wikispace to add or edit the list. It would be great if we could categorize these as well.
Well done and deserved, Alec. But second? I voted for you 6 times!
Just kidding. It was more like 8 times. :-)
So I have no idea of what criteria you are using (other than “located in Canada” “written by an individual” and “about elearning”) but here are a bunch of other Canucks I follow (though many of them are sporadic posters at best. Maybe this will prompt them out of slumber).
Cyprien Lomas 42/1 (UBC) – http://radio.weblogs.com/0100115/
Jim Sibley (UBC) – http://cis.apsc.ubc.ca/wordpress/
Stephanie Chu (SFU) – http://blog.lidc.sfu.ca/stephanie/
Christopher Brooks (USask) – http://netrpg.com/blog/

Terry Anderson (Athabasca) – http://me2u.athabascau.ca/elgg/terrya/weblog/
A good exercise because it got me to clean out my aggregator a bit too. Now let’s see this post get past the spam filters!
Congrats and Good list Alec. There are few on the list I haven’t found yet and will be visiting soon. I have thought often about the number of prominent Canadian edubloggers. One thing I have thought about one day creating is a geo-marked map edublogger locations. Think cluster map on steroids.
Well done, Alec!
I like to think of mine as a Canadian edublog: http://paulhami.edublogs.org “Free Resources from the Net for (Special) Education” –Paul
Congrats Alec and well deserved!! It is a great list you have and I will visit them soon.
Congrats! That is great that you have been recognized for your contributions!
I add to your congratulations Alec. It takes a lot of dedication to provide what I consider a valuable resource. (virtual pat on the back). I wish I could contribute to the list, but I dare go near all of these submissions!
Congratulations, Alec. I hope to one day be able to provide such a valuable resource to my students. Thank you for the additional blogs.
I’m a Canadian and I have an educational blog (focused on virtual schooling). See http://virtualschooling.wordpress.com
