    Civilopedia:
    Special thanks to Stainz for had written the Civilopedia.

    The first settlers on Canadian soil are believed to be peoples of Asiatic decent who migrated via the Aleutian land bridge to the continent between 12 and 30 thousand years ago. By 10,000 B.C., several tribes were spread across almost 4,000,000 square miles. An elaborate social system, with economic and military networks would arise by 500 B.C.
    The first European visitors were the Norsemen at the turn of the first millennium, setting camp in modern-day Newfoundland and trading with local native tribes. Canada was not permanently settled until the arrival of the French in the early 16th century. Jacques Cartier's misunderstanding of the native word [kanata], meaning [village] or [settlement], gave rise to the name 'Canada' for the land as a whole. A series of treaties shifted control of the region from the English to the French in 1679, back to England in 1713, to France again in 1748, and finally under British control once more in 1763.
    England's Constitutional Act of 1791 saw the province of Quebec divided into Upper and Lower Canada. After the American Revolution many United Empire Loyalists left the United States and emigrated to Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Quebec. The division into Upper and Lower Canada gave the Loyalists who settled west of the Ottawa River the chance to organize and develop along their own lines.
    Lord Durham published a report in 1840 that called for the union of the two territories into one. In 1841, the Act of Union created the territory which was given Cartier's term 'Canada'. The treaty of 1842 settled the boundary between the United States and the British territories in the east; and by the treaty of 1846 the 49th parallel was agreed upon as the boundary from the Rocky Mountains to the Pacific. In the east, in 1840, Upper and Lower Canada were reunited as the province of Canada.
    In 1867 the British North America Act brought together the provinces of Canada, divided into Ontario and Quebec, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, to form the Dominion of Canada. In 1869, having acquired the rights from the Hudson's Bay Company, the Dominion transformed the former Rupert's Land and the area beyond the Rocky Mountains into the North West Territories. In 1870, the old Red River settlement joined the Dominion as the province of Manitoba. In 1871 British Columbia joined the union. In 1873 Prince Edward Island joined Confederation.
    World War I saw the coming of age of Canada as a nation and the disillusionment of a generation concerning Empire and causes. WWI was the most costly conflict that Canada was ever involved with and was mainly fought to support the political aims and ambitions of the British Empire, although Canada's role earned it a seat in the League of Nations. Later, the country's military role in global affairs would be developed through peacekeeping.
    The role of the United Nations supplying forces to keep the peace was first suggested by Canadian Prime Minister Lester B. Pearson, when he was serving at the UN as Canada's representative. This idea has become one of the central fixtures in UN activities throughout the world. Pearson was awarded a Nobel Peace Prize for the inspiration and Canada has become the most important and respected player in peacekeeping duties throughout the world.
    As an affluent, high-tech industrial society, Canada today closely resembles the US in its market-oriented economicsystem, pattern of production, and high living standards. Since World War II, the impressive growth of the manufacturing, mining, and service sectors has transformed the nation from a largely rural economy into one primarily industrial and urban. With its great natural resources, skilled labour force, and modern capital plant Canada enjoys solid economic standing as a member of the global "Group of 7", along with the United States, Japan, Germany, Italy,Great Britain and France.

    Montie, the UU:
    Replaces Cavalry, all terrains as road (PTW-C3C) or one extra offensive point (Vanilla), the unit comes together with these files.

    Woah! He makes a better Roman leaderhead than the Firaxis Ceasar! D'ya think that meybee you could re-do the last Era without the Canadian Flag and maybee something like a Legion one in the Background (Red flag with the golden letters S P Q R something relatively easy like that) if it wouldn't be too much trouble? I obviously have no Idea how much work this would be, but, pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeease?
    It looks great but I don't have a Canadian Civ, so, with the Canadian flag in the background I won't get a chance to use it!
    Or
    As another suggestion (but probably more work) a generic office background so people can use it for more than Canada alone. I mean no offense to Canada but I tend to play on world maps and use more "native" start locations (Turks starting in Asia, Canada inhabited by Iriquois etc...)

    I'm doing severals leaderheads these days, I have a big list, but it is my favourite hobby, I love when this list grows :D If u have a request, post ;)
    The mounted unit was added in Canadian civ, check the last link of the firt post, there is a image of it.


    His tooth is okay, maybe the view (angle) does he look like without thooth :lol:


    Actily, a new background as your suggestion is not hard to be done, but, by accident, I deleted all the files of Canadian civilization :( :cry: :mad: , I just have the files that I uploaded and other few files, for this reason, I'm not able to do changes at this time. For luck I deleted after have uploaded here. I save all the essencial files of my civis for future changes, if I'd like to do anyone in Canadian civ in the future, I'll have to made again the Trudeau leaderhead, all the eras :eek: Well, accidents happen...

    @To other fellows: thanks for all the support, suggestions and ellogies!!! :love:

    Ah yes, but that's a Bandit unit. There was an actual Mountie unit. Check it out.

    And for the leaderheads, do you think you could maybe add Alija Izetbegovic of the Bosnians to your to do list? I can provide you with info/pics when you need them.

    Trudeau read alot of classical history/ philosophy, so the Roman-esque ancient picture works for him. I suppose that it would make more sense for a Canadian leader to be dressed in a big fur-lined parka or something like that in that period, but I like this leaderhead too much to criticise it.

    The industrial age picture looks a bit like Darrel Sittler from the famous Russia-Canada hockey match in '71 (I think it was '71??).

    Nice one! :goodjob: I've been looking for a Canadian Leaderhead. I haven't tested it yet, but when I have I'll get back to you. Also, I request an Astralian Civ. I know one already exists, but it's a bit crap.

    Indeed I am. It's not very good IMO. I am a fan of Attila and Yacoub though.

    You have the right to your opinion, but calling someones work "a piece of crap" is uncalled for.

    Hehe. Anyway, I've tested out the Canadian Leader and I've decided to keep it. One thing though, the blue bruise around his eye on the defeated pcx looks really fake, and crap.
