Take the Dominion Institute's Canada Day Quiz

How much do you know about Canada? After reading a story in the National Post about our appalling levels of "civic literacy", I decided to take the Dominion Institute's Canada Day Quiz myself. While I agree with critics that much of the Institute's quiz tests one's knowledge of arcane Canadian trivia and thus doesn't necessarily reflect one's "civic literacy", I still managed a respectable 77%. The quiz doesn't have an interactive on-line version, so you'll need a pencil & paper for this.

Quiz can be found here .
Answers are here .
