Resources on Open Access in Canada

For various reasons, I've been collecting some resources around open access, open data and scientific and technological innovation in Canada. Since they might be more broadly useful that to just me, I thought I'd share them.

Of course, this list is incomplete. I've most likely left out whole swaths of stuff out there, both in terms of organizations and relevant posts and articles as well as institutional OA mandates and author funds I may have missed. Please feel free to suggest items in the comments.

One thing in particular I would like to add in a future iteration is a list of library/university-based OA journal publication programs. Feel free to add yours in the comments!

The HLWiki Open Access set of pages is here. There were very useful in compiling my lists below. The Open Access Directory is also a good general source.

The UNESCO Global Open Access Portal page on Canada is here.

Thanks, Peter. Great idea, one I probably should have thought of myself. I've already noticed one or two things I should add.
