Overview

Description: 

Containing resources that present multiple sides of a current issue — including information on key topics of interest to Canadian researchers — this database helps students develop persuasive arguments and essays, better understand controversial issues and develop analytical thinking skills.

Canadian Points of View Reference Centre covers over 200 topics, each with an overview (objective background / description), point (argument) and counterpoint (opposing argument). Each topic features a Guide to Critical Analysis which helps the reader evaluate the controversy and enhances students’ ability to read critically, develop their own perspective on the issues and write or debate an effective argument on the topic.

The database also offers guides to developing arguments, writing position papers and debating. Additionally, this database contains a video encyclopedia of the 20th century, providing students with a searchable collection of some of the most important social, political, and cultural moments of the 20th century.

Subjects include:

  • Aboriginal people
  • Citizens' rights
  • Environment 
  • Global issues
  • Health and medicine
