Canadian Points of View Reference Centre

Canadian Points of View Reference Centre contains 185 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.

Available in its own user-friendly interface, Canadian Points of View Reference Centre provides a balance of materials from all viewpoints, including main essays, leading political magazines, newspapers, radio and television news transcripts, primary source documents, reference books and a series of titles from World Public Opinion. 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.
