Awesome, can I say more? please keep the good work and update this blog often.
This site fascinates me and is very good.
Nice blog. Happy blogging
GeoBC should definitely make this list, it’s the major hub for BC geospatial data, which includes the underlying Land and Resource Data Warehouse.
Great site, a lot of great information here – thanks!
I am impressed with all the Geomatics information posted here, my friend. The color of the layout is also cool and effortless on the eyes. Would love more sites like this from others.
Will definitely needr Vancouver area data
I agree that GeoBC should be on the list as well. Keep on updating this blog by the way.
I really enjoy what I am seeing so far.
Acknowledge that you learn just as much, if not more, from your failures as you do from your successes.
Another data portal to add to your list:

Thanks so much for this compilation of data sources! As a researcher in the US doing large scale mapping and modeling that crosses political borders, I’m often searching for Canadian data and am unfamiliar with the many resources out there.
Does anyone know of GIS data that includes the coordinates of Canadian border crossings?
Thanks in advance for the help.
Looking for GIS Data (Wells, Roads, Oil and Gas, etc etc) for the Northwest Territories. I was able to find what I needed for BC (OGCBC) and the Yukon (Geomatics Yukon) but nothing for the NWT. Any suggestions?
Sorry for the delayed response, just noticed your question in the comments que. I dont have a lot of information about data in the Northwest Territories but I would start with the NWT Centre for Geomatics http://geomatics.gov.nt.ca
