Membership

The Geographical Names Board of Canada (GNBC) is comprised of 27 members. Its Chair is appointed by the Minister of Natural Resources Canada. Each of the provinces and territories is represented, so also are various federal departments concerned with mapping, archives, defence, translation, Indian reserves, national parks and statistics. As well, the Chairs of two advisory committees (one on toponymy policy and research, the other on automation and delineation) serve as full members of the GNBC.

National Railway Network Partners

The network of partners considered to be 'closest to the source' providers now embarked in the GeoBase NRWN initiative consists of federal, provincial, and territorial departments as well as interested railway network operators.

National Railway Network Maintenance

Maintenance of the NRWN data will be done within the framework of agreements, through partnerships with intergovernmental (federal, provincial, and territorial) and interested operators of the railway network, identified as being the closest to source and capable of offering adequate and current representations of the railway phenomena.

In order to help NRWN data users in their management of the various update releases, updates will be packaged and distributed by change effects (addition, retirement, modification, confirmation). By proceeding in this fashion, identification rules as well as methods for classifying the changes are established.
