Work on the CNVC is ongoing and updates are made to the site as portions of the classification are confirmed. Check this page for the most recently developed and updated material.

Updates to the Website

A new version of the website was launched in June 2015. Currently, most of the new or redesigned pages are only available in English, but French translations are in progress. The information contained in the new version of the site is essentially the same as the previous version, but it is displayed in a format that we hope will make it more useable. Please feel free to contact the webmaster with any concerns or comments.
