Way to go, eh!
As a Canadian who's learned to spell a lot of words the American way I really appreciate this dictionary. Only gripe I have with it is it's missing a small handful of obscure words like "diatomaceous".
Ik heb alleen op een technische school drie jaar Engels geleerd, met de nadruk op Technisch. Nu ben ik meer nodig dan alleen maar technisch, en daarbij komt me dit goed van pas.
However, the Canadian spelling of Gemology is Gemmology
There are so many words missing from this dictionary, it's very incomplete.
It must be complicated to be a native English speaking Canadian, some words are okay in the British form like adjectives with the -sized/-sised suffixes or some words being like American English not British English and I'm not speaking of words like "colour" are okay with the u but some more obscure ones must be written the American way.

Really great stuff: It works as advertised and fills a need.
Thanks very much for working on this -and for making it available.
Yes, the metre (Right along with a litre (fluid)) being Canada's base units of measure are rather big ones to miss?
Not sure what to tell you - both metre an litre are in the dictionary! Please verify that you have "English (Canada)" selected as your spelling language, and send me an email if you still have trouble.
It's a good start, but the following words are missing. Thank you Creator:
toonie - 2 dollar coin
touque is the proper spelling for winter hat
Humidex - What the weather feels like
Eavestrough - roof gutter- it's one word
Parkade - a building where you park your car that spirals upwards.
Metre - Canadian Metric measurement, also to save space. mm, cm, dm, m, km - Meter is the US way.
mickie - 375mm bottle of liquor
soaker - foot ware being wet from something while you are wearing it.
I could go on, but these are pretty common ones. Keep Up the Good Work!
Thanks for the review - I've added most of your suggestions to the next release. Metre was already present - please send me an email if you still have trouble with that one.
I do have to disagree with one suggestion - 375mL of liquor is actually a "mickey" according to the Canadian Oxford Dictionary.
Works great, thanks!

So you wanna write like a Canadian eh? This is the add-on for you.
Very usefull. I've been using it for years.
Great add-on! Now a Chesterfield is truly a sofa!!! ;)
It works great nearly all the time, though still come across having to manually add words which ought to be in here by default. Also, is there absolutely no way to sync so that words already added are always saved even when after a system restore?
Something that helps a lot in essays, it catches a lot of mistakes I would have made if I had kept it as UK English.
Great help... sure the plural thing bugs me a bit, but other than that It serves my needs just fine
Thank you! Finally I can write "cheque" and it is not annoyingly underlined in red... :)
Excellent dictionary, eh!
I have used this many times and found it to be good every time.
I'd be lost without this add-on! I've only come across a very few number of words that are not in the Canadian English Dictionary.
programme & recognise to name only a few. FAIL!
"Programme" is considered a secondary spelling - many of those words were excluded from the list simply to save space. I'll get it added to the next version.
In Canadian English, however, "-ise" is considered incorrect. Only a handful of words are exceptions to that general rule:
One suggestion might be to have an option to suggest addition of missing words.
Flags all plurals as an error so each must be added to the dictionary. Does the same with words in past tense ending with ed.
Also causes Thunderbird to crash 100% of the time when exiting the program. Nothing is lost as you were closing the program normally anyway.
update to 2.0.3 it fixes the FF crashes and has all the words you love back in.
