Starting today, the popular citizenship study guide, Discover Canada: The Rights and Responsibilities of Citizenship, is available as an integrated audio eBook download, Minister of Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism Jason Kenney announced today.

"“I’m pleased to launch the audio eBook version of Discover Canada just in time for Canada Day,”" said Minister Kenney. "“This is yet another way those studying for the citizenship test can learn about Canada’s history, values, symbols and important institutions.”"

The audio eBook allows people to conveniently hear the text of the guide being read aloud as they follow along on their e-readers, smart phones and tablets.

Since the launch of Discover Canada in 2009, almost one million hard copies have been distributed. In addition, almost 400,000 copies have been downloaded online and there have been over 1.5 million hits to the Discover Canada Web page. Discover Canada is one of the most widely read government publications in Canadian history.

Citizenship and Immigration Canada was the first Government of Canada department to produce an eBook, which has garnered almost 60,000 downloads in the past year and a half. This new version combines the convenience of a book that can be read on a portable tablet with an audio guide.

Well-known English Canadians such as the Right Honourable Adrienne Clarkson and Mr. Ian Hanomansing, among others, lent their voices for portions of the English eBook and Mr. Jean-Benoît Rainville is one of the voices for the French version. This integrated audio eBook will be particularly valuable to those who are still strengthening their proficiency in French or English.

"“This guide helps newcomers integrate into Canadian society and become fully contributing citizens. It is also an excellent source for established Canadians to find out more about our history and the pioneers that helped to build this great country,”" said Minister Kenney.
