Some Canadianisms (e.g., UHIP, the First Nations people, LCBO, loonie, francophone) were well recognized.
Results tabulated from the survey of teachers indicate that seven of the eight teachers (accounting for 87.5%) claimed to have taught the Canadianism loonie in class; five (62.5%) had taught GST, the First Nations, and RCMP; four (50%) had taught anglophone, premier, toonie, PST, and francophone; three (37.5%) had taught LCBO, two-four, Canuck, and have province; two (25%) had taught impaired driving, bachelor, and whiteout; and one (12.5%) had taught UHIP, Canadian Tire money, have-not province, crown corporation, baby bonus, and OHIP.
They were familiar with some Canadianisms (e.g., UHIP, the First Nations people, LCBO) and unfamiliar with others (e.g., band council, have-not province, chip wagon).
Project costs for the new centre are being offset by a substantial contribution from the Millennium Commission, which is backing the UHIp
with an overall grant of more than pounds 33 million.
