Now that the Canadian Oxford is no longer being updated (since 2005! the team was disbanded in 2008), it appears that a number of institutions and publications within Canada are having a hard time finding a satisfactory substitute that works at all times. As time goes on and language evolves, the CanOx does risk becoming outdated in a few areas. I'd love to hear how you guys are dealing with this!
