In 1991 M&S acquired Hurtig Publishers Ltd. of Edmonton. The widely acclaimed Canadian Encyclopedia and The Junior Encyclopedia of Canada are among the works which M&S inherited in that transaction. One of the by-products of the Hurtig takeover was the publication in late 1991 of The Canadian Encyclopedia on CD-ROM, M&S's first computer-based title, followed in 1993 by a multimedia version, and in 1995 the spectacular new version, The Canadian Encyclopedia Plus which became the most successful reference CD-ROM ever produced in Canada, followed by updated and expanded editions, including the fully bilingual version of The 2000 Canadian Encyclopedia World Edition. In summary, these CD-ROM editions represent an invaluable treasure chest of Canadian information, bequeathed since 2000 to Historica, which continues to update them and make them available electronically to all Canadians.
