Good luck is right! We have a superb reference library here in Toronto,
Ontario but my feeling is that in this hotbed of English nationalism, such
a publication might be hard to find. I would suggest going to the heart of
French Canada, the Universite de Laval in Quebec City
( That's where you'll find the scions of language
purism. Or, it might be possible to locate an up-to-date technical
dictionary of Quebec French published in Montreal, Quebec City, or Ottawa.
Another possibility is to contact a university with a good French language
program and talk to one of the professors who should be able to suggest a
good resource.
