The Canadian English dictionary is already included in the English Dictionaries that comes pre-installed with the English version of AOO. Installing the Canadian version would be redundant at best and may cause other problems. It is not explained how to activate the other regional dictionaries, but maybe the keyword is regional. You may have to change your regional settings in OpenOffice so that it uses the Canadian dictionaries.

Hope this helps.

Where do I find the regional setting?!

Where do I find the regional setting so I can go in there and make sure it is on the Canadian dictionary because I am getting red lines under all my words.. Thank u

By reading out this post I've just come to know about Canadian English Spell Checking, Hyphenation and Thesaurus. I hope this input will be effective for many one. Thanks David

I felt I had to register just to say I'm using it with version 3.4.1, and it seems to be working perfectly fine. I tried all functions mentioned in the first comment and had no problem. It may be because I have OpenOffice in French though.

I am having the same problem as DaveD below. Is this going to be corrected any time soon?

This extension does not seem to work in AOO 3.4.0. Thesaurus is greyed out, spell and grammar checks are disabled and hyphenation produces an error.

Occasionally, en_CA can be activated on the blank page opened during re-activation, but ceases to work when this page is closed or a Writer document is opened.

Looking forward to a fix or update to this Canadian English (en_CA) spell checking, hyphenation and thesaurus.

Thanks.
