Hey Tran (others?)... I used to use the ITE manual for figuring simple trip generation in the States. Is there an equivalent up here?

Yes, the ITE manual :) It's widely used in Canada - in fact some of the survey data used in the manual is from Canadian sources. It's okay for use in auto-oriented areas, but I would stay away from straight application of ITE rates in areas where you have more than marginal non-auto trip making.

Awesome... at least something I learned to use in the States is transferable! ;)

Of course, you may have to do some adjustments - translate those ADT's into metric, or factor in how many of those trips are going to be by dogsled, for instance. :D
