Thanks Tara!
Yes, we are now 100% Evergreen ILS, having migrated from both Unicorn and more recently Millennium in the context of our department's library amalgamation (we used to be a consortium of 3 library networks serving different sectors, but now operate as single business unit).
Our contributions to the French language edition (working with Dan Scott) should pick up later on for the new content strings (e.g. Acquistions module, etc.) as the migration itself was a bit of a handful especially going from Millennium. But it feels good not to be working all those late hours!
Next on deck: our Drupal launch this Spring, so I'd be interested in hearing from anybody working on Drupal + Evergreen integration.
More updates from NRCan in one of the upcoming EG newsletters.
Thanks to all for making this community rumble!!

I didn't see an announcement on this list, but stumbled across this on the page of Evergreen libraries (http://open-ils.org/dokuwiki/doku.php?id=evergreen_libraries)

Natural Resources Canada Library migrated their locations across Canada in two phases. Nine of their 13 libraries migrated to Evergreen as of June 8, 2009, and the rest went live on January 15th, 2010.

Awesome! Congratulations! I can only partially imagine how much work it would've been to migrate from two different systems, in two official languages, across 5? (5.5?) time zones, for a government department that was also overhauling their cataloging processes.
