Make-It.ca - The Maker's Resource

Maker Resources: Electronics, IoT, Arduino, LEDs, and More...

Rebuilding and Updating Of The Site

Updates are happening! Welcome to our new site, Make-It.ca. We are dedicated to the Maker Spirit and all which it represents. 

Make-It.ca is a resource for the maker movement with an emphasis on the electronics tinkering. Maybe you are involved with electronics, Arduino hardware or software design, robotics, 3-D printing or Amateur (Ham) Radio – we have resources for it all.

Our sister site, PCBoard.ca is a valuable resource where we offer unique electronic devices and components. Need an LED, maybe a resistor or capacitor or a battery pack? PCBoard.ca is the place to look for all that and more.

During the construction phase, content from our info.pcboard.ca will be migrated over. This will bring you a one-stop solution for all your reference needs.

See a problem, a typo or maybe a page not found? Reach out to us on our Contact Us page to make us aware – we appreciate your feedback!
