The www.gnu.ca website is currently a series of HTML files handwritten and maintained by Amin Bandali using GNU Emacs.
GNU Canada's logo is based on the beautiful GNU silhouette logos by JC, under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International License.
More specifically, the GNU Canada logo was created by adding a fill colour of d51b1e to the Black GNU profile variant of the GNU silhouette logos.
The favicon was created by first using Inkscape to export the GNU Canada logo SVG to 16x16 and 32x32 PNG images, then using ImageMagick to make an ICO from the PNGs:

The machine serving www.gnu.ca and
was originally set up on 13 April 2023 with the hostname
wildebeest.gnu.ca, for obvious reasons and after
On 20 August 2023, the machine's hostname was changed to
grassland.gnu.ca, giving it a more original name.
It is also quite fitting since GNUs (wildebeests) and Gophers
both live in grasslands. :-)
The machine continues to be accessible via its previous name
wildebeest.gnu.ca as well.
