Greeting all . . .

Please excuse any cross-listing that occurs from this message as 
I have sent it out to several different nets.

The situation is this:
I have the need to translate latitude/longitude coordinants into 
easting/northing coordinants.  I have a program that completes 
the job nicely for the United States (COORDS83 ver. 1.0, Gerald 
Willis Mahun, 8616 Fairway Pl., Middleton, WI  53562), but I find 
a need for translation of Canadian coordinants (specifically Manitoba 
at the moment, but that may change by tomorrow - or perhaps it has 
already changed, I'm just unaware of it - the stuff flowing down-
hill theory you know)!

Is there, or rather, where is there a program that can do lat/long 
into easting/northing translations for Canadian locations?  I am 
extremely open to suggestions.  Please post replies directly to me, 
and I will summarize the replies I receive to the net in about a 
week or so.  We have availability to many different computers, so 
advice for programs designed for different systems will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
