libre office thesaurus for english canada


I have a problem with Libre Office where the thesaurus is continuously greyed out.
I installed a thesaurus for English USA and that works fine...but I would prefer a thesaurus for English Canada.

I used "sudo apt-get install"

Any ideas if there is an extension for Canadian English?

I found the solution.
The libre office website has some extensions for british english and canadian english thesaurus. I
simply downloaded that...then in libre office go to

extension managager

Then just select the extension. It has a .oxt extension.
Then simply restart libre office, and you're all set to go
