The Canadian Government's "style manual" also lists some other cases where the apostrophe can be used. btb.termiumplus.gc.ca/…

On a similar vein, I (and other Eastern Canadains / Ontarians) swear that we learned to spell dilemma as 'dilemna'. It wasn't until Michael Pollan's book came out that I realised the error of my ways.

@Kosmonaut If you can post an answer from OED I think that's more useful than depending on QuizMonster's answer from another site. That person doesn't cite any actual references.
