Yes you'll need to make an extension. You can probably still bits of
that Canadian one. The page needs a URL (route) that points to a new
controller which calls a template. Create your template in Jinja and
ensure its file folder is added to the template folders.

It should be pretty future proof for the foreseeable AFAIC. If you'd
written this 2 years ago it would still work now on the latest CKAN.

One approach I found based on data.gc.ca is to create an extension, but it wasn't clear to me how to access a view or controller that wouldn't be susceptible to breakage after a CKAN release. Any suggestions or links to documentation are appreciated.
