Each category archive page has its own unique address.
If you wish to find out what that adress is,do the following:

  1. Go to Dashboard -> Posts -> Categories.
  2. Once you've reached this page, look for the desired category in the category list.
  3. Take note of the text found under the desired category's "Slug" column.

The link to the category archive page would then be "http://yourwebsite.ca/category/slug" where "yourwebsite.ca" is replaced with your site's URL (address) and "slug" is replaced with your category's "Slug" that you took note of earlier.


EXAMPLE:

If you have a website (with a "http://yourwebsite.ca" URL) where one of the categories is "Apple", and that category's slug is "apple", you can link to that category's archive page by going to "http://yourwebsite.ca/category/apple". This page will return a list of posts categorized as "Apple".
