This database on Canadian philately provides access to the 3 volume publication Canadian Philately: Bibliography and Index by Cimon Morin.

The database represents more than 10,000 bibliographical references published between 1864 and 1993 and compiles the titles of publications on stamps, postal stationery, postal history and postal markings in Canada and British North America. This bibliography covers published monographs, brochures, specialized catalogues and auction catalogues, as well as articles that have appeared in periodicals, exhibition catalogues and more general works. It provides bibliographic references for English and French language publications.

The vast majority of these publications are available within the ARCHIVED - Philatelic Library. It is also possible to consult the ARCHIVED - Periodical collection for further details about the holdings. Texts of the articles are not available on this site, but can be obtained through interlibrary loan at your local library.
