The Canadian Poetry Press was founded in 1986 for the purposes of publishing scholarly editions of early Canadian long poems.

Since then the Press has expanded and has developed this electronic archive to accompany the bi-annual publication. Slowly, but surely, more material will be added to the database.

This enormous archive of Canadian Poetry is a continuing work in progress, both in collection and construction.


The library includes the following categories:

Early Writing In Canada 

The Confederation Poets

Post-Confederation Poets 

Edwardian & Georgian Poets 

Modernist Poets

Poems in Canadian Newspapers

Canadian Closet Dramas

Essays & Discussion Papers

Works with No Date
