This magazine began in 1893 and continued for over 40 years - an impressive feat of longevity in a small market such as Canada's. The Canadian Magazine covered a diverse range of topics and often including original contributions from some of Canada's best creative minds, (i.e. poets Bliss Carman and E. Pauline Johnson; authors L.M. Montgomery and Nelly McClung; Group of Seven artist Arthur Lismer, A.Y. Jackson and J.E.H. MacDonald, and cartoonist J.W. Bengough). The magazine aimed to be Canada's equivalent to "quality" American literary magazines such as The Atlantic and Scribner's.
Volume 20, no. 3 begins an 11 part series on the War of 1812, by James Hannay. This was later turned into a book, History of the war of 1812 between Great Britain and the United States of America, CIHM no. 73011.
Volume 26, no. 6 (Apr. 1906) includes an article "Reminiscences of a Loyalist" (Colonel Stephen Jarvis) that gives his story of the War of 1812.
