At the 1995 Canadian Numismatic Association convention
in Calgary, Alberta a proposal was put forth at the meeting convened by the Canadian
Numismatic Research Society to compile a new Canadian numismatic bibliography
which would be the most complete reference of its type yet published. A team of
interested numismatists from across Canada and the United States was established
to take on this incredibly difficult and time-consuming task.
All of these individuals are strictly volunteers and this
project has been undertaken completely independently from any specific numismatic
organization since it was felt that the project could run more efficiently as
an independent entity with its own review committee.
