Also featured prominently are images of Indigenous peoples, immigrant communities, notable international figures on official visits to Canada, as well as portraits of such iconic figures as Margaret Atwood, Glenn Gould, Marshall McLuhan, Mary Pickford and Pierre Elliott Trudeau.The publication draws from an archive of nearly 25,000 photographs of Canadian subject matter.
