As a communication medium, printing has played a major role in the transformation of Canada. It has served as a tool of government and a forum for political debate. Businesses use it for product marketing, administration and exchange of information. It has also been a direct and indirect means by which Canadians have contested and defined the nature of their society. As a manufacturing process, printing has evolved as a diverse industry subject to constant technological change. This report is a survey of the evolution of the printing industry in Canada and the major innovations that have improved productivity, unit cost, speed and volume, flexibility and product quality.
