Welcome to this national overview of  Canada's stained and other architectural glass, from its beginnings in the 1840s  to twenty-first century work in both sacred and secular buildings.

The Glass Archive is - and will continue to be - a work in progress.  Begun in 2007, there are currently some 5000  photos, primarily from  the Western provinces of British Columbia, Saskatchewan  and Manitoba.  Photography in other Canadian  provinces is ongoing. We plan tol add new material from Montreal, Fredericton, Ontario, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia and Alberta in 2013-14.  

Email us at  glasscanada@gmail.com  We welcome your questions and comments. 

Most images from Saskatchewan and Manitoba have now been annotated; funding for the identification and annotation of 1500 British Columbia photos is still required.  As a not-for-profit  educational society  we need your help and support.
