How To Order

The PubliCentrale web site provides access to publications produced and published by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada and its agencies.

On the web site, you will be able to easily locate and access publications available in various formats. Not all formats are available for every publication.

Publications can be ordered by mail, phone, fax or Internet.

Orders can be placed over the telephone by calling Publication Services at:
