The Canadian Illustrated News was a weekly Canadian illustrated magazine published in Montreal from 1869 to 1883. It was published by George Desbarats.

The magazine was notable for being the first in the world to consistently produce photographs at a successful rate.[1] This was possible with the financial backing of George Desbarats, as well as the invention of half-tone photoengraving by William Leggo.

A print by Henri Julien of the `Royal Military College of Canada Uniform of Cadets`, which appeared in the `Canadian Illustrated News` is in the Canadian War Museum in Ottawa, Ontario. Accession Number: 19850291-004.[2]

A print by Arthur William Moore (1863–1909), a landscape artist, of the Royal Military College of Canada `Kingston, Ont. The Canadian Military College, From the Walls of Fort Henry` c. 17 June 1876 which appeared in the `Canadian Illustrated News` is in Library and Archives Canada.[3]
