The Canadian Illustrated News was a weekly illustrated magazine published in Montreal from 1869 to 1883. The publisher was George Desbarats. The magazine was notable for being the first in the world to consistently produce photographs at a successful rate. This was possible with the financial backing of George Desbarats, as well as the invention of half-tone photo-engraving by William Leggo. More than 15,000 illustrations were published during the magazine's 14 years of existence. The magazine had a French language counterpart also published by Desbarats called L'Opinion publique, that many times published the English magazine's illustrations and many of its articles translated into French.
