Until now, academic literature has not considered Polish-Canadian relations in the context of the history of science. This paper presents a preliminary research into the matter. The study was conducted on the basis of Roczniki (Annals) of the Polish Academy of Arts and Sciences, one of the most important Polish scientific institutions. The analysis of the source material showed that the first contacts were established in the 1880s. In the following years, the Academy further developed the exchange of scientific publications with Canadian universities, museums and scientific societies.
