PubMed Central Canada (PMCC) was unavailable from July 2014 to June 2015. As of June 2015, PubMed Central Canada has been put back online.

PMCC is a web-accessible Canadian archive or repository of biomedical and life sciences research that provided access to free full-text peer-reviewed articles. As a major source of biomedical research published in both of Canada's official languages, English and French, PMCC provides access to a permanent archive of journal research, and builds on and complements US PubMedCentral, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) digital archive of biomedical sciences literature. The goal of PMCC is to build a research repository by Canadians about Canadian biomedical research. Its philosophy is to provide a platform and searchable index for all Canadians. Although not widely-known, it presented real opportunities for medical librarians to influence the direction of archiving biomedical research in Canada.

PMC International

On the PMC Int'l website it reads:

"...PMC Canada became operational in October 2009, under an arrangement with NLM and NCBI similar to that for Europe PMC. PMC Canada represents a partnership between the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), the National Research Council's Canada Institute for Scientific and Technical Information (NRC-CISTI), and the NLM. Like Europe PMC, PMC Canada receives all of its final published content through the U.S. PMC. It also takes in CIHR-funded author manuscripts directly and makes them available to the U.S. and UK sites."
