Research associated with the Museum's guiding theme, the "Transformation of Canada," results in the production and publication of material related to curatorial subject areas, collections, and operational issues.

The Museum publishes, or otherwise makes accessible to the public, material in the following categories:
- Research Studies
- Inside the Collection
- Museum Issues
- Material History Review
