bibliography of ottawa literary magazines and presses,

Given the recent appearance of bins of material in our household, thanks to John White donating a wealth of materials from his late mother's library (the Ottawa poet Jane Jordan), I've been prodded to, yet again, attempt to track a history of Ottawa literary magazines and presses. Cameron Anstee did a write-up of Ottawa poetry anthologies in 2014 also worth looking at, and Pearl Pirie put together a more recent list of Ottawa literary activity. Consider this a work-in-progress (updates/corrections/additions welcome):
