There's been a lot of talk recently about what sorts of cryptographic software can or cannot be exported from the United States. The concern, it seems, is that widespread availability of strong encryption is thought to pose a significant national security risk to the United States.
The question of what restrictions, if any, apply to exports of cryptographic software from Canada is confusing because of jurisdictional uncertainties involving US Export Restrictions and Canada-US Trade Agreements.
Marc Plumb has been looking into this issue for several months and he's written a summary of what he's learned so far. If you have an questions, comments, or additional information, please send e-mail and we'll update the report. (last updated: May 30, 1996).
There are remarkably few sites in Canada that make PGP available.
Another good place to look for interesting discussions is the Cypherpunks Archive.
