Summary/Abstract: The article presents four anthologies of poetry published in the 20th and 21st century in Canada (their contents and reception being discussed), in which poems by the Poles living there have been included. The analysis of the anthologies proves a rather modest presence of the Polish poetry in the field of Anglophone Canadian literature. The collections presented are, however, proof of the willingness to accentuate the presence of the Polish poetry in the Polish circles abroad as well as in the country. The author also announces her own project of an anthology of Polish poetry in Canada, being currently a work in progress, entitled “Objąć cię słowem”.
