As in the USA, The Beatles’ releases in Canada were marketed by Capitol. Unlike America, however, Capitol in Canada issued the group’s recordings from early 1963.

The first three Canadian albums were different from the US releases, although from the A Hard Day’s Night soundtrack onwards they were largely identical. In 1968 Capitol Canada released three early US LPs in stereo to replace these.

Aditionally, Let It Be was released as a box set with the paperback book, as in the United Kingdom, whereas US fans had to do with just the LP. Other variations exist, including five singles unique to Canada.
