Do you also have?

Tide and Current Tables vol 5
Canadian Aids to Navigation
Chart 1 - Abbreviations and Symbols
Canadian Colregs -,_c._1416.pdf
All the necessary charts
The List of Lights, Buoys and Fog Signals is needed if you are out at night.
Sailing Directions - more comprehensive than cruising guides
Some cruising guides are nice - Dreamspeaker (expensive, but pretty), Waggoneer and North West Boat Travel (have advertising, but less expensive)
