Parents' Information Bureau fonds

The Parents' Information Bureau (PIB) was a clinic for family planning and birth control set up by A.R. Kaufman of the Kaufman Rubber Company in the 1930s. The main branch of the PIB was located at 410 King Street West in Kitchener, Ontario. Between the mid-1930s and the mid-1970s the PIB published a series of numbered reports, forms and informational pamphlets regarding birth control and sterilization. The publication numbers were reused by the PIB for revised editions and for documents containing information about related topics that were likely circulated as part of an information packet.

The views expressed by the PIB reflect the era in which they were produced and in no way reflect the current opinions, goals or ethics of the Library or the University of Waterloo. More information about PIB related holdings can be found in the Parents' Information Bureau finding aids.
