Abstract. The North American subfamilies and eastern North American genera of Calliphoridae, as well as the 21 species of blow flies (other than species of the parasitic genus Protocalliphora) now known from, or likely to occur in, eastern Canada, are keyed. Calliphora loewi and Lucilia coeruleiviridis are formally recorded from Canada or eastern Canada for the first time. Distribution maps, derived from the University of Guelph Insect Collection database, are provided for each species.
