It isn't distributed with PROJ.4 nor does it live in the repository.
I think there is some license restriction about redistribution or
perhaps it was just to big for me to host in CVS, I can't recall.
You need to contact someone in the Canadian government to get it.
This might be covered in the FAQ or perhaps the mailing list archive.

The error report, operating system, and PROJ version it occured with
should be sufficient.  Since I can already reproduce it I don't need
a huge amount of supporting info.
