Canadian Firearms Terminology, lesson 1:

Clip = An incorrect term used to describe a magazine

Magazine = see cartridge magazine

Cartridge magazine = A device or container from which ammunition may be fed into the firing chamber of a firearm. The Cartridge Magazine Control Regulations set out the limit for the number of cartridges permitted for different types of magazines. two common types are box-type magazine and tubular magazine.

Just for FYI...
