Strömgren and H[FORMULA] photometry of OB-stars generally brighter than 9.5 mag in the Canis Major - Puppis - Vela region of Milky Way is reported. The observations are based on the Milky Way luminous-star (LS) identifications and are designed to create a complete, magnitude-limited sample of LS for this field. We present new uvby photometry for 127 LS and H[FORMULA] photometry for 25 of them. These observations are part of an ongoing effort to improve the completeness of the existing [FORMULA] data-base for the bright OB-type stars in the Milky Way, with the aim to investigate the structure of selected star-forming regions.

Key words: stars: early-type
