Canadian Government Publications Portal

Internet Archive Canada, with advice and assistance from government and university librarians across Canada, have digitized more than 20,000 Canadian Government publications and made them freely available online. This page is meant to serve as a portal for discovering publications digitized by Internet Archive Canada, to be a reference for future digitization initiatives and provide incentive to grow the list of titles that have been preserved and dedicated to the public domain.

Beginning in 2004, Internet Archive Canada began to digitize material from the Library and Archives of Canada. This work has continued steadily over the last decade as part of projects sponsored by: Ontario Digitization Initiative, Legislative Assembly of Ontario, Ontario Council of University Libraries, University of Ottawa, University of Alberta, and University of Toronto
