Newspapers




Newspapers are a good source of information whether for genealogical or historical purposes. The ones listed here can be seen at the National Library of Canada in Ottawa. Other copies may be found elsewhere, such as the main Ottawa Public Library.

The papers listed here can be old or recent. You can borrow them on microform (could be either a microfiche or a microfilm) from the National Library. However, it is best to check out your local resources first - libraries, Family History Centre, and genealogical and historical societies before asking your local library to borrow this material for you.

The National Library's policy on inter-library loans and other requirements are found here.
