Newspapers

Newspapers are a good source of information whether for genealogical or historical purposes. The ones listed here can be seen at Library & Archives 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 Library & Archives Canada. 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.

Library & Archives Canada's policy on inter-library loans and other requirements are found here.



Newspapers in bold italics are on microfilm in the self-service area of Library & Archives Canada's Reading Room.
