Full description

Often referred to as "the official newspaper of the Government of Canada," the Canada Gazette has been an important instrument in the Canadian democratic process for more than 160 years. It has served to inform Canadians of the operations of government and to involve them actively in the legislative process. With this site, Library and Archives Canada (LAC), co-operation with the Canada Gazette Directorate, Public Works and Government Services Canada, will make the Gazette available online, in its entirety.

The database comprises images taken from microfilm, microfiche and rare original copies of the Gazette held by Library and Archives Canada.

  • 1841-1869 (Province of Canada)
  • 1867-1946 (Dominion of Canada)
  • Part 1 (1947-1997)
  • Part 2 (1947-1997)
