Statistics Canada, in collaboration with Public Services and Procurement Canada’s Publishing and Depository Services Directorate, is pleased to announce forthcoming changes that will improve access to its historical publications.
Beginning in November 2015, Statistics Canada and Dominion Bureau of Statistics official publications that were originally published exclusively in print format will be available as full-text PDFs through their associated catalogue records.
Over the next two years, links to approximately 120,000 documents will be added to the Government of Canada Publications catalogue and the Statistics Canada Library catalogue. After a link has been added, it will be listed in the Government of Canada Publications Weekly Acquisitions List.
Making this significant collection of historical materials available online will facilitate research on Canada and Canadians of the 19th and 20th centuries.
