Our definition of a newspaper is as follows: "a newspaper is printed and distributed daily, semi-weekly, weekly or at some other regular and short interval. it consists of news, editorials, features, advertising and other matters of current interest." We have excluded those papers solely devoted to a specific subject, industry or interest, e.g. financial, industrial and military papers...Also excluded are magazines, house organs, reviews, alumni publications and supplements. (Union List of Canadian Newspapers held by Canadian Libraries. Ottawa: National Library of Canada, 1977).

Our online catalogue AMICUS will take you to the exact holdings for that newspaper under a particular title and will give you links in the record as to other related titles and editions. This catalogue is the most up-to-date resource for holdings for the Library and Archives Canada and other libraries reporting to it. Please check it for updates as well as Aboriginal Peoples
