Digitization of Early Canadian Government Documents Continues

This came via the listserv of the Canadian Library Association's Access to Government Information Interest Group:.

The non-profit organization Canadiana.org has just received another grant from the Department of Canadian Heritage's Canadian Culture Online program to help it complete its "Canada in the Making" digitization project.

According to the press release: "Canada in the Making, now in its sixth and final year, is a project focusing on the history of governance in Canada, with the goal of making 1.5 million pages of early official publications available by spring 2006. With this support from Canadian Heritage, Canadiana.org will be able to add a further 250,000 pages this year. These will include selected Acts, Debates and Sessional papers from the Colonial period to Confederation, and from 1867 to 1900."

The Canadiana.org website offers an overview of the early Canadiana digital collections that have been made available so far.
