About the Registry of Canadian Government Information Digitization Projects

The Registry of Canadian Government Information Digitization Projects is an index of digitized government documents held by Canadian libraries, archives and information centres. It functions as a centralized access point for digitized government documents and publications in Canada and a resource for the library and archives community to find partners for digitization projects.

The Registry aims to streamline the discovery process for researchers by collecting, in one place, an index of federal and provincial government documents which have been digitized in Canada. Municipal documents are also in scope for the Registry and will be added as they become available. It does not contain the documents themselves, but points out to collections at institutions across Canada. The Registry can be searched by anyone, from anywhere by full-text and browsed by project title, digitizing institution, corporate author (government agency/department) and jurisdiction.

Launched in September 2016, the Registry does not index all Canadian government documents. Born-digital documents are not included. Records will continue to be added by Canadian libraries and archives as materials are digitized. To add records, begin by requesting an account using the link below. 

This project would not have been possible without the technical support of the University of Toronto Libraries' Information Technology Services (ITS) department, and especially Marc Lalonde, Digital Library Coordinator with ITS.
