Canadian Parliamentary Historical Resources
The Library of Parliament, in collaboration with the Canadian Research Knowledge Network, is pleased to provide access to Canadian Parliamentary Historical Resources, a free searchable database of digitized versions of parliamentary publications from the 1st Session of the 1st Parliament (1867) until coverage at ourcommons.ca and sencanada.ca begins. The publications that are made available are: debates, journals, committee documentation and bills of both the Senate and the House of Commons. It also contains the Senate Minutes of Proceedings, the Rules of the Senate, the House of Commons Votes and Proceedings, and the Standing Orders of the House of Commons. Historical sessional papers are also available from 1867 to 1901.
This database can be used to search all publications at once or to search more selectively using checkboxes to specify criteria.
