GOVINFO: Canadian Federal Government Information

General guide for locating Canadian federal government information

Introduction to Finding Tools

One of the difficulties in locating Canadian federal government documents is determining whether or not they exist.  There are very few research tools available for this task.

Bibliographies, Publication Catalogues, etc.provide listings of documents that have been created and published by the Government of Canada. 

These are useful, especially for locating older, historical documents.
