The Canada Gazette has been published as the official publication of the Government of Canada since 1841 and all issues since the beginning are available to Canadians. Please note that the Portable Document Format (PDF) version of the Canada Gazette, Part Ⅰ, Part Ⅱ and Part Ⅲ published on line has been official only since April 1, 2003.
The majority of issues of the Canada Gazette published prior to 1998 have been digitized and are available for consultation on the ARCHIVED — Library and Archives Canada (LAC) — A Nation’s Chronicle: The Canada Gazette Web page. Printed copies of these issues are also available for on-site consultation at LAC and may be available for consultation in some public libraries.
Since January 1, 2013, the Canada Gazette Directorate (CGD) keeps the last five years of the HyperText Mark-up Language (HTML) and PDF versions of the Canada Gazette on its Web site. The PDF versions published online prior to those years will be housed on the Government of Canada Publications Web site, and will still be accessible and searchable using the search tool on the Canada Gazette Web site.
