The Héritage project is a 10-year initiative to digitize and make accessible online some of Canada’s most popular archival collections encompassing roughly 60 million pages of primary-source documents. Chronicling the country and its people from the 1600s to the mid-1900s, this collection represents a vast and unique resource for Canadian historians, students, and genealogists.
More collections will appear on this portal as they are digitized. Come back often to see what’s new, or get a taste of what’s coming in our catalogue.
Detailed files, indexes, and other records chronicling the rich texture of settlement, land ownership, family history, and community life in early Canada.
Records from Canada's departments, crown corporations, and government agencies, created during times of intense industrial, political and social change and invaluable for research across a broad range of disciplines.
