BC Historical Newspapers

BC Historical Newspapers Logo

Local newspapers reflect the social and cultural life of their communities and thus remain a vital source of information for community members and scholars alike. Enhancing access to this valuable information encourages the study of British Columbia history and brings research material to historians across the province and beyond.

The BC Historical Newspapers project features digitized versions of historical papers from around the province. The titles, which range from the Abbotsford Post to the Ymir Mirror, date from 1859 to 1995.

The Prince George, British Columbia public library has a selection of digitized newspapers that can be accessed here. In addition, patrons in British Columbia or Yukon may access The Province (1894-2010), The Times Colonist (1884-2010) or The Vancouver Sun (1912-2010) at no charge through this link.

Access to the microfilm used to create this collection generously provided by the Royal British Columbia Museum and British Columbia Provincial Archives.
