Full Federal Hansard Now Online

Some exciting news today for fellow Hansard geeks:

The full digitized historical federal Hansard, Senate and House of Commons, is now available online, browsable and searchable. Canadiana.org’s Historical Debates of the Parliament of Canada portal was launched today: http://parl.canadiana.ca/

The project has been in development for some time. It complements the content that has been available on parl.gc.ca (House: 1994 onward; Senate: 1996 onward), to create a full collection of digital federal Hansard.

Full details about the portal and the search functions are here: http://parl.canadiana.ca/support/about.
