Globeandmail.com and ProQuest bring you over 150 years of history with Canada's Heritage from 1844—the online digitized full-image version of the complete works of The Globe and Mail newspaper since its inception as The Globe in 1844.

The Globe and Mail is Canada's largest circulation national newspaper, and is typically cited as being as Canada's Newspaper of Record. The Globe was founded in 1844 by Scottish immigrant George Brown, a liberal who later became a Father of the Confederation. In 1936 The Globe merged with The Mail and Empire and became The Globe and Mail. While the paper was largely known as a general conservative voice of the business establishment, it did have some liberal sway; an editorial in a 1967 issue coined the phrase "The State has no place in the bedrooms of the nation."

This Historical Newspaper title provides valuable insight into the political and social life of Canada during the 19th and 20th Centuries.

It’s the deepest and most extensive online historic newspaper archive in Canada and includes every news story, photograph, map, advertisement, classified ad, political cartoon, birth and death notice, and more. The breadth and depth of content make it a vital and convenient research tool for educators, librarians and all researchers.
Each page was rendered searchable through optical character recognition (OCR) software. Search mechanisms highlight search terms within the text of each newspaper page, making results easier to spot. Simple image modification and navigation tools allow users to prepare and present information in various formats.
