Searching for Canadian Government Documents

There is no real "one stop shopping" for Government documents. If a department has its own website it is always worthwhile checking that website for publications. Some departments have their own searchable catalogues while other departments may just have a list of current publications but in either case you can sometimes find publications that are not available via other sources. Other methods of searching for Canadian Government Documents include: 

Search Federal and Provincial Government Websites via Google
