Looking for some info on our neighbors to the north? Canadian Newsstream is a ProQuest provided database that supplies full-text access to different Canadian newspapers. Users can filter by source type (including newspapers, trade journals, and wire feeds), document type (with everything from annual reports to advertisements), and find resources in both English and French. Publication dates reach back as far as the 1970s, providing users with over 50 years of quality Canadian news. Canadian Newsstream now boasts over 400 different news sources, with large-scale publications such as The Globe and Mail and Toronto Star. Smaller, independent news options are available as well. Some of the news sources are even exclusive through ProQuest.

This database is a perfect resource for any student researching Canadian news, who does not want to hit a paywall. This up-to-date database is refreshed daily, so timely information is always available for those looking. Many newspapers are even updated before 8 a.m. Eastern Time.

Canadian Newsstream can be accessed from the Databases list, after selecting the “C” section. This is located in the “Find” drop-down menu on the Bellevue University Library’s homepage. Be sure to check it out!
