The end of Canada Gazette in print

Well, that is it. Statutory Instrument 2014-19 registered March 12, 2014 titled Canada Gazette Publication Order, 2014 has been published. Three short lines that spell the end of a very long era.
1. The Canada Gazette is to continue to be published electronically in Portable Document Format (PDF).
The Order comes into force on April 1, 2014.

A couple of points from the Explanatory Note attached to the order:


The Canada Gazette Publication Order, 2014 provides for the continuation of the publication in electronic Portable Document Format (PDF) of Part I, Part II and Part III of the Canada Gazette, pursuant to subsection 10(2) of the Statutory Instruments Act. It also clarifies that the Canada Gazette will continue to be published electronically in PDF.


The objective of this Order is to eliminate the requirement for a printed version of the Canada Gazette. This initiative was included in the Jobs, Growth and Long-term Prosperity Act, chapter 19 of the Statutes of Canada, 2012, to support the Government’s greening initiatives as part of its Sustainable Development Strategy.

The whole of the Gazette is online at a variety of places.

The Field Library has a near complete print collection for reference in the Edmonton office from 1978 to 2010. We print the indexes for quick reference.
