Instructions on adding a news feed to your News Reader or aggregator

Using your mouse right click on the XML orange graphic. In the Microsoft I.E. browser "copy shortcut" and in Netscape and Firefox browsers "Copy Link Location" from the pop-up menu that appears. Launch your news aggregator or news reader application and paste the news feed URL into an "add new feed" window. Detailed instructions on how to add news feeds are included in the news reader application that you choose. When news items are published by government departments and agencies through the Newsroom publishing and distribution system your news reader/aggregator will let you know through a small pop-up window or other alert device. If you close your news reader/aggregator, you will not be advised of updates until the next time you open it. Unlike e-mail subscriptions, you are not required to provide personal information or an e-mail address to benefit from receiving news from the Government of Canada Newsroom.
