This online database provides access to about 26 000 pages of official administrative directives concerning the Canadian Post Office. Published between 1759 and 1900, these directives come primarily from three types of publications: the Canadian Official Postal Guide (1863 to 1900), administrative circulars (1812 to 1900) and a few federal government publications. These publications, digitized in both official languages when they are available, provide access to over 675 documents. An exhaustive list of publications, by type or chronological order, is accessible from the Choose a document search screen.

The database allows users to not only consult the original documents online (choose a document) but also to search full-text digital publications (search by word, phrase and date). This makes it possible to locate a post office, find the postage rate for a specific period, obtain instructions for mailing dangerous goods, etc.
