Guide to Canadian Labour History Resources

Canadian Labour Web Sites

Internet sites have been selected from searches on MultiSearch Canada and Altavista Canada as well as other search engines.

The name of the site appears as it is found on the home page for that site. If a site offers only English access, it is included in both the English and the French versions of Canadian Labour Web Sites with its title in English (i.e. site names are not translated). If a site offers bilingual access, the English version of Canadian Labour Web Sites points to the English site and its title is given in English. The French version of Canadian Labour Web Sites points to the French site and its title is given in French. Some sites offer only English access, even though they have both an English and French title. In cases such as this, the French version will point to a French title, but the site may offer only English access.

Canadian Labour Web Sites includes pointers to many different information sources. The National Library of Canada makes every effort to ensure the links are accurate and current. All links to emote sites are checked on a regular basis. Some of these sites may be temporarily overloaded or unavailable for short periods. Sites may also move or disappear completely. The National Library of Canada has no control over the availability of remote sites, and is not responsible for the information found at those sites. The inclusion of a site in Canadian Labour Web Sites does not constitute an endorsement or recommendation by the National Library of Canada.
