Guide to Canadian Political Science Resources:


Photo courtesy of the National Archives of Canada (C24356)

Federal Institutions and their Structure

Prepared by Norma Gauld, Reference and Information Services

These sources have been selected to assist researchers in locating current information about Canadian government institutions, their structure, the political system and the policy making process. The guide includes non-government sources in both print and electronic format (accessible via the Internet) but does not include provincial and local material. Users are also encouraged to refer to "Information Management" for sources published by the Government of Canada.

All the print materials listed are available from the National Library of Canada, which has unique collections of interest to political science researchers. For example political speeches, including a collection of federal Cabinet Ministers speeches on microfiche, which includes speeches of Leaders of the Opposition and covers the period from 1970 to the last five years and some earlier material dating back to the 1940's. The library also has a strong collection of Canadian political biographies and newsletters and periodicals of Canadian political parties.
