  Posted on: May 3, 2022

Libraries across British Columbia (including TRU Library) have joined together to provide every B.C. and Yukon resident with online access to 126 years of B.C.’s longest published newspapers: the Vancouver Sun (1912-2010), the Times-Colonist (1884-2010) and The Province (1894-2010).

Anyone with a computer or mobile device located in BC or the Yukon can now access three historical newspaper archives from anywhere – including their homes – to search more than a century of news, features, editorials, ads and images that showcase B.C.’s heritage.
