Although the three Canadian territories of Northwest Territories, Nunavut, and Yukon make up almost 40% of the landmass, they total less than one-half of one percent of the country’s population. There are of course newspapers available, and online historical newspapers are sparse. But there are a few.
Below is a list of where the titles are stored and the link so that you can access them.
So go for it – find your “Territorial” ancestors and all the interesting articles that capture the stories of their lives.
Please note that I have not always entered the dates that are included in the collections, as I suspect they will change as more items are digitized. Also I suspect that some of these links may change over time – so if there is a dead link – please use your favorite search engine to find their new location.
