The Canadian Research Knowledge Network (CRKN) is a partnership of Canadian
universities, dedicated to expanding digital content for the academic
research enterprise in Canada. The 60 million pages of Canadiana
collections of archival material, government publications, periodicals,
monographs, annuals, and newspapers will be free to access as of January 1,
2019. The removal of the paywall effective January 1, 2019 is international.

Making the Canadiana collections available at no cost to users is a result
of the recent merger between Canadiana.org, a not-for-profit charity, and
the Canadian Research Knowledge Network (CRKN), a not-for-profit partnership
of 75 Canadian universities, finalized in April 2018. The Canadiana
collections include three flagship collections: Early Canadiana Online,
Heritage, and Canadiana Online.
