This digitized full-images archives of the Ottawa Citizen provides genealogists, researchers and general public with online, easily-searchable first-hand accounts and unparalleled coverage of the politics, society and events of the time. 

This will allow Ottawans to digitally travel back through the centuries to become eyewitnesses to our local history.
