Athabasca University (AU) is pleased to introduce a new and unique website: Connecting Canadians: Canada’s Multicultural Newspapers (http://www.connectingcanadians.org). Connecting Canadians provides individuals a unique opportunity to explore early newspapers online, in their original language and connect with their heritage.

Connecting Canadians is a collection of historical newspapers that document the early years of immigrant experience in Canada. At the moment it includes Croatian, Estonian, Finnish, Hungarian, Polish, Serbian, Ukrainian, Yugoslavian, Latvian, and Lithuanian newspapers. Connecting Canadians is an invaluable resource for descendants of immigrants, students and teachers of the immigrant experience, as well as genealogists. All content is freely accessible, and keyword searchable.
