Local Newspapers at Winnipeg Public Library

Current copies of the Winnipeg Free Press and Winnipeg Sun are available at all Winnipeg Public Library branches.  The database Canadian Major Dailies provides access to current Winnipeg
Free Press articles (in-library use only). Library branches may also have current editions of Winnipeg community papers (for example, The Lance).

We provide access to the complete Winnipeg Free Press archive and past editions of many Manitoba newspapers through a subscription to Newspaper Archive®. If you want to use this resource outside of a Library branch you will need a valid Winnipeg Public Library card.


In addition, the Millennium Library has past editions of Winnipeg newspapers in both print and microfilm. Content on microfilm can be scanned and saved to your own USB drive. 

The Local History Room at the Millennium Library has kept approximately 300 files of newspaper clippings about a range of Winnipeg and Manitoba topics.  These are for in-library use only and can be copied, photographed or scanned.

Other sources
Newspaper archives may also be found in the digital collections of other organizations; for example, the University of Manitoba Archives and Special Collections have made all editions of the Winnipeg Tribune available - see link below.  Contact us for help finding other resources.
