Pricing is now available for Canadian Newsstream renewal. As was announced in 2016, three-year pricing has been negotiated. We are in year 3 of that 3 year pricing. In summary:

  • Institutions that continue to subscribe to Canadian Newsstream Complete (and have done so since 2015 or earlier) will see a 0% increase over last year's price.
  • Institutions that chose to "ramp up" to get access to Canadian Newsstream Complete will be charged the amount to agreed upon in 2016, which is detailed below.
  • Institutions that chose to remain on Canadian Major Dailies will see a 0% increase over last year's price.

By way of background ... in 2016, Proquest began a rationalization process that affected a number of products that BC ELN offered, including Canadian Newsstream. Before that time, most BC ELN customers subscribed to Major Dailies or Canadian Newsstream Complete, but there were a number that subscribed to the Pacific Collection, which was eliminated as a standalone product during the rationalization process. Since the Pacific Collection content is available in Canadian Newsstream Complete, BC ELN  negotiated significant reductions to the 2015 Newsstream pricing model, stable 0% increases for 3 years for existing subscribers of Major Dailies and Newsstream Complete, as well as 3-year transitional pricing for Pacific Collection subscribers in order to provide Partner Libraries an option for retaining Pacific Collection content at the best price via Newsstream Complete.



Canadian Newsstream (formerly Canadian Newsstand) offers unparalleled access to the full text of more than 300 newspapers from Canada's leading publishers, including The Globe and Mail.

This full text database includes the complete available electronic backfile for most newspapers, providing full access to the articles, columns, editorials, and features. Some backfiles date as far back as the late 1970s and 1980s. Canadian Newsstream content is updated daily so researchers always have timely access to new information.

Offering Canadian Newsstream through the ProQuest web interface provides subscribers with a single point of access to integrated Canadian, U.S., and international content and takes advantage of the extensive features and functions of the interface.

Now you're able to create an online newspaper resource from one of the world's largest newspaper collections to best meet the needs of your library's patrons. In addition, researchers can cross-search Canadian Newsstream with the Canadian Business & Current Affairs™ (CBCA) database, a very powerful combination for the retrieval of Canadian information.

ELN Sites may choose to subscribe to one or more of the following collections within the Canadian Newsstand database:

  • Major Dailies: includes major daily papers from across Canada
  • Canadian Newsstream: Complete: includes all titles from the Mjor Dailies collection as well as the now defunct Pacific Collection
