Theses Canada

Important notice

We have recently resumed harvesting from university repositories, and we will gradually add new records for theses and dissertations published between 2016 and 2020 over the coming months.

Theses Canada, launched in 1965 at the request of the deans of Canadian graduate schools, is a collaborative program between Library and Archives Canada (LAC) and Canadian universities. It strives to:

  • acquire and preserve theses and dissertations from participating universities
  • provide free access to Canadian digital theses and dissertations in the collection
  • facilitate access to non-digital theses and dissertations in the collection
