Resources for staying at home

​​​​​​​​​​​​​The Library and Archives Canada (LAC) collection provides a wealth of insight into how our society has pulled together and coped with collective crises in the past. Now, as we face the COVID-19 pandemic, our challenge is to work together by staying apart.

These resources will help people of all ages to explore Canada's heritage while staying at home.

These resources offer a variety of ways to actively learn, stay curious and contribute to our collective memory during an otherwise isolating time. We encourage everyone to discover new things and offer their own contributions!

If you work in a public-sector organization that has online resources, contact us and we will include them in the list below.


These are just a sample of the vast amount of resources available from public libraries across Canada.  Many libraries offer the ability to apply and receive a library card on line. We encourage you to get in touch with your local library.
