About the Collection
McGill University ’s Howard Ross Library of Management has what many regard as one of the oldest and most complete print collections of Canadian corporate annual reports. The collection, which traces many companies back to the 19th Century, consists of annual reports of approximately 2,000 Canadian corporations in all business sectors.This site is a prototype for a virtual archive of McGill’s holdings of corporate reports. As such, it serves to preserve the collection in perpetuity, and provides a unique web-based archive of primary materials related to Canadian history. Available on this site are: digital images of historical corporate reports from McGill’s collection, holdings information for the collection, predecessor and successor information, and links to company websites. At this time, only a selection of reports from various companies is available: McGill hopes to be able to provide digital access to the entire collection in the future.
