About the Collection
The McGill Library 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 from approximately 2,000 Canadian corporations in all business sectors.
This site provides a web-based archive of primary materials related to Canadian history. Available on this site are: digitized versions of a selection of the 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.
Note: The company information on this site has not been updated since 2005, so information on the companies' history since that time is likely out of date.
Accessing the reports
To access the corporate annual reports for a company, browse or search for that company. The company detail page will list all the years for which we have reports in our holdings. If the digitized report for a given year is available you'll be able to click on the year to download the report as a PDF file.
If you are looking for corporate reports for Canadian companies from 1997 onwards, please consult SEDAR.
