ProQuest offers a variety of government documents and publications in microform format. Many holdings date from as early as 1867 or earlier – microfilm copies of the original print editions. These documents are a key to government activity in Canada.

Where required by the size of the original, 16mm or 35mm microfilm is used. More often, titles are available on microfiche. In some cases, there is a choice of microfilm or microfiche. The citations in the catalogue indicate "mf" for microfiche, "16" or "35" for microfilm.
