The/La Source Newspaper Collection features digitized issues of The/La Source, a bilingual community newspaper published in Vancouver, British Columbia. The paper is published biweekly and aims to serve as a forum for intercultural dialogue between the Lower Mainland's various cultural communities. Stories report on special events taking place in different communities or explore broader issues from the perspective of a particular community, with the goal of building awareness and relationships between diverse cultural groups.
The collection serves as a valuable resource for researchers interested in the cultural history of Vancouver, the experience of immigrant and minority communities, and, as the only regularly published French language newspaper in the city, the history of Vancouver's Francophone community.
The collection contains 4 year-end issues from the period 2007-2011, selected for digitization because they provide a review of major stories of the previous year. To see recent issues and find out more about The/La Source Newspaper, visit http://thelasource.com/.
