The Barren Lands Collection

Copyright & Context

R. N. W. Mounted PoliceContext

The University of Toronto Libraries aim to foster access to knowledge, and to preserve and develop specialized collections. Through our Digital Library we are now making our unique resources available and useful to those beyond our own community. On this site we are offering broad public access to a collection of historical materials which form part of the record of our past. These primary historical documents reflect the attitudes, perspectives, and beliefs of their time, and therefore may contain offensive language or negative stereotypes.

For these purposes the images and transcribed texts may be viewed and printed without prior permission, on the condition that you provide proper attribution of the source in all copies.
