Canadian Electronic Library is available on the desLibris platform by subscription.
The “Complete Collection” includes all public documents and those books made available by their publishers for subscription licensing. New titles are added daily to the collection, which in mid 2019 numbers over 80,000 titles. More information on the Complete Collection here.
Institutional/library pricing is based on account type, population served (with discounts based on location and language.)

Complete Collection: Canadian Books and Public Policy Documents
Note: The Documents-only subscription option has been discontinued in 2019.
The only subscription configuration now offered is the Complete Books and Documents service, which includes all Public Documents and all Books licensed for subscription by their publishers.
To offset the effect of price increases for former Documents-only subscribers, a single concurrent user license option is also available. This option applies the single-user limit to the Books collection only; Documents remain covered by unlimited multiple user license.
Academic Subscriber Bonus Plan
The credit, which has no expiry date, may be applied to the purchase of perpetual access licenses from the desLibris catalogue or to future subscription renewals.
