Héritage for free Canadian Genealogy

Update: As of January 1, 2019, all Canadiana content included in Early Canadiana Online, Héritage, and Canadiana Online will be available at no charge to users. Heritage is a free database at Canadiana of some of Canada’s primary source documents. Héritage searches the archival material of Library and Archives Canada, “Chronicling the country and its people from the 1600s to the mid-1900s, this collection represents a vast and unique resource for Canadian historians, students, and genealogists.” Search the entire database or check out their featured collection of Genealogy records. Canadiana used to be partly by subscription with the money going to support their digitization efforts allowing full access to view all images and download PDFs and subscription rates were $10 (Canadian dollars) for one month's access or $100 (Canadian dollars) for one year's access.
