Loyalist Gazette Paper and Digital Versions

The Gazette was traditionally printed and mailed to members and subscribers. In recent years, a digital version has been offered as an alternative to the paper copy.

When a new issue is printed, a digital version is made available to members and subscribers at roughly the same time. Each digital issue becomes publicly available after one year.

The latest issues are available to members and paid subscribers. If you meet either of those requirements and would like to see that digital version, please complete the request form.

PLEASE NOTE: The official online archive of the Gazette is now at, and this ‘legacy’ archive page will eventually be redirected to the new one.

Reading the Digital copy of the Gazette

At this point the digital version is a pdf of the hardcopy issue which is black and white with colour front and back covers. The digital version however has colour throughout, which does make for a much more interesting reading experience.

There are some software tools (often free) that can enhance the reading experience further. One reader noted: “I downloaded the free Soda PDF 3D reader. I currently have Windows 8 on my laptop [it runs on a number of platforms]. With this app the pdf of the Gazette opens like a print magazine with page flip using the touch screen or by clicking to turn pages. It also has the pdf search options and menu options for rotating, bookmarks, annotation, go to page, etc. This side-by-side page turning is what I was looking for when we were first exploring the possibility of an electronic version of the magazine. This PDF 3D reader may be an option for others looking for another way to view the Gazette file. I think it is fantastic.” (This is not an endorsement of this product, but meant to be an example.)

Other Electronic Distribution of Articles from the Gazette

All content in the Loyalist Gazette is made available electronically, article by article, for sale through a royalty agreement with Thomson Gale, an international information provider. These copies through Thomson Gale's distributors provide an additional way for the general public to read various articles that appear in each issue of the magazine.
