How to search government websites

It is quick and easy to search government websites.

1. Go to

2. type site: followed directly by the name of the government website.

3. type your search term.

Example: "bill 30"

Popular government websites: (all federal government websites) (Parliament website), (Department of Justice), (debates of the Saskatchewan Legislative Assembly).  This strategy also works for all other non-governmental websites: searches the website of the Faculty of Business Administation at the University of Regina.

Other tips: do you want to just search for pdfs?  Type *.pdf after your search term!
