Modernizing Textual Reprography Services at LAC

An announcement is posted by Library and Archives Canada that as of November 15, 2010, a service providing copies of various textual records in digital format for download from the website will be offerred. In certain cases the digital image will then be made freely available.

As I recall, this has been the subject of a trial using WW1 service files for some months. While there will be a saving to the client on shipping costs it appears the reproduction cost will remain unchanged as will the time to deliver --- 6-10 weeks for regular service.
