Lives of the First World War

LAC tweeted out and blogged that the Canadian Expeditionary Forces databases and attestation papers will now be available through Lives of the First World War website. (LFWW). The site allows you to pieve together the Life Stories of over 8 million men and women from across Britain and the Commonwealth who served in uniform and worked on the home front during the First World War.
I also received a invitation from findmypast, the commercial partner of the Imperial War Museum which is the project lead, to claim a free one year LFWW subscription as a bonus for my FMP subscription.
The CEF database is the third most popular open dataset offered by the Canadian government.

Do you know it LAC will also post the Canadian material on their own web site? or if this will be how we need to access this material?
