Search Engine

The search engine offers quick access to information through bilingual (French or English) searches, by keyword or phrase.  The search function allows you to perform basic searches of the entire site.

Simply type one or more keywords into the "box" on the search page, and then hit the "Search" button. Our server will then look for any "matches" with your query within the CHRC database and show you a list of results.

By default, this search engine looks for the exact phrase you typed in. Typing multiple words will only find results that match all of the words in that exact sequence, except in some cases common words like a, and, the, etc.

The Search Engine is not case or accent sensitive.
