What is "RSS"?
RSS (Rich Site Summary or Really Simple Syndication) sends all of your news to one place. You no longer have to check websites one by one to see if they have been updated with new content, because the RSS feed does the work for you! For example, if you are interested in Ministry of Labour news releases, it eliminates having to check the site regularly for updates. RSS feeds deliver only the content you want to you directly.
Why subscribe to RSS feeds?
Subscribing to an RSS feed allows you to automatically receive the latest postings of a chosen news source on your desktop, so you don't need to repeatedly check your favourite websites for new content.
How do I start receiving RSS feeds from the Ministry?RSS feeds can be pulled together in two ways.
- Through a web-based reader: A feed reader is a free web-based service. It brings your selected RSS feeds from different websites to a central personalized site that you log into. Browser-based readers let you read your subscriptions from any computer, much like a web-based email service, such as Hotmail.
- Through desktop software you download and install: A downloadable feed reader works like a web-based reader, but exists on your computer, much like an email client, such as Outlook.
Once you have a reader, just click on the orange RSS button for the feed you want, copy the feed's URL, and then paste it into the appropriate field of your RSS Reader:
