ABOUT NATIONAL ARCHIVES OF CANADA One of Canada's oldest cultural agencies, the National Archives of Canada was established in 1872, and serves as the collective memory of the nation. It does so by acquiring, describing, and preserving significant archival material relating to Canadian life - literally millions of manuscripts, photographs, films, maps, tapes, video recordings, books, paintings, drawings, prints, and electronic and other records. The Archives is responsible for conserving Canada's archival heritage and making it available to as wide an audience as possible. While most of the material is in traditional "hardcopy" form, the Archives has been collecting and preserving electronic records for about twenty years. We would like to make these computer files available to users of NCF.Available online for your reading pleasure include such wonderful stories as "Borrowing microform from National Archives," "Tracing your ancestors," "Information on shipwrecks in Canada," and "Treaties with aboriginal peoples."
This site also provides a very useful guide to doing research at the National Archives in Ottawa.
