Welcome to the Archives’ Website!
Our office documents the life and work of The Presbyterian Church in Canada by acquiring and preserving records of enduring evidential and historical value to the Church.
Our holdings consist of over 3,500 square feet of textual records, 30,000 photographs, hundreds of architectural plans, thousands of hours of audio-visual recordings, and well over a million pages on microfilm. The oldest item in the Archives dates from 1638.
We offer a comfortable research/reading room equipped with two microfilm reader/printers and a photocopier for your convenience.
``Surely to know the past is to plan for the future!``
- The Rev. Dr. John A. Johnston
Reminder: According to Appendix G-4.4 in the Book of Forms there is a no mould policy in effect at the Archives. Any records with evidence of either mould or mildew should contact the Archivist directly for instruction. These records should not be sent to the Archives without consultation.
