Municipal Records

The Provincial Archives’ Collection includes municipal records from rural municipalities, towns, villages and cities.

Municipal records in our Collection document:

  • the development, expansion and growth of local communities;
  • the relative prosperity of an area;
  • local history over time (for example, community events and the history of community associations/organizations), including changes in the social and professional dynamics within the community.

Records from a number of municipalities have been preserved at the Archives in their original format or on microfilm. Although the collection contains records from all regions of the province, it is by no means comprehensive. 

Access to municipal records is governed by 
The Local Authority Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act. For more information about accessing restricted records, please click here.

Access Restrictions may apply.
