Plan Your Visit
Planning your visit will help to ensure that you get the most out of your time at the Provincial Archives. It is helpful to prepare for your visit by reading any published sources available on your research topic before approaching the original primary sources at the Provincial Archives.
Please browse or search our collection to see if we have any materials that would be relevant to your topic in advance of your visit.
Once you have a starting point, you can contact our dedicated and knowledgeable staff regarding your research interests, since some resources available at the Provincial Archives are not yet described in our database.
You are not required to make an appointment, but it helps to contact us before your visit, to determine which sources may be available for your topic, their extent, and their accessibility.
Research at a Distance
If you are unable to visit the Reading Room in person, please submit an enquiry.
Due to limited resources, Archives staff are unable to conduct in-depth research on any topic.
For projects requiring detailed or extensive research, you may need to visit in person or consider hiring a professional researcher to undertake research on your behalf.
