Library and Archives Canada is the national memory bank. Discover the story of Canada, not as it is interpreted in history books, but through direct contact with original documents from the past. The Archives preserve tens of millions of records ranging from personal photographs to official government documents. Library and Archives Canada is open to all researchers, whether professional or amateur. Visitors are also welcome to enjoy the exhibitions.
