The Archives of Ontario is the largest provincial archives in Canada, and the premier source of information about the history of Ontario and its people. Since 1903, they have been collecting, preserving and making available the documentary heritage of the province, with records that date back to the 16th century. Their collections include everything from handwritten letters to books, maps, architectural drawings, photographs, artwork, films, sound recordings, electronic documents and more. During Digital Doors Open, the Archives provides ample opportunity to explore Ontario’s unique collections. With over 24 TB of digital records available, you can check out their online databases of immigration records, images, the Government of Ontario Art Collection (peek inside the art vault in the video below), and extensive genealogical records, including births, marriages and deaths. Online exhibits highlight the Archives’ collections – from Black history and French Ontario to the War of 1812 and the First World War to toys from our past and an Eaton’s Christmas. Lots of videos accompany these exhibits (and enhance their collections) on their YouTube channel, too. The Archives also provides excellent and extensive resources for educators and students, as well as genealogical resources for tracing your family tree.
