International Archives Day - June 9, 2017
The theme for International Archives Day 2017 is Archives, Citizenship and Interculturalism. Archives are a great place to go to be informed and to start dialogues. Celebrate June 9 - International Archives Day - with us.
Simcoe County Archives
A Canadian Centennial Project, we just celebrated 50 years of service. Simcoe County Archives was the first one of its kind in the Province of Ontario. We acquire permanent records from 18 municipal corporations, as well as from private citizens, corporations and organizations. We collect material on all aspects of Simcoe County's history.
Elected to represent the citizens of Simcoe County's lower-tier municipalities, County Councillors deliberate and make decisions on a wide variety of issues. Have a look through the Simcoe County Council Minutes, to see what these informed citizens were discussing between 1846 and 1952.
The residents of Simcoe County represent diverse cultural backgrounds. During 2017, the Simcoe County Archives commemorates Canada 150. All year we are posting articles on our Blog which recognize the contributions of diverse communities to our collective history.
