Ontario's first County Archives was established in 1966, and continues to be a leader among small and municipal archives. The Simcoe County Archives manages the permanent records of both the County of Simcoe and its constituent municipalities, and documents the collective memory of the County by acquiring and preserving the historical record in all recording media.

The SCA has a Scented Products Policy. Exposure to scented products is known to cause health concerns among staff and visitors. Please avoid the use of scented products when visiting the Archives. You may be asked to refrain from using such products.
