The City of Calgary Archives

September 22, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

The City of Calgary Archives has an offsite storage facility in the Corporate Warehouse. It is a separate large room built within the warehouse in order to provide an environmentally-controlled storage area for the Archives’ holdings.

The City of Calgary Archives maintains the corporate memory of The City of Calgary. The records are part of the archival holdings and have been created to document the structure, functions, activities, and history of The City of Calgary and its predecessors. Deemed to have historical value, they are being preserved in order for citizens and City employees to have research access to them now and in the future.

If you are interested in seeing the space where Corporate Records, Archives stores a large portion of its archival holdings, as well as artifacts received by The City of Calgary, then this is the tour for you!


Tour our environmentally-controlled storage area to view historical records and artifacts, and learn about some of the design features used to facilitate the long-term preservation and availability of records to future users.

Hear about the history of the municipal government of The City of Calgary and the role of the archives as the official repository of its permanently valuable records.

Tours will be provided at 10:00 am, 11:00 am, 1:00 pm, 2:00 pm and 3:00 pm.
Tours will take approximately 45 minutes, including questions.
A maximum of 10 – 15 participants per tour.

Please note that food and drinks are not allowed in the Archives’ storage area.
