Archives

Gloved hands turning pages of a document at the Greater Sudbury Archives.

History

In 2007, Xstrata Nickel donated their former office building, known as the Thomas Edison building, to the city for use as an archives with By-Law 2007-176.  In 2008, a professional archivist was hired.  After several years acquiring records and renovating the building to meet unique archival needs, the City of Greater Sudbury Archives officially opened to the public by appointment on May 3rd, 2012. 

Mandate

The Archives serves the entire population of the City of Greater Sudbury and its institutions by acquiring, preserving and providing access to records of enduring value which show evidence of the activities of the City of Greater Sudbury and its predecessors. These records include both municipal government records and private records of organizations, businesses or individuals that make or have made a significant contribution to an understanding of the development of the city.

Hours

The Archives is open to researchers by appointment. To schedule an appointment please see the Visiting Us page.
