To better serve our clients, we have opened a new public service point in Vancouver. You will find us in the iconic Central Library of the Vancouver Public Library, on the 6th floor at 350 West Georgia Street.
West Coast residents, do you need help ordering a copy of a historic Canadian photograph held in our collection? Do you want to see your grandfather’s digitized First World War service file? Or do you simply want to learn what Library and Archives Canada’s (LAC) collection is all about? You will now have easier access to LAC reference specialists!
We also hold original archival documents created by Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada and its predecessor departments in British Columbia and Yukon. You may consult these documents by booking an appointment with our specialists.
A special event with the Right Honourable Kim Campbell for our opening
On November 8, we held a special event with the Right Honourable Kim Campbell, former Prime Minister of Canada. More than a hundred people saw a lively conversation between Ms. Campbell and Guy Berthiaume, the Librarian and Archivist of Canada. Stay tuned for more public programming announcements in the coming months.
You may contact us toll-free at 1-866-578-7777, or locally at 604-666-9699 (Vancouver area). More information about our service points outside of Ottawa, including service hours, is available on the LAC website.
