Recent Private Sector Acquisitions

The National Archives regularly acquires new records (fonds, collections, items) from the private sector — that is, from individuals, businesses and organizations. The following is only a small selection of records acquired in the past three months.

Please note that recent acquisitions will not generally be made available to researchers until they have been brought under control through arrangement and description. Depending on the resources, the size of the acquisition and the backlog of work in the processing areas, it may take from several weeks to several years to make a new acquisition available for consultation and reproduction.

Feature Film Acquisition Program 2001-2002: As part of a Memorandum of Understanding signed with Canadian Heritage, The National Archives of Canada received funding to acquire feature films not already in its holdings.

[A number of Canadian feature films were acquired this year].

Short Film Acquisition Program 2001-2002: The short film acquisition program continued with the acquisition of 26 films. Many Canadian short films have won recognition and awards at major festivals, but due to their relatively small budgets and the increasing numbers of independent producers, preservation of originals and masters have often remained outside proper archival storage. Amongst the films was a selection of 14 shorts by new and established filmmakers from the Canadian Film Centre's catalogue including films made by producers, writers and directors who have attended the Centre since 1992. Included were films by established directors Don McKellar, Vincenzo Natali (who also directed the internationally acclaimed feature Cube), Helen Lee, and Clement Virgo.

During his contracts as a freelancer for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, Ray Stone also conducted other interviews of people who worked and lived in the Arctic and the Canadian north who were mainly experts in their respective fields of work. Excerpts of some of these unedited interviews were used by the CBC Northern Service for such CBC program series as , The Days Before Yesterday.
