Centre for Canadian Architecture's Visit to the
Gatineau Preservation Centre


Always willing to share their expertise, the National Archives welcomed about forty colleagues from Montreal’s Centre for Canadian Architecture on June 16, 2000 for a tour of the Gatineau Preservation Centre. There, in this ultra-modern building, they found state-of-the art equipment specially designed for the storage, preservation, restoration and reproduction of documents. The visit offered an opportunity to see the different vaults housing black and white photographs, architectural documents and works of art, while learning about the different kinds of shelving, restoration treatments and climate conditions used in archival practices. The visitors also enjoyed the exhibitions displayed on the ground floor.

The National Archives regularly offers group visits to the Preservation Centre throughout the year from September to June, whether made up of specialists or the general public. If you have a group of at least 12 people who would be interested in seeing the vaults where the documents, photographs and artwork which make up the collective memory of the nation are stored, please call (613) 992-9359 for a reservation. Visitors are welcome to view the exhibitions, Stay Tuned and Canada’s Prime Ministers, on the ground floor, between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. daily. No reservation is needed and admission is free.
