Private Donations

The City of Thunder Bay Archives holds a number of collections that have been donated by other organizations or private individuals. These are also accessible to the public under the same conditions as City of Thunder Bay records.

Collections include:

The City of Thunder Bay Archives uses four categories to describe how access may be granted to archival records:

(A) Fully Accessible
(A*) Records in question are generally available for public use, but some files may be restricted. Archives staff will perform a quick review upon request for access and may require you to file a formal request for some files or documents.
(RST) Records are restricted and require a formal request for access. Access to records may be denied based on restrictions in the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act. A research agreement may need to be signed prior to having access to these records.
(PIB) These records are a Personal Information Bank and may only be accessed by the person to whom the records relate, or that person's representative.
  Series without a classification code have not yet been designated, but are also be subject to Freedom of Information/Privacy legislation

Requests for records classified as Restricted may be redirected as formal requests under the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act. In any case, requests for access will be processed as quickly as possible but cannot be done on the spot.

On most computers, you can search any of the finding aid PDF documents once opened by pressing CTRL-F or selecting "Find."
