City Archives Opens its Doors to the Public


April 4, 2011 – The City of Thunder Bay Archives will be holding public tours on April 7 and 8, between 11 am and 2 pm, to celebrate Archives Awareness Week. The community is invited to visit for a behind-the-scenes look at this institution and its work.

As 2011 is the United Nations’ International Year of Forests, the Archives has prepared a display highlighting the work of the Forest Capital Development Association. This non-profit organization celebrated Ontario’s Northwest being named the Forest Capital of Canada in 2000 by planning and carrying out events and activities across the region.

Visitors will also be invited to explore records and artifacts showing the development of Thunder Bay’s public parks from the earliest years of the 20th century to the present.

Archives Awareness Week is celebrated in Ontario on the first week of April. Events are held in historical institutions across the province.
