In-Person Services

Following the guidance of public health and government authorities on the evolving COVID-19 situation, the Archives of Ontario in-person services will be closed until further notice. 

This applies to our reading room, tour program, travelling exhibit loans,  and access to our classroom, exhibition space and facilities located at 134 Ian Macdonald Blvd.

Online services to the public will continue to be available through:

•  our website at Ontario.ca/archives
•   telephone at 416-327-1600 or 1-800-668-9933 Toll-Free Number (Ontario only)
•   email at reference@ontario.ca

At present, we are only processing critical requests which are required for legal or humanitarian reasons.  Once operations resume, all other requests will be processed in the order that they were received.

We thank you for your co-operation.


FOI Requests

Due to limited capacity to process FOI requests, the Archives of Ontario will be unable to respond to requests within legislated time frames. 

We are currently prioritizing critical requests that are required for legal or humanitarian reasons.  Once operations resume, all other requests will be processed in the order that they were received.  For further assistance, please contact archivesfoi@ontario.ca.
