Description of a Record Creator

This page is a description of a “record creator” – a person, family or organization that has created archival records. The Archives’ collection includes historical records of provincial significance created by individuals as well as organizations such as associations, community groups, clubs, businesses and unions.

Archives are not organized by their subject content. Rather, they are arranged into groups according to the person or organization that created or accumulated them in the course of conducting their personal, professional or business activities.

In addition to providing a brief biography of a person or the history of an organization, the description of a record creator provides links to the group or groups of records that this person or organization created.

For more information see How Non-government records are Organized.
