The Archives established in 1973 is part of Corporate Services - Knowledge and Information Services. The Archives is the official repository for the Bank's historical records.

Our Mission

The Archives preserves the corporate memory of the Bank of Canada by acquiring, preserving, and making accessible records of continuing value that best describe the Bank's origins, policies, interests, evolution, functions, and activities.

Records in the Archives, to which certain access restrictions apply, include handwritten notes, typewritten correspondence, memoranda, and news clippings; over 25,000 photographs, scrapbooks, posters (Victory Loans and Canada Savings Bonds), and architectural drawings; films; and audio and video cassettes.
