City of Toronto Archives
Search the Archives’ database for records and information.
At the City of Toronto Archives you can find historical records (information), including:
- records created by the City of Toronto government
- records created by municipal governments that existed before the 1998 amalgamation
- papers of people, families, organizations and businesses
- maps, plans and architectural drawings
From July 4-July 24 we expect longer than normal wait times on photo orders requiring digitization, with processing time taking between 10-15 business days. Also during this period, the Archives will not be able to digitize any materials whose dimensions are greater than 11″ x 17″. Normal service will resume after July 24. Thank you for your understanding.
