Fire Insurance plans provide detailed information about buildings and neighbourhoods. The Archives has fire insurance plans from 1858 to 1973. Most are from between 1880 and 1924. Not all areas are covered for all these years.

Fire Insurance Plans are fully accessible for viewing online. However as the plans are in a JPEG 2000 format, they are not available for downloading. Should you require copies of Fire Insurance Plans, plates must be purchased individually.
