City of Vancouver Archives

The City of Vancouver Archives has documented and preserved Vancouver's past since 1933 when the first City Archivist, Major J. S. Matthews, was appointed by City Council. We are a public institution administered by the City of Vancouver and the official repository of Vancouver's civic government records.

We have 1.5 million photographic images in a variety of formats, as well as 2 km of textual records, maps, audio, video, documentary art and born-digital media.
