The archives reference room is currently closed to the general public, we plan to reopen in early 2021.  During this time, the archives is reviewing our systems, monitoring the pandemic closely and looking at how we can safely open the reference room. Provided we are able to open safely and we have adequate PPE in place we will revisit the opening date. Right now we are doing what we can to protect staff, researchers and the collections.

Some records are available on the archives’ website, navigate through the site from the archives’ homepage and find records through our online Archives Search.  If the records that you seek are not online, if you would like assistance or advice in locating records, or if you have an urgent request for legal or treaty negotiation purposes, please contact staff at
