If you have ever used the wealth of material available in Canada's archives or if you are interested in doing so, this conference is for you! Know any new recruits to archival research? Help us issue an order: Basic Training starts November 27 in Gatineau. “Archives and You! Everything you wanted to know about archives… but were afraid to ask” is Canada’s only national conference for users of archives, a compulsory archival boot camp—without the push-ups—for genealogists, researchers, teachers, librarians, historians, students, curators, volunteers, and anyone with interest in Canada’s documentary heritage.
From first-rate plenary sessions, to interactive roundtables and workshops, exhibits and tours of local archives, “Archives and You!” is designed to sharpen archival users’ tool-set and strengthen their relationship with the archival community. Submit to history: enlist the masses!

Parking is available at the Plaza de la Chaudière at a rate of $13.55/day. To access a map to the hotel, click here.
