Nova Scotia Archives, 6016 University Ave. Halifax, Nova Scotia

The Nova Scotia Archives acquires, preserves and makes available the province's documentary heritage — recorded information of provincial significance created or accumulated by government and the private sector over the last 300 years.

One of Canada's oldest archival institutions, we maintain a strong tradition of client service. Each year we assist thousands of researchers and general-interest visitors, both onsite and online, in finding out more about themselves, their families, their communities and their province. We look forward to helping you!
