We want to hear from you!

Ways to get involved:

In 2019/2020, experts contracted by the City completed a jurisdictional scan of like-sized archives, consulted with stakeholders, identified program needs and space requirements, and identified options and financial projections for securing and adapting a facility for the archives.

In January 2020, the team met with stakeholders to gather their feedback. Meetings included representatives from City departments, the Manitoba Historical Society, Heritage Winnipeg, the Winnipeg Foundation, the Association for Manitoba Archives, the Centre du Patrimoine, and the University of Winnipeg. Notes from these meetings are available here.

The feedback provided by stakeholders was then used by the consultant when developing the Program Facility Requirements.

A report on the consultant’s findings and a summary of the findings is now available. There’s also a summary of the archives proposed service improvements and facility options.

Additional work completed in 2021 to update the specifications, designs, and construction costs for re-developing the former Carnegie Library (380 William Ave.) for the archives is available here. This work was done to support the review of options by members of the Public Service.

The City is now reaching out to stakeholders and the community to collect feedback on the consultant’s findings to determine recommendations for Council consideration.

Join us for a virtual community workshop to discuss the future of the City of Winnipeg Archives. We will be presenting and then breaking out into smaller groups to discuss service improvements and facility options.
