The Law Society of Ontario, previously the Law Society of Upper Canada, established an archives in 1982 to preserve the heritage of the legal profession in Ontario.
Mandates/Sources of authority
The Archives serves as the repository for all records of permanent value to the Law Society of Ontario. The Archives also accepts donations of non-Law Society material that document the Ontario legal profession (lawyers, paralegals, judges, law firms, and legal organizations). In addition, the Archives serves as an information resource centre for Law Society staff, members of the public, and the legal profession.
