Since 1989, Trent Valley Archives has promoted the preservation, identification and care of archives in the Trent Valley region. We support access to archival collections, as well as the development of public regional and county or municipal archives. We encourage businesses and organizations to archive pertinent records, and help individuals to care for their documents. Moreover, since 1998, we have maintained an archival repository with a collections mandate to accept original and copied archival documents relating to the Trent Valley. At present, we have about 1000 cubic feet of documents relating to people, events and places connected with the Trent Valley.
