Stratford-Perth Archives is preparing to move our new building. Over the next few months, the Archives will transfer about 7000 boxes of our collections to the new building from our current 3 branches and 4 off-site storage facilities.  Genuinely urgent and time sensitive requests for access to records needed for legal purposes will be accommodated during this period to the best of our abilities. Access to collections for all other research will be limited during these months per the schedule below.


Monday, November 10, 2014 Staff begin preparing collections for moving.  As boxes are colour coded, wrapped etc they will be unavailable to researchers until June 2015.

Friday, November 28, 2014 Stratford and Mitchell branches will close and the Archives will not be able to receive any records donations or transfers until June 2015.

Friday, January 30, 2015 Listowel branch will close.

Monday, May 4, 2015 we will reopen the reading room at the new building (with limited stack retrievals) with a new schedule of hours. We will move to retrievals from the stacks over the following 2 – 3 weeks.  Feel free to call ahead of any research visits in May to confirm what records are available.

Saturday, June 6, 2015 join us for a Grand Opening Celebration!

We will post updates regarding the progress of the move and any additional service disruptions on the Perth County website as the project moves along and you can contact us if you have any questions.

Telephone: 519-271-0531, ext 250


We regret any inconvenience caused to our clients as a result of these closures.

Thank you for your understanding and patience.
