The Archives Association of Ontario (AAO) was established in 1993 as a result of the amalgamation of the Ontario Association of Archivists and the Ontario Council of Archives.
The AAO promotes archives as vital to the fair, transparent, and equitable operations of the Canadian and Ontario governments and society as a whole through our many services. Please explore the AAO's website to connect and learn about the work of archivists in preserving Ontario and Ontarians' history and culture.
The AAO is a network of archives and archivists providing programs, education, advocacy and shared knowledge, consisting of approximately 300 members. The AAO represents archival institutions, those working in archives, as well as volunteers, patrons, and supporters of archives.
In carrying out its mission, the AAO promotes the development of a co-operative system of archives in Ontario by:
