#AAW2016 was quite successful with many interesting events going on around the province to celebrate archives during the week of April 4-10.  Thank you to everyone who opened their doors to the public, hosted a special event, posted about it on Twitter, Facebook and the AAOLIST.

AAO with generous support from the Archives of Ontario created posters and other resources for our members use in planning or promoting archives during this celebratory week.  We also hosted a calendar of your events here on the website for public to see what was happening where.

Now we are already beginning to think about Archives Awareness Week 2017.  We would appreciate your feedback about this year and whether our resources were useful to you and which ones you used.  We would also like to hear your comments and ideas for how AAO can help promote Archives Awareness in 2017. This is a big year as Canada celebrates 150 years of confederation so we want to ensure everyone knows the value and importance of archives in telling our story of the past 150 years and for the next 150.  You an send your ideas, suggestions, comments, via email to
