Municipal Archives Interest Group (MAIG)

About

Formed in 1994, the Municipal Archives Interest Group (MAIG) represents municipal archivists, institutions and individuals interested in the preservation and use of municipal and other community based records in Ontario. Members of the AAO who work for municipal archives automatically gain access to this interest group, allowing for resource sharing, roundtable discussions and access to the MAIGazine, a yearly publication that provides members with provincial updates. Throughout the year MAIG hosts two meetings, an annual Open House at a members’ archive, and an Annual General Meeting, which takes place at the AAO’s yearly conference.

We are always happy to hear from our colleagues, so if you have any news, suggestions, comments or concerns, please feel free to contact us!

Survey Results: Pandemic Recovery and Impacts on Municipal/Government Archives

The results from the Municipal/Government Archive COVID-19 Pandemic Recovery Survey are now in. This survey was created as a collaborative effort between the Municipal Archives Interest Group and the Institutional Development Committee of the AAO to gauge and better understand how Ontario Archives are recovering from the impacts of the pandemic, and the challenges that archives continue to face. To determine how to best support our members during pandemic recovery, we asked Ontario archives for assistance in providing important information to the AAO Board and MAIG Executive, through completing this short survey. We had eleven archives respond in total, including nine municipal/government archives.

All survey responses from Municipal and Government Archives are available to view online here. Information from other respondents will be kept anonymous at this time.

Feel free to contact the MAIG Executive with any questions or concerns about the survey.


The Archives Association of Ontario (AAO) is led by a committed community of volunteers from across the province.
