Northwestern Ontario Archivists' Association (NOAA)


The Northwestern Ontario Archivists' Association (NOAA) was established in 1988 by a small but dedicated group of individuals with interests in archival studies.  Representing archives and archivists throughout the region, our main objective is to care for the needs of archivists and users of archives. To this end we promote the preservation and public use of historical records in Ontario and hold meetings, workshops and lectures to improve archival standards and practices in the field.  

Through our affiliation with the Archives Association of Ontario we are able to run AAO sponsored core curriculum, advanced workshops, and continuing education courses. Offerings include workshops on archival arrangement and description, acquisition, introduction to records management, reference and public service, media collections, authority controls and graphics.
