Provincial Acquisition Strategy for Ontario

The Provincial Acquisition Strategy (PAS) is a set of principles and guidelines designed to ensure and promote the cooperative acquisition and preservation of Ontario’s archival heritage at the local, regional and provincial levels and to lay the foundation for a provincial documentation strategy aimed at filling in the gaps in the province’s documentary memory.

PAS is overseen by the Institutional Development Committee (IDC).
