Welcome to the New Archives of Ontario
The Archives of Ontario (AO) has moved. The doors of 77 Grenville Street closed on Thursday, March 26th at 5 p.m. and the new public service building at 134 Ian Macdonald Boulevard on the Campus of York University opened Thursday April 2nd at 9 a.m. This move to a new public access purpose-built facility is long overdue. The new building is fully equipped to preserve and showcase the AO collections, improve service, and increase customer access.
