The archives and reference library is housed in a secure controlled access area in room 407 of the Armoury on 715 Bay Street.  Fire safety requirements necessarily restrict access to eight (8) people at a time.  Please write or call the adjutant at 250 363-8270 or e-mail ahead to check on availability.  Volunteers staff the library and archives so one should expect up to one month wait for arrangements to view. 

The archives contain over 550 linear feet of documents and special collections.  The collection is now in the 1st year of an ambitious 5 year project to digitize: our hand written finding aides to modern standards of identification; ; photographs and documents; as well as continuing to apply the latest care and preservation techniques to the collection.
