Managing Records

The proper care and maintenance of records is of the utmost importance. Records generated and accumulated by The United Church of Canada record the vital activities that the organization performs and provide information to internal staff and outside researchers.

The United Church of Canada Archives has created guidelines and helpful tips to aid Communities of Faith, Regional Councils and General Council with the organization, maintenance and transfer or destruction of records.

Contact us with any questions you may have about the process.

If you are an individual or organization outside the United Church of Canada wishing to give records to the Archives please visit the donation section of the website.
