Below are the functional records groups for the various General Council records functions. Files in these groups are created and maintained by any unit in General Council Office. Each group has a specific retention period where the files need to be held by the originating unit before it can be transferred to the Archives for review or be securely destroyed.
The retention schedules apply to both paper and electronic files.
The General Council retention plan is outlined below and can be downloaded (PDF, 586 KB), for convenience.
The Records Management Policy and Procedures Manual (PDF, 1 MB) is a companion document to the Classification and Retention Plan and provides comprehensive information about the Records Management Program.
Please consult the guidelines and procedures prior to transferring documents to the Archives or securely shredding paper documents.
