Government Records Program

The Provincial Archives of Alberta houses the records of the Government of Alberta, its corporations, agencies, boards, commissions and courts that are of enduring value to the institutions and citizens of the province.

The Provincial Archives' Government Records program is part of the government-wide records and information management program.

The records housed at the PAA are subject to the FOIP Act which governs the accessibility of some records. Please contact the PAA's Access Archivist to access records required for a FOIP request.

Government of Alberta employees that need access to government records should contact the Government Records Program. Members of the general public with inquiries about government records should contact the Sandra Thomson Reading Room at the Provincial Archives of Alberta.
