Provincial Archives of Alberta
The Provincial Archives of Alberta (PAA) acquires, preserves and publicly makes available records from government, individual people and organizations for researchers of all ages.
Discover a piece of Alberta's past, find a lost relative or donate your own records and leave your mark on Alberta’s history. The doors are open for you to see Alberta in a different way.
Our vaults hold millions of documented historical facts, photos, films and other records about Alberta’s past. Whether you are a seasoned genealogist or a student researching your next project, we have the resources and staff to point you in the right direction.
The Provincial Archives remains closed for now, but we are reviewing our operations to determine how and when we can welcome Albertans back in a safe and responsible way. Please keep watching our website and social media channels for updates.
