Located in Gatineau, the Outaouais archives centre covers a territory with an area of 30,504 square kilometres. It is part of the network of 10 Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec (BAnQ) archives centres located throughout Québec. Dedicated to the preservation and development of the region's public and private archives, it offers researchers and the public a consultation room and efficient personnel to guide them in the use of the wide range of materials the centre holds.

Every year, it welcomes hundreds of patrons, essentially from the educational and professional sectors. They use the centre's services for research concerning the history of their families, localities or regions.

The Outaouais archives centre provides testimonials about the history of the Outaouais region since the middle of the 19th century. The entire collection includes:

  • 1508 linear metres of text documents;
  • 50,656 maps and plans;
  • 177,508 photographs;
  • 735 audiovisual materials.

  • Commission d'étude sur la région de l'Outaouais;
  • Superior Court;

The principal collections include the:

  • Mackay-Papineau families fonds;
  • Champlain Marcil fonds;

Partners

Installed in the Maison de la culture de Gatineau, the Outaouais archives centre is part of a partnership with a public organization (the Section de la gestion des documents et des archives of the Ville de Gatineau) and private organizations (the Centre régional d'archives de l'Outaouais – the only certified archives services in the region – and the Société de généalogie de l'Outaouais). As a result, the public has access to documentary and genealogical resources at a single location, called the Centre d'archives, de généalogie et d'histoire.
