Located in the Saguenay, the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean archives centre covers a territory with an area of 104,000 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 consultation rooms and efficient personnel to guide them in the use of the wide range of materials the centre holds.

It houses two consultation rooms. The reference room is a pleasant work area that houses a vast collection of works. In the microfilm room, visitors can use a half dozen microfilm readers/copiers, microfilm readers and two microfilm readers/digitizers.

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 Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean archives centre houses archives that can be used to trace the history of the region throughout almost all of the 20th century, including:

  • 1591 linear metres of text documents;
  • 463,296 photographs;
  • 17,815 aerial photographs;
  • 37,990 maps and plans;
  • 24,330 architectural drawings.

The public archives held by the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean archives centre document the activities of the government departments responsible for applying government policies in the region. Certain collections provide evidence of the commitments made by individuals or organizations (notaries' archives) or of the disputes that set them against one another (court archives).
