What We Do

The Diocesan Archives offers safe, secure and climate-controlled storage for non-current parish records. This includes baptism, marriage and burial registers for both current and closed parishes across the Diocese of Toronto, as well as historical parish records, photographs, drawings, and other commemorative items. For more information, see our Guide to the Diocesan Archives brochure.

The Archives also acts as a records centre and maintains the central filing system for active and semi-active files of the Diocese. This includes records on:

  • parish and diocesan property
  • correspondence
  • deanery minutes and correspondence
  • diocesan boards and committees
  • treasury files
  • personnel files

Parishes and diocesan staff can consult Archives staff about recordkeeping, storage and records retention. Visit our Information for Parishes page for more details.

Researchers and other visitors can learn more about accessing our collections on our Information for Researchers page.
