Information & Outreach

Committee Co-chairs: Corser du Pont and Erin Acland


What we do

  • Advise on issues of concern to archives and archivists in Manitoba
  • Identify and develop activities required to enhance the awareness of archives in the province
  • Promote a better understanding and increased public awareness of the role and uses of archives
  • Draft news releases and other forms of communications as needed


The Information and Outreach Committee is currently involved in three major campaigns:

    • Advocating for a new facility for the City of Winnipeg Archives. For more information, please see the following documents:
        • Support for the University of Manitoba/University of Winnipeg Joint Master’s stream in Archival Studies.


          Both the Association of Canadian Archivists and the Canadian Council of Archives have been strong advocates for the archival community at a national level.  Examples of advocacy work and tools to assist archives in advocacy and public relations are available on their respective websites.  You can find those resources here.
