Advisory Services

Committee Chair:


The Association for Manitoba Archives established its Advisory Services Program in 1990. This is one of several programs offered by the AMA to support and encourage the development of sustainable archives in Manitoba.

What we do:

The Advisory Services Program provides:

  • advice to archival institutions working to improve procedures and practices
  • advice to organizations desiring to care for their archival records
  • advice to organizations that may wish to start an archives

How we do it:

Advice and information may be delivered through site assessment, individual consultation and/or workshops.

Who is eligible?

Members of the Association for Manitoba Archives, not-for-profit organizations, or businesses that have been in existence for a minimum of five years and do not have an agreement with an existing archives; and individuals holding significant records.

To discuss or arrange Advisory Services please contact the Advisory Services Committee Chair.

Note: Eligible applicants must be willing to make their archives accessible to the public on a regular basis within a reasonable period of time after the completion of the advisory process.

Additional Services:

If you would like to hire an archival professional to work on your collections (to perform specific archival program functions such as archival appraisals, accessioning, processing and describing records, digitization or digital preservation) or to advise you in your work, the AMA has a listing of individual members who have indicated their willingness to work with organizations, business or individuals on archival issues on a fee-for-service basis. While these archival professionals are not employed by or accredited by the Association for Manitoba Archives, they have experience in the field. The AMA will provide you with the name of an archival professional whom you might choose to contact. The individual would then answer questions about their availability, services, or charges. If interested, please contact the or the AMA office at

If you are an archival professional or professional working in a related field and would like your contact information to be included on, updated in or removed from this list, please send your request to


The AMA has created a number of resources to which institutions may refer. They can be found on our Professional Development page.
