Estructura administrativa

The United Church of Canada Archives in Toronto is made up of the General Council Archives, the highest legislative court and national organizing body of United Church, as well as the Ontario Regional Councils Archives which consists of Canadian Shield Regional Council, Antler River Watershed Regional Council, Western Ontario Waterways Regional Council, Horseshoe Falls Regional Council, Shining Waters Regional Council, East Central Ontario Regional Council and parts of Eastern Ontario Outaousis Regional Council. The Archives holds the records in a variety of formats of the General Council Office and those of the Regions, Communities of Faith, former Conferences and presbyteries of the Central Ontario region.

Local records are held across the country by the United Church Archives Network. Each archival facility operates independently and has unique holdings and finding aids. Please consult the Archives Directory available on our website for searching for records outside of the General Council or Ontario Regional Councils Archives' purview.
