LAC Shutdown

Don’t plan on doing research at Library and Archives Canada over the Christmas – New Year period. Here’s the notice.

Library and Archives Canada’s (LAC) public service points located in Ottawa, Vancouver, Winnipeg and Halifax will be closed to the public from December 24, 2021 to January 3, 2022, inclusive. Remote reference and genealogy services remain available during this period, Monday to Friday except for December 27 and 28, and January 3.

Contact us by using our Ask Us a Question or Ask Us a Genealogy Question forms, or by calling 1-866-578-7777 (option 8; toll-free in Canada and the United States).

Please note that after the holidays, a gradual increase in our services is planned. Visit our Reopening Library and Archives Canada web page for an overview of services available and region-specific details.
