In a notice posted on Monday LAC announced that as of 1 March research, by reservation only, will restart. Use the online booking system to schedule your next visit.
“When consulting our website, you will notice that our Ottawa service offerings have been enhanced. They now include greater access to the Special Collections Room (third floor) and the Reference Room (second floor). This is part of our previously announced plan to gradually increase our service offerings.
You can 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).
Note that the temporary closure of our services to the public in Ottawa as of Friday, January 28, was the result of circumstances beyond our control.”
LAC has already been allowing people with reservations cancelled owing to the occupation (euphemistically “circumstances beyond our control”) to rebook.
