For the first time in 100 years the Archives de Montréal has moved its records from the vaults from the basement of city hall in Old Montreal, Hôtel de Ville. The move is for three years, expecting to return to the original site in 2022. The move is precipitated by renovations in city hall. More than 11,000 boxes of archival records have been moved, a total of 15,000 will eventually be relocated. Additionally, 11,000 registers will be relocated. The new location is:

5800 rue Saint-Denis
Montreal, Quebec

Researchers can access the archives by appointment. Email:
