Founded in 1982, the mandate of the original Archives for the History of Canadian Psychiatry and Mental Health Services was to preserve, and make available for study, material concerning the history and development of psychiatry including addictions and other mental health services in Canada, especially Ontario. In 2000, that original mandate was broadened towards a phased evolution as the Corporate (non-clinical/patient) Archives for the permanent operational and administrative records of CAMH.
Prospective researchers should make an enquiry beforehand on the nature of their interests by mail, phone or e-mail, and to arrange for an appointment.
