Dundas County Archives

The Dundas County Archives are the custodians of permanent and historical civic government records on behalf of the North and South Dundas Municipalities and its many departments, as well as local, community records with historical value. We preserve, acquire and make these documents accessible for Staff, the public, and other researchers, for present and future generations.

Our goal is to preserve records that enhance our understanding of the history, evolution, and development of the Dundas County social fabric, natural and built environment, and the people that lived, worked, and made significant contributions to the shaping of Dundas County.

Archives and public access to records promotes accountability and transparency in government, and documents the interaction between elected officials and citizens. This encourages citizen participation and ownership of their government and their community.
