Scope and Content

Fonds consists of administrative and operational records of Easter Seals Ontario. The fonds primarily documents the fundraising and promotional activities of the organisation and affiliated service clubs, though the fonds also contains records relating to direct delivery of services, provision of financial support to community-based service providers, and administration of the organisation and camping sites and programs.

The records also include correspondence and internal memoranda, research reports, financial statements and annual reports, architectural drawings and photographs, and aggregated data on Easter Seals' clients in the form of its Central Client Case File Registry.
