Fonds consists of records created and accumulated by the Registered Nurses' Association of Ontario in carrying out their mission of promoting excellence in nursing practice and advocating the role of nursing in empowering the people of Ontario to achieve and maintain their optimal health. These records document all activities of the organization, beginning with records from its establishment in 1904 as the Graduate Nurses' Association of Ontario.
Records relate to annual meetings, committees, conferences, workshops, legislation, finances, public relations, 50th anniversary activities, membership services, nursing education, employment relations, liaison with the government, as well as the Association's history. Also included are records concerning the 1984 Royal Commission of inquiry conducted under Ontario Justice Samuel Grange related to deaths at SickKids (Hospital for Sick Children).
