Administrative History or Biographical Sketch

The Ontario Association of Archivists was formed in 1982 following discussions among members of the Toronto Area Archivists Group, the Eastern Ontario Archivists Association, and other regional associations; it was disbanded in 1993 upon the formation of the Archives Association of Ontario.

The Archives Association of Ontario was established in 1993 as a result of the amalgamation of the Ontario Association of Archivists and the Ontario Council of Archives.
