The Archives has re-opened to researchers by appointment Monday to Thursday. Simply visit our new Archives Booking Calendar and select your day.

In June 2020, the Association of Canadian Archivists (ACA) held their 45th Annual Conference with the theme “Seeing Archives Differently”. The NVMA sent its archives team to the conference. Read on to hear their impressions and observations of this brave new world! 

Ever wondered when your home was built or who lived there before you? The NVMA has a variety of records and other materials that document the history of buildings in North Vancouver.

Want to explore our collection but don’t know where to start? We’ve created a quick start guide to help you search the Archives of North Vancouver database like a pro!

In March 2019 the Archives started preparing for an exhibition on prominent North Vancouver photographer, Jack Cash. He was born in 1918 to Gwen Cash, the first woman general reporter in Canada, and had big shoes to fill. Instead of words, Jack used images to tell stories.

The archival photographs, logbooks, cameras, and ephemera included in the Jack Cash exhibition are part of a larger donation to the Archives by Cash’s son, Derek Cash. The Archives has worked closely with Derek Cash to prepare the exhibit at the Community History Centre in Lynn Valley.

In March 2020, the temporary closure of the Archives presented an opportunity to digitize parts of the exhibition and launch it online! We are excited to expand the reach of this exhibition and to have it included as part of the Capture Festival online events.
