Over the last few years, The ArQuives (formerly the CLGA) has learned that embracing change, engagement, disruption, and new challenges is key to unlocking our communities’ strengths and ensuring we remain relevant for years to come. In 2018 we put this principle into practice and reshaped the path we are taking in aid of collecting, preserving, and sharing the diverse stories of LGBTQ2+ people in Canada.

There are many more highlights you will read about in this report, including our work on The Body Politic and Mirha-Soleil Ross, so I would like to take this moment to thank our volunteers and Board of Directors, who have been working tirelessly to ensure that The ArQuives follows our mandate to Keep Our Stories Alive; our committed staff, who keep The ArQuives running smoothly; and our generous donors, without whom we would not be able to pursue our mission to preserve and share LGBTQ2+ histories.

Published in May 2017 (PDF 7 MB)
Please take a moment to read through our 2016 Annual Report. From new archival donations to hundreds of people engaged, to the digitization of our collections, and exhibits of our material, it was one of the most engaging years in The ArQuives’s history.
We thank everyone who contributed to our dynamic year — our volunteers who contributed over 12,000 hours of work on our collections, providing public service to researchers, and supporting The ArQuives in myriad ways; our donors who provided funding and materials to the core of what we do; and everyone who has been a part of this past year. We would not be where we are today without your generous support.
