Temporary Closure

The ArQuives will be temporarily closed to the public and all volunteers to support Toronto’s effort to contain the spread of COVID-19. We will close from March 14, 2020 through April 6, 2020, at which time we will revisit the situation to consider extending the closure, as needed. As the number of immuno-compromised folks in our community is already significant we are choosing to go this precautionary route for everyone’s well-being.

We recognize that this decision will have an impact on researchers, volunteers, staff, and the general public and appreciate everyone’s understanding in our efforts to secure health and safety for all of us.

If you are interested in doing research, please feel free to visit our Online Collection Portal and we will be happy to assist you when we reopen to the public. 

Toronto Public Health recommends the following preventative measures:
* Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer 
* Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth 
* Avoid close contact with people who are ill 
* Stay home when you are ill 
* Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then immediately throw the tissue in the garbage and wash your hands 
* If you don’t have a tissue, sneeze or cough into your sleeve or arm 
* Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces

The ArQuives is located on the lands of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, Haudenosaunee, the Anishnaabe and the Huron-Wendat. Today, Toronto is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work on this land.

The ArQuives strives to gather the stories of the unheard and silenced voices of the 2SLGBTQ+ first peoples of this land. We acknowledge that some stories have already been lost, and we aim to ensure that those that remain and those that are to come are preserved for the future.

The ArQuives has an access ramp to the front door and a lift from the first floor to the second floor. There are volunteers available to operate the lift. 

 There is an accessible washroom on the first floor. All washrooms are gender-neutral. 

 The ArQuives is a scent-free environment. 

 Please contact The ArQuives if you have any specific questions about accessibility that we can help with at queeries@arquives.ca.
