Tour: The Library and Archives Canada Preservation Centre (Gatineau)

The Library and Archives Canada Preservation Centre opened in June 1997 in Gatineau, Quebec. Its facilities are dedicated to the preservation of Ottawa’s documentary heritage. This centre of excellence provides collection storage areas with optimum environmental conditions, and laboratories equipped for preservation activities.

It is a unique building containing 48 climate-controlled preservation vaults and state-of-the-art preservation laboratories.  Vaults are designed to protect documents by eliminating potential threats, by a sophisticated fire detection and suppression system, and by carefully controlling all materials used inside the vault to maintain a contaminant-free environment
