In the fall of each year, the members of MAIG host an open house at a model municipal archives in the province. Municipal officials and the general public are invited for an inside look at such a program in the hopes that this will foster interest in the development of similar programs throughout the province. It is also an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of the host institution. Municipal archivists are, furthermore, on-site to answer any questions.
