Municipal Archives Interest Group (MAIG)


Formed in 1994, the Municipal Archives Interest Group (MAIG) represents municipal archivists, institutions and individuals interested in the preservation and use of municipal and other community based records in Ontario. Members of the AAO who work for municipal archives automatically gain access to this interest group, allowing for resource sharing, roundtable discussions and access to the MAIGazine, a yearly publication that provides members with provincial updates. Throughout the year MAIG hosts two meetings, an annual Open House at a members’ archive, and an Annual General Meeting, which takes place at the AAO’s yearly conference.

We are always happy to hear from our colleagues, so if you have any news, suggestions, comments or concerns, please feel free to contact us!
