The United Church of Canada Archives at Victoria University, University of Toronto, is the 'Central Archives' for the Church's General Council and national offices. The Church, a union of four Canadian Protestant denominations (Methodist, Presbyterian, Congregational and Evangelical United Brethren), is divided into regional jurisdictions called conferences. Besides national-level records, the Central Archives additionally preserve the records of five of the conferences located in Ontario (Bay of Quinte, Toronto, Hamilton, London, and Manitou). According to the site, Victoria University will no longer host the United Church Central Archives after the end of April, 2008; thereafter, Victoria University will host only its own archives for its constituent colleges, Victoria College and Emmanuel College. Researchers are advised to check the website regularly for upcoming changes. Besides the national administration of the Church, the Central Archives has aforementioned Ontario holdings on: births; marriages; deaths; congregational matters and organizations; local church history; photographs; personal papers (a special finding aid for personal papers can be requested); clippings; audio-visual records; directories of ministers; annual reports; and a library collection of journals, pamphlets and rare books. The holdings can be searched through Ontario's archival gateway, ARCHEION. The Central Archives should offer material of interest for researchers working on Canadian history and for genealogists. Sociologists and social historians will note that under the federal 2006 Indian Residential Schools Settlement agreement, the Church has apologized for past treatment of Canadian aboriginal children in native schools. The site declares that it is cooperating with a 'Truth and Reconciliation Commission' and is committed to facing "the ugly realities of the residential school system," while preserving that system's history. Rules for access and visiting are provided.
