With a fresh and modern building that opened on Monday, the City of Ottawa Central Archives aims to encourage greater use. "The archives is now a public facility, a public institution, because of this building," said City of Ottawa project manager Christopher Wanczycki. The goal is "to have citizens of Ottawa come and understand that this is theirs."

The $38.6-million building is located at 100 Tallwood Dr. at the corner of Woodroffe Avenue on the city's west side. It is called the City of Ottawa Archives and Ottawa Public Library Materials Centre because it includes the library's collection management and distribution services, which were previously located downtown.
