There are many more highlights you will read about in this report, including our work on The Body Politic and Mirha-Soleil Ross, so I would like to take this moment to thank our volunteers and Board of Directors, who have been working tirelessly to ensure that the CLGA follows our mandate to Keep Our Stories Alive; our committed staff, who keep the CLGA running smoothly; and our generous donors, without whom we would not be able to pursue our mission to preserve and share LGBTQ2+ histories.

Please take a moment to read through our 2016 Annual Report. From new archival donations to hundreds of people engaged, to the digitization of our collections, and exhibits of our material, it was one of the most engaging years in the CLGA’s history.

We thank everyone who contributed to our dynamic year — our volunteers who contributed over 12,000 hours of work on our collections, providing public service to researchers, and supporting the CLGA in myriad ways; our donors who provided funding and materials to the core of what we do; and everyone who has been a part of this past year. We would not be where we are today without your generous support.

CONSTRUCTION NOTICE:

As we continue our efforts to make the CLGA more accessible, we are now renovating the front of the house to add a ramp to the front entrance. The exterior construction started Monday, September 17, 2018 and will continue until late November. The first steps will be working to fence off the tree at the front of the house. Please note that there will not be any construction work done during public service hours. Should there be any disruptions affecting our access to the front door and/or work in the house during this process, we will post a notice as soon as possible. Thank you for your understanding and patience as we try to make the CLGA more accessible to all. If you have any questions/concerns, please contact the Executive Director, Raegan Swanson, at executivedirector@clga.ca

Update – Sep 27, 2018: The front door is currently not accessible due to construction. Please use the back door until further notice.


The Canadian Lesbian and Gay Archives is located on the traditional lands of the Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation, the Haudenosaunee, the Anishnaabe and the Huron-Wendat. Today, Toronto is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work on this land.

The CLGA strives to gather the stories of the unheard and silenced voices of the 2SLGBTQ+ first peoples of this land. We acknowledge that some stories have already been lost, and we aim to ensure that those that remain and those that are to come are preserved for the future.
