Flood Advisory Programme

The June 2013 Flooding

On January 27, 2014, Alberta Culture and Tourism announced that it will be providing funding to the Archives Society of Alberta to assist with the proper care of archival collections impacted by the 2013 floods in Alberta. This funding is part of a $6 million commitment by the Government of Alberta to help flood-impacted museums and archives. The Archives Society of Alberta will be distributing this funding through the Flood Advisory Programme.

The Flood Advisory Programme

The ASA is hiring teams of archivists and conservators to assess and help restore flood impacted sites as well as to assess and prepare archives for future emergencies and disasters. The work commenced Fall 2014. In order to qualify for an assessment, an archives must be an ASA institutional member.
