The Canadian Architectural Archives was established in 1974, primarily to support the Architecture Program of the Faculty of Environmental Design. Its collections, all acquired by donation, also serve the needs of practicing architects, architectural historians, and others concerned with the documentation of the built environment. The CAA's holdings are extensive, and focus on the drawings and documents of 20th century Canadian architectural firms. The collections consist mostly of drawings and project files, and one photographic collection. Organized by name of donor firm, the collections are accessible by means of in house finding aids, and published inventories to two collections.
