The collection consists of records aquired by the Association of Canadian Women Composers archives. The materials, which include musical scores and sheet music, concert programs and flyers, media clippings, and sound recordings, were donated by ACWC members. They document the activities and contributions of women composers in Canada and elsewhere. Records consist of two series: Composer Files containing materials that relate to a single composer subject, and Other Materials containing records that relate either to multiple composers or to the subject of women composers more generally.

Additional materials may relate to her role in the founding and administration of the BC Chapter of the Association of Canadian Women Composers (ACWC) and Women in Music (WIM). The fonds includes correspondence, notes, periodicals and other publications, course materials, interviews (transcripts and sound recordings), performance recordings, broadcast recordings, a collection of scores and sheet music, and a collection of commercial recordings.
