Who We Are

The LSLIRC-TARR Program Archives is a resource center supporting the research of the LSLIRC-TARR Program. The Archives was initially developed to house the historical records collected through the specific claims research process. Eventually the Archives evolved and expanded to also preserve the collective memory of the LSLIRC First Nations and Treaty 8 Alberta First Nations, and to act as a cultural resource repository.

In 2014, the LSLIRC-TARR Archives was recognized as an institutional member of the Archives Society of Alberta. This is a significant step to ensuring that the Archives remain a repository for the communities in the Lesser Slave Lake region.

Our Collection

The Archives currently houses the following types of records:

CIRA Support

The Archives would like to thank the Canadian Internet Registration Authority (CIRA) for its financial support through the 2014 Community Investment Program (CIP) to enable the LSLIRC-TARR Program to continue to develop its Archival program through the LSLIRC-TARR Research and Archive Portal.
