About Lloydminster Regional Archives

History

The Lloydminster Regional Archives was founded and is governed by the Lloydminster and District Centennial Commemorative Association (LDCCA), a registered non-profit association with charitable status. The Lloydminster Regional Archives is funded by the LDCCA via grants, donations and annual fundraising events.

Ten years of planning, negotiations and development by the LDCCA culminated on June 28, 2003, with the official opening of the Lloydminster Regional Archives facility, which was housed adjacent to the Lloydminster Public Library.

Mandate

The mandate of the Lloydminster Regional Archives is to collect, catalogue, conserve and make available historically significant information that is generated in the Lloydminster Region. The information is available in several formats and media.

Coverage Area

Due to the unique nature of the city of Lloydminster, being a border town, the Lloydminster Regional Archives has tried to cover an equal area in both Alberta and Saskatchewan. The Area that is covered is from Islay, in the West, to Maidstone in the East, and includes the area between the North Saskatchewan River, in the North, and the Battle River, in the South. We have also included the areas of: Tulliby Lake; Onion Lake; Frog Lake and Fort Pit; due to the historical significant events that occurred there.

Supporting the Archives

The Lloydminster Regional Archives is supported solely by donations and fundraising through the LDCCA Inc. This organization is registered in both Alberta and Saskatchewan as a non-profit association and is a registered charity. All donations of $30 or more will be acknowledged with a receipt for tax purposes.
