South Peace Regional Archives move to Centre 2000

The South Peace Regional Archives, located in Grande Prairie, has issued a statement regarding their imminent move to the Centre 2000 building and the subsequent closure of the facility while the move takes place. 

"The South Peace Regional Archives is moving to their new facility in Centre 2000! During the move, the Archives will be closed to the public from February 1st to May 1st 2024.

Since it was founded in 2000, the South Peace Regional Archives has operated out of the Grande Prairie Museum but will now be moving to our new permanent facility in Centre 2000. This move will add more than 5000 sq ft to the Archives, allowing them to safely house their ever growing archival collection, and to enhance collection care. The new space will also include a dedicated reading room for researchers and volunteers to work in, a meeting room for community gathering, and a small exhibit space. This will allow the South Peace Regional Archives to be more accessible, and to increase the services they offer to the community. This project has been made possible with funding from the Government of Canada, Government of Alberta, City of Grande Prairie, County of Grande Prairie, and M.D. of Greenview.

To facilitate the safe relocation of the collection, the Archives will be closed to the public from February 1st to May 1st, 2024. During this time, pieces of the archival collection will be packed and not accessible. Therefore, they will not be able to accept any archival donations, host any researchers, or complete research requests. The Archives will still be accessible through their website,, where you can find archival finding aids, and research databases. A selection of their digitized records are also available through the Archive Society of Alberta’s

“We are excited for the opportunities that our new home will provide,” said Jan Shields, the President of the South Peace Regional Archives Society, “and we appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding during the relocation. We look forward to welcoming you all to our new location in Centre 2000 very soon!”
