Regional Records Centres
Infrastructure (INF) runs records centres in Inuvik, Fort Simpson, Fort Smith, Hay River, and Yellowknife. The records centres store and retrieve records for government departments for as long as the records are needed. The records centres are operated by the INF Regional Offices in cooperation with the Records Management Section.Records Coordinators in each department manage all storage and retrieval activities, including those in the regions. If you don't know the name of your Records Coordinator, send us an e-mail. Be sure to say what department you work for.
