Join your ACA UofT Student Chapter for a tour of the TD Bank Archives on April 3rd at 1pm! Interested in corporate archives? Then this is your opportunity! This unique tour will highlight the bank’s 163-year history and its extensive collections. Get a chance to talk to the archivist about their experience working in a corporate archive and don’t forget to ask about their fun TD memorabilia collection, like the TD lobster bib and the ‘Mega Mortgage Combo’ hot sauce bottle!

Please arrive 10 minutes before the scheduled time at the archives location so that we may convene together and find each other.
All Faculty of Information students, staff and faculty welcome. When registering for this event, please use your UofT email address.
