Q. How do I find out more about the McKenna McBride Royal Commission?
A. A list of related sources is provided on our 'bibliography'
page. Choosing from this list, consult your local school or
public library. If you cannot find something, talk to your
local librarian to help you find the sources you want.
Q. Where can I find original copies of the McKenna McBride records?
A. Microfilm copies of the original records are held at the
Library and Archives of Canada in Ottawa, the British Columbia Archives
in Victoria, and Indian and Northern Affairs Canada (for claims
researchers only) in Vancouver. Information held at LAC and
the BC Archives may not be the same as it was a joint Commission,
therefore LAC houses the federal records while the BC Archives holds
the provincial ones. If you cannot get to these locations,
your local public library should be able to obtain the reels for you
through the inter-library loan system.
Q. Can I use the information on the website in my work/publication?
A. All information on this site is available for use without prior
consent for the purposes of research, teaching, private study or
general interest. If you want to use any materials for
