Administrative history

The Archives populaires de Pointe-Saint-Charles was established in 1997 as a community-based organization dedicated to collecting and promoting the archival heritage of the Pointe. Activities included preservation of its own institutional records, acquisition of records of local community organizations, preparation of finding aids based on its holdings, and exhibitions about factories that bordered the Lachine Canal and women's community organizing activities.

Sources gathered by the Archives populaires were used in the production of a book published in 2006 entitled Pointe Saint-Charles: un quartier des femmes, une historie communautaire/ The Point is... Grassroots Organizing Works! Women from Point St. Charles Sharing Stories of Solidarity.

The Archives populaires de Pointe-Saint-Charles was dissolved in 2007.
