Diversity of Toronto: A Black Canadian Journey

Join us from February 5-25 for a special exhibit to mark Black History month and the diversity of the Black Community within the Cathedral.

More Information

The Nancy Mallett Archives and Museum was named in 2011 by Dean Douglas Stoute in recognition of Archivist Nancy Mallett’s remarkable volunteer work over the years, maintaining and building the collection and mounting exhibitions that have expanded the Cathedral’s profile in the wider community.

Archival holdings include a wide variety of records of long term value that are organized, preserved and maintained to be available for research and reference for members of the congregation and the public.

The Archives and Museum is located on the lower level of the Cathedral Centre, and is open by appointment.

Archives & Museum Committee

The Cathedral Archives & Museum Committee maintains holdings of artefacts and archival records relating the Cathedral and its role in the development of Old Town Toronto to the present day. We regularly welcome serious researchers to use the collection in their preparations. There is a modest reference library as well.

The Committee prepares several exhibits per year, conducts organized tours, prepares hands-on educational programming for school groups, and participates in city-wide events such as Heritage Week and Doors Open Toronto, as well as local events such as “Nutcracker Neighbourhood” (St. Lawrence district).

For additional information about the Cathedral’s resources relating to the history of St. James, the Old Town of York, and the development of Toronto, contact the Archivist & Museum Curator.

The Archives and Museum is a completely volunteer operation, and while there are no charges for admission or for research undertaken, donations are welcomed to assist in the care and maintenance of the collection. Tax receipts are available for gifts of $20.00 or more.
