The Conference Archives and congregational records are housed in the Provincial Archives of Alberta in Edmonton.

The holdings of the Conference Archives are accessible through the Sandra Thomson Reading Room of the Provincial Archives during its regular hours.

The Conference Archives consists of approximately 375 linear metres of records, dating from the 1830’s to the present. It acquires, preserves and makes available the archival records created, accumulated, and/or maintained by Alberta and Northwest Conference, its Presbyteries, Pastoral Charges and Congregations, and the related church groups, associations, educational institutions, and hospitals operated therein. The Archives also acquires personal papers and manuscripts of individuals (clergy and church workers) associated with the Conference.
