Habitat I – Document Archive

The Document Archive of the Habitat I Conference contains national reports, speeches scripts, press releases, newsletters, newspaper articles, books and promotional materials that were made publicly available during the time of the Conference. These digital materials have been scanned from physical records located at the University of British Columbia Archives, the City of Vancouver Archives, and from various personal archives. Where digital images are distorted, this is due to the limitations of the scanning technology and techniques permitted by the Archives so as not to damage the original documents. All documents have been converted with optical character recognition in order to make them searchable.
