Habitat I – Forum Document Archive

The Document Archive of the Non-Governmental Organization Forum (the “Habitat Forum”) contains primary reports, speeches scripts, newsletters, newspaper articles, books and promotional materials that were made publicly available during the time of the Forum. These digital materials have been scanned from physical records located at the University of British Columbia Archives, University of British Columbia Library, Rare Books & Special Collections, the City of Vancouver Archives, and from the personal archives of Vancouver-based informants. 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.
