Acts of General Council

Series contains authorizations from the General Council of the Sisters of Saint Anne in Quebec, which overseas the St. Joseph's Province Sisters of St. Ann.

In the matter of expenditure and other substantive or important issues affecting St. Josephs Province, including personnel, the provincial body was obliged to seek approval from the more senior, General Council (Conseil Majeur) especially if an expenditure exceeded a certain amount.

These decisions or Acts were generally made during the regular meetings of General Council. They were signed by the Superior General and countersigned by the General Secretary. Occasionally a special meeting was convened to address the request from the Provincial Council.

In cases of large land or expensive building purchases, the permission came from the Holy See.
Series consists of hand written acts (1859-1913) and typewritten (1914-1965) decisions of the General Council as well as telegrams approving various transactions when time was of the essence.

Sisters of St. Ann Archives collection

  • SSA
  • Collection
  • 1850 - 2021

The collection consists of records related to the creation and function of the Sisters of St. Ann in St. Joseph's Province, which covers the geographic area of British Columbia, the Yukon, Alaska, Oregon and Washington State. The SSA Archives acquired records created by the Sisters and the Corporation, as well as associated bodies such as parent-teacher organizations or alumnae societies for the schools they were involved in. The collection is currently arranged into 53 fonds, with the records created by The Sisters in one main fonds (PR-2415) which is comprised of approximately 140 series. The additional fonds are records created by external related bodies, such as the St. Joseph's Hospital School of Nursing Alumnae, Providence Farm in Duncan, and the Friends of St. Ann's Academy.

The Sisters of St. Ann were involved in education and healthcare throughout British Columbia as well as in the Yukon and Alaska, and the records in this collection represent those activities, as well as the place of the congregation in the broader Catholic landscape of Western Canada. Records reflect the Sisters' presence in parochial and residential schools as well as hospitals, but also their relationship to their motherhouse in Lachine, Quebec, and the reporting structures of a congregation of women religious. There are many series that are related to a specific institution where the Sisters worked, but additional information about that institution will be held in administrative series such as the Provincial Bursar records or the Provincial Superior records.

The records in this collection are on numerous formats, including textual, photographic, audio and visual recordings, artworks, published library materials, objects, and digital records.
