As one of the top accredited archives in Quebec, the ETRC preserves the documentary heritage of the Eastern Townships and serves as an archival expertise resource for local heritage organizations.

The ETRC promotes the Townships’ rich and unique history through public lectures, colloquia, and exhibitions. The Centre offers educational materials for teachers and its own publication,
the Journal of Eastern Townships Studies (JETS). As a long-standing and proud member of the Bishop’s community, the ETRC creates bridges between Bishop’s and the surrounding communities.

The ETRC shows how exciting it is to have quality research produced in the region, research that is expressed in the two languages that signify the historical richness of the Eastern Townships.
