CNE Archives Project

The Canadian National Exhibition Foundation is on a mission to save priceless CNE memories. It’s a race against time to digitize and preserve more than 64,000 photo negatives in the CNE archival collection before the precious images are lost forever. You can help save the CNE’s history for future generations.
