Recorded Information Management Program, Public Archives and Records Office

Recorded Information Management (RIM) is the systematic control of all recorded information regardless of media from creation or receipt to final disposition. Effective records management:

  • supports decision making;
  • reduces costs;
  • meets business, legal, and accountability requirements; and
  • ensures appropriate record disposition.

What does the Public Archives RIM unit do?

The Public Archives and Records Office RIM Unit delivers a corporate program that:

  • provides central records management services and support to all departments, agencies, corporations, and commissions within the Government of Prince Edward Island;
  • audits and monitors the development and maintenance of RIM programs in departments;
  • provides training opportunities to staff at all levels of government through consultations and workshops; and
  • manages the Provincial Records Centre and offers economical off-site storage and retrieval services to departments for semi-active government records.
