Series consists of letters received by the City Clerk from different City departments, community organizations, the federal and provincial governments, professional organizations, and municipalities throughout the world.
Although there are letters dating back to 1908, most of the material dates from the mid 1930's. There are two sequences of records within this series; the first ranging from the earliest material to the 1950s, and the second covering the 1950s through to 1973. This correspondence is arranged by subject and is filed either by received stamp number or chronologically. If the letter received originated within the City administration there will be no received stamp number, it will not be listed in the communications received index (CR-0014), and the file will be arranged chronologically. If the material received originated outside the City administration it will be arranged according to received stamp number and will be listed in the index.
Council meeting agendas, originally described as part of this series, were transferred to CR-0327 (Council Agendas) in 2006.
