    Scope and content

    The series consists of audiovisual records created, re-organized and preserved by ATCO to document the functions of the company and its activities in publicity, advertising, home services, infrastructure development and construction, staff wellness and social activities, continuing education and professional development, business operations and project management. The records depict employees, events, campaigns and projects in numerous towns throughout the province of Alberta.

    The series also includes scrapbooks, media clippings, and company history and information books.
