About the SOCA Archives

 



PURPOSE AND MISSION OF Southern Ontario C.A. AREA ARCHIVE

The purpose of the SOCA Archive ought to document permanently the work of Cocaine Anonymous in Southern Ontario and make the history of the organization accessible to C.A. members and to provide a context for understanding C.A.’s progression, principles and traditions.

The mission of the SOCA Archive Committee is to collect, protect and preserve, organize, catalogue and present historically valued documents, printed materials, items, artifacts, ephemera and memorabilia of Cocaine Anonymous in Southern Ontario into two archival collections:

1. Southern Ontario C.A. Area History
2. Southern Ontario C.A. Convention History

The history of the founding of the fellowship in Southern Ontario is a vital and informative resource. We need always acknowledge our background in order to secure our collective future. Historic records help us to sift through our day-to-day experience in recovery and reach back for the shared experience of the past. Sorting the myth from the facts we can ensure that our original message of recovery, unity and service remains the same in a changing, growing, expanding Fellowship.
