Anglican Diocese of Ottawa Archives closed

This message is posted on the door of the Anglican Diocese of Ottawa Archives which I tried to visit on Monday following research at Library and Archives Canada.
It's always a good practice to call before making a visit. Information on the closure is also on the Archives answering system at 613-232-7124 Ext 234.
One can't complain about lack of notice. The most recent Friends newsletter and the website mention that there are regular scheduled closures each year - the last week of the months of May, June, September and December.
With the exception of those closures, and other unforseen circumstances, the Archives is open to the public on Monday and Tuesday from 9 am to noon and 1 pm to 4 pm, that's well over 500 hours a year.
