Hélène Laverdure is a Canadian archivist. She is the Curator and Director General of the Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec (BAnQ).

Early life[edit]

Laverdure was born in Val-David, Quebec to father Julien Laverdure. She has three brothers.[1]


Originally trained as a documentation technician with the Commission scolaire des Laurentides, she was recruited as an archivist by the Communauté urbaine de Québec in the early 1990s. From there, she moved to work with the Ministry of Labor, where she later became the document management team leader and project manager. In 2005, she was appointed archival manager at the Ministry of Transport until 2011 when she was selected to become the Director of the Records and Archives Management Division at the BAnQ.[1] That year, she also joined the editorial team at the magazine L'information.[2]

In 2016, BAnQ received the Prix d’excellence from the Institute of Public Administration of Quebec.[3] The next year, she was a speaker at the 2017 Wikimania.[4]
