The national office was located in Vancouver with George Baker serving as Executive Director and the lawyers acting as interim directors. Two years later NORML Canada was incorporated as a non-profit corporation. In 1979 Andy Rapoch was elected Executive Director and the national office was moved to Ottawa. NORML Canada had chapters from coast to coast. However, fundraising was difficult and services were mainly provided by volunteers. Under the pressure of mounting financial debts and the lack of interest in the issue of decriminalization NORML Canada ceased to operate in 1984.Instrument de recherche :Textual records (Électronique) The finding aid is a descriptive title list of volumes 1 to 19.
