Advocacy Statement

The Association of Canadian Archivists (ACA) is committed to advocating on behalf of its members on matters affecting archivists and archives nationally and internationally.

The ACA shall take leadership on issues of national significance relating to archives, recordkeeping and cultural heritage and will work with local and provincial groups on matters impacting regional archives or of concern to specific areas of our membership.

Internationally, the ACA shall work with the International Council of Archives and other relevant bodies to represent the causes of archivists around the world.

The ACA shall do its utmost to ensure the voice of its members is heard and is committed to creating partnerships to affect change for the benefit of its members and society as a whole.

If there is an important issue on which you would like to see the ACA advocate, please contact ACA President Luciana Duranti.
