Final Summary Report: Blueprint Launch

Last November the Canadian Archival System Working Group held a launch event in Ottawa to officially release the strategy entitled, "Canada's Archives: A New Blueprint". Over 90 participants from across Canada attended the event which became a trending topic on Twitter (#archives2026).

At that time, the Working Group promised to share a short report summarizing discussions during the event, as well as comments received via email and social media. The Working Group is pleased to invite you to consult the summary report which is now available online.

The publication of this report marks the end of the mandate of the Working Group which held its final meeting on February 8, 2016 in Ottawa. Members of the Working Group would like to thank the Canadian archival community for engaging in development of the Strategy, a process that begun in 2014 with the Canadian Archives Summit.

As indicated at the November event, a Steering Committee will be struck in the coming weeks to oversee work under the Strategy, and additional information will be shared this spring explaining how you can get involved. 

Now, the real work begins! Stay tuned to learn how you can become involved.
