Student Chapters

ACA encourages students in the archival academic programs to get involved with their professional association - Association of Canadian Archivists - early on in their career. 

The following are our current student Chapters:


University of British Columbia - ACA@UBC

The mission of the ACA@UBC is to:

  1. Serve as a means of introducing new archivists into the profession;
  2. Enhance the educational function by providing an additional focus for the students to discuss archival issues, identify with the profession, and engage in professional activities;
  3. Promote communication among student members and between students;
  4. Provide a communication channel for its members with the general membership of the Association and to the Board on matters of concern to the Chapter;
  5. Develop the leaders of tomorrow’s archival profession; and
  6. Attract new members into the Association.
