The Association of Canadian Archivists Foundation (ACAF) was created and federally incorporated by ACA in 2006 and has received a Certificate of Continuance under the Canada Not-for-profit Corporations Act (CNCA). The purpose of the Foundation is to provide a fund-raising and fund granting charitable organization, with the specific aim of supporting the educational and research needs of the Canadian archival profession. Its key areas of focus are the following:
- to provide bursaries to Canadians and landed immigrants, who are attending universities or colleges that are Canadian registered charities and who are enrolled in archival-related disciplines.
- to administer and fund-raise for the ACAF Scholarship Endowment Fund, established in 2010. This Fund was set up to produce a long-term income stream for the provision of scholarships to archival studies students, and thus support the Canadian archival profession.
