Over the past year, Canada’s Public Policy Forum, with the support of Library and Archives Canada (LAC), has convened leaders from the private, public and non-profit sectors to discuss how Canada’s memory institutions might best identify, preserve and share our documentary heritage in a digital age.

We organized roundtable discussions in Halifax, Edmonton, Montreal and Toronto to explore how Canadian organizations, including archives and libraries, might use technology and a collaborative network to establish consistent practices across sectors.

This report reflects the roundtable participants’ opinions and explores some of the key themes, case studies and issues worthy of further examination by leaders in all sectors. Our goal is to spark a broader discussion about some of the processes, tools and issues that will need to be considered as we seek to make our country’s collective history accessible to future generations.
