B.C.'s archives association signs memorandum with national council
Fort Langley BC - During its Annual General Assembly, the Archives Association of British Columbia (AABC) recently took yet another significant step in reinforcing the strength of Canada's archival community through the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding with the Canadian Council of Archives (CCA).
Speaking to the members of the Archives Association of British Columbia, CCA board Member, Ms. Lara Wilson, remarked, "CCA members include archives from every province and territory, as well as the Library and Archives Canada and professional associations such as the Association des archivistes du Québec and the Association of Canadian Archivists. Together, our members are the custodians of Canada's documentary heritage covering every subject imaginable - from politics to the arts, business, technology, religion, medicine and the environment." Ms. Wilson further noted, "The success of the CCA is directly attributable to the founding efforts of a nationwide spontaneous movement of individual archivists who saw a need and opportunity to work together. Now, after 20 years of perseverance, the relationship has come of age and we are proud to celebrate the vitality of our network through the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between AABC and the CCA."
The Archives Association of British Columbia was established in 1990 through the amalgamation of the Association of British Columbia Archivists and the B.C. Archives Council. Established in 1985, the Canadian Council of Archives is a network comprised of 13 provincial and territorial councils and associations dedicated to working towards a vision of Canada in which our documentary heritage is preserved and open to all and engages citizens in their communities and country.
