NADP Cut and Canadian Council of Archives Call to Action

July 15, 2013: The AABC sent a letter to Heritage Minister James Moore (prior to the Cabinet change) regarding the appointment of a new Librarian and Archivist of Canada.

June 20, 2013: The AABC sent a letter to Heritage Minister James Moore regarding possible reinstatement of NADP by the new Librarian and Archivist of Canada.

On April 30th, 2012 the Library and Archives Canada (LAC) eliminated the National Archival Development Program (NADP), a vital source of funding for many Canadian archives. The Canadian Council of Archives (CCA) has initiated a Call to Action, asking Canadian archivists to campaign against the NADP cut. The AABC executive would like to encourage all BC archivists to join in this campaign. Here's what you can do to help out:

  • Write the minister of Canadian Heritage, the Honourable James Moore, your local MP, and the NDP's Heritage critic, Tyrone Benskin, asking them to stop the NADP cut
  • Past and present AABC executive members are working on a list of NADP-funded projects in BC to potentially be posted on the AABC website. If your organization has received NADP funding in the past, please send us some basic information about those projects (project name, link to a public product such as an online exhibit, amount funded) to the AABC listserv

  • Have a website or a blog? Post your NADP success stories and tweet them to @CCA_Archives with hashtag #NADPsuccess
