Library and Archives Canada Report on Plans and Priorities (RPP) 2013-14
The organizations of the Canadian Heritage portfolio enrich the lives of Canadians in many ways. They make the most of the possibilities offered by technology to preserve and celebrate our heritage and our culture; they encourage the full participation of Canadians in society; and they stimulate creativity, innovation, and the economy. As a portfolio organization, Library and Archives Canada (LAC) will pursue its efforts to promote Canadian arts, culture, and heritage.
Since 2009, LAC has made progress in the research and development of new documentary heritage management practices, with the aim of adapting to the realities of the digital environment. The 2013–14 fiscal year will be devoted to implementing these practices.
LAC will adopt a new approach to better assess and acquire diverse information resources—such as publications, audiovisual material, or other works—of relevance to Canadian society. LAC will also make every effort to increase the quantity of digital content available to Canadians and to promote wider access to its collection. Finally, LAC will also opt for digital format as the main way of delivering services to Canadians.
As Minister of Canadian Heritage and Official Languages, I invite you to read the 2013–14 Report on Plans and Priorities prepared by Library and Archives Canada. This report demonstrates LAC’s commitment to achieving the goals of the Canadian Heritage portfolio and the Government of Canada.
