Help Save: Library and Archives Canada (LAC)

Recently several cuts were announced by Library and Archives Canada (LAC). These cuts will affect the ability of LAC to provide a high level of service to researchers and will affect the public’s ability to access records housed at LAC. Additionally, LAC has announced cuts to programs that support archives throughout Canada, which will affect the ability of these organizations to continue to make Canada’s documentary history accessible.

    This very important. If you are interested at all in family history or past happenings in your town, county, province, etc etc, this effects you! Please take a few minutes to lend your voice to saving the services and information we all need to persue our heritage.
