Immediate Call to Action!
On April 30, 2012, LAC eliminated the National Archival Development Program (NADP), a 1.7 million contribution program administered by the
non-for-profit Canadian Council of Archives (CCA) for LAC and distributed to Canadas 13 archives councils to support archival activities locally. Through the
councils, NADP funding is on the ground in our 10 provinces and 3 territories, ensuring that Canadas history is preserved in local communities. Canadas
archival councils provide user-centred services, providing support to archives and archivists so that they may better serve all Canadians.

- Archivists’ On to Ottawa Trek
On May 28, join us in the Archivists’ On to Ottawa Trek. Like our forebears in the 1935 On to Ottawa Trek, who protested government mismanagement during the
Great Depression, angry archivists and our allies from coast to coast will descend on Ottawa (and other locations across the country). We will be heard.
Follow us on Twitter: @CCA_Archives We are inviting people to tweet links to resources funded by NADP using the hashtag #NADP and cc’ed to Prime Minister Harper
(@pmharper) and Minister Moore (@JamesMoore_org)
Join us if you have any NADP success stories to share!
