Il n’y a pas si longtemps, les archives étaient perçues comme le domaine exclusif des professeurs d’université, des historiens et autres spécialistes de la recherche. Elles étaient jugées importantes et impressionnantes, mais ne semblaient pas correspondre au genre d’information dont le Canadien moyen pouvait avoir besoin. Bien sûr, cette perception a changé considérablement au cours des vingt dernières années, tout comme les technologies de l’information et les archives elles-mêmes. En raison du regain d’intérêt accordé à l’histoire canadienne, au patrimoine local et à l’engagement social, on reconnaît mieux maintenant le rôle indispensable que jouent les archives en permettant d’accéder à des idées, des informations et des expériences novatrices.
Dans ses démarches visant à rallier le plus large soutien possible au renouvellement du financement fédéral, le CCA est à la recherche de témoignages de différents types d’utilisateurs d’archives. Quel est l’impact des archives sur ces utilisateurs ? Comment les archives influencent-elles et améliorent-elles leur vie, leur travail et leurs loisirs? Veuillez faire parvenir vos témoignages à l’adresse suivante : email@example.com.
"That the Provincial and Territorial Archivists affirm their support of the CCA and commit to work towards its renewal to ensure its viability and capacity to provide archival leadership in Canada, including strategic planning for the archival system, the development and realization of Archives Canada and other archival Programmes of benefit to Canadians."

"As we look towards the future, the Canadian Council of Archives (CCA) and its Programmes will become increasing significant in preserving and promoting a distinctive and vibrant Canadian identity."
Ian Forsyth, Archivist,
"… There is absolutely no doubt that little if any of the progress we would no doubt have made anyway would have extended to those small but significant institutions (and their communities) without the help of CCA. Important standards have been developed. Above all, efforts have been made to establish networks, which are absolutely necessary in order effectively to preserve and communicate the archival documentary heritage in this day and age. Indeed, as Wilfred Smith wrote in his famous article on "total archives in Canada, a national system of archives is a necessary condition for preserving a wholesome archival heritage. CCA is the idea vehicle with which to build these networks."
Terry Eastwood, Member of the
"… Receipt of this funding will truly enable us to preserve and present this tremendous visual history not only to our staff and researchers, but to the general public as well - a task we would not have been able to accomplish without your valuable financial support."
Erica Hernandez, Heritage Collections Officer
"… Members of the AMA congratulate the CCA Board for its leadership and commitment, on our behalf. "
"The Saskatchewan Council for Archives and Archivists (SCAA) affirms its strong support for the Canadian Council of Archives (CCA) and the co-operative structure of the Canadian archival system. The SCAA fully supports the CCA and the Library and Archives Canada (LAC) in their efforts to ensure future sustainability of this system, and commits to assisting them in this endeavour."
Without the assistance of CCA services, I would not be a practicing archivist. Control of Holdings Grants have enabled me to upgrade my training, to establish several institutional archives, and to employ RAD standards. The Manitoba Museum Archives would not have been created at all without CCA support … The Carberry Plains Archives would not have its complete holdings now under RAD descriptions and posted on CAIN. The Girl Guides Archives (Manitoba Council) would have neither intellectual control, nor accessibility ….I have benefited enormously from the workshops, seminars, collegiality, and grants. So have the invaluable archives in Manitoba. Indeed, I hope these creative conditions continue for a very long time. Thank you so much for these opportunities.
