Stakeholders' forum

Stakeholders' forum
Stakeholders' forum


The mandate of the stakeholders' forum is:

  • to engage its members in early discussions of Library and Archives Canada’s (LAC) strategic, policy and operational directions
  • to facilitate exchange of information among members, and between members and LAC
  • to serve as a mechanism to test ideas and to identify opportunities to collaborate in areas of mutual interest and benefit

Consult LAC’s approach to engaging with national stakeholders.


The members of the stakeholders' forum represent the diverse expertise and perspectives of Canada's documentary heritage associations and other organizations. Each organization can have a maximum of two representatives participate in Forum meetings, either the president or chairperson, and/or the Executive Director.

The Forum is chaired by the Librarian and Archivist of Canada, and secretariat support is provided by LAC.
