Library and Archives Canada announces financial assistance of $1.5 million to support the preservation of documentary heritage
Library and Archives Canada (LAC) will provide $1.5 million to support 48 projects (including 38 new projects) by archives, libraries and documentary heritage institutions throughout Canada. The recipients of this third cycle of the Documentary Heritage Communities Program (DHCP) were announced June 2nd in Montréal, at the annual meeting of the Association des archivistes du Québec.
The DHCP was created in 2015 to provide financial assistance for activities that enhance the visibility of, and access to, materials held by Canada’s local documentary heritage institutions. The program also aims to increase the capacity of local institutions to sustainably preserve, promote and showcase the country’s documentary heritage.
At the end of the selection process, the DHCP will provide contributions for eligible applicants across Canada for a variety of projects that will allow citizens to access and engage with their nation’s history like never before.
