Library and Archives Canada ensures the long-term preservation of its holdings and makes them available to the public through circulation, loans and copying.

In the fall of 1998, we launched an exciting exploration of the value of preservation in archives, and we concluded that in our archives, as well as in Canada and internationally, preservation is an essential and pervasive activity, the "binding factor" in the continuum of archival activity as a whole, not just a discrete function or service, and that at a global level, it is an expression of the fundamental function of all cultural agencies with heritage collections.

Library and Archives’ core preservation values are expertise, connectedness, leadership, visibility and accountability. We want to improve our expertise continually, show leadership in our profession, and ensure that Library and Archives’ collection is visible, understood and appreciated, and recognize our accountability to the holdings, the government, the public and the future.
