Library and Archives Canada, Foreign Affairs Canada and the International Campaign to Ban Landmines Celebrate Transfer of Archival Records

Ottawa, September 15, 2004 - Library and Archives Canada will host a ceremony to mark the transfer of archival records from the International Campaign to Ban Landmines (ICBL). The ICBL was Co-Laureate of the 1997 Nobel Peace Prize.

Canada was the first country to both sign and ratify the Ottawa Convention (disarmament treaty to ban anti-personnel mines). It is significant that the ICBL chose Library and Archives Canada as the repository for its records as it is indicative of a productive partnership. Canada is a leader in working towards the total eradication of anti-personnel mines and to humanitarian cooperation. The ICBL's archival records will be permanently housed and can be accessed in person at Library and Archives Canada.

In attendance will be the Honourable Patricia Ann (Paddy) Torsney, Parliamentary Secretary for the Minister of International Cooperation; Elizabeth Bernstein, Coordinator, International Campaign to Ban Landmines; Paul Hannon, Executive Director, Mines Action Canada; Ian E. Wilson, Librarian and Archivist of Canada and His Excellency Ross Hynes, Canadian Ambassador for Mine Action.

What: Deed of Gift signing ceremony for the archival records of the International Campaign to Ban Landmines to Library and Archives Canada

When: Wednesday, September 15, 2004 at 10:30 a.m.

Where: Library and Archives Canada, 395 Wellington Street, Ottawa.
