  • LAC's website is an amalgamation of the National Archives of Canada's and the National Library of Canada's former sites. Because the two previous sites were created through different technical processes, it was not possible to incorporate some of the accessibility features in all the pages. Over time, we will be working to bring all the pages of LAC's website to a consistent standard.
  • LAC has already implemented many important accessibility features on its website: see Accessibility at Library and Archives Canada
  • LAC supports the Council on Access to Information for Print-Disabled Canadians
  • We welcome any suggestions for improving the accessibility features of our website. Please contact us at web@lac-bac.gc.ca.
