Canadian libraries have the common mission of preserving and disseminating Canada’s knowledge and heritage—a crucial component of an innovative, productive and forward-looking country. Our members also provide free access to the information and resources that many Canadians—especially those who face socioeconomic barriers—need to maximize their personal development and wellbeing and their contributions to the economy.

The Canadian Federation of Library Associations (CFLA-FCAB) is the united, national voice of Canada’s library community. As the national voice of Canada’s library communities, CFLA-FCAB will work to:

  • advance library excellence in Canada;
  • champion library values and the value of libraries; and
  • influence national and international public policy impacting libraries and their communities.

CFLA-FCAB was formed as an outcome of the Future Federation Working Group, to find a new way forward for the Canadian library community.
