Improved Measures for BAnQ's Accredited Private Archives Services and Private Archives Processing Programs

On Friday, April 13, Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec announced that the budget for its Accredited Private Archives Services and Private Archives Processing programs for 2018-2020 would be increased by $420,000, going from $1,004,300 to $1,214,300 per year.

The additional funding provided by the provincial Ministry of Culture and Communications will ensure the continuation of 32 accredited private archives services and the improvement of the Private Archives Processing Program.

Since its inception in 1990, the Accreditation Program has promoted the preservation of private archives and promoted private archives services. The Processing Program, created in the late 1970s, is for non-profit organizations and public bodies that want to make their private archives available to the public.
