Library and Archives Canada presented the seminar Politicians, archives and elections: our work at Library and Archives Canada

On Tuesday, December 1, 2015, Élizabeth Mongrain, Manager of Governance and Political Affairs at Library and Archives Canada (LAC), gave a presentation about the crucial role that LAC plays before, during and after a federal election.

Participants learned how donations of political archives enrich LAC's collection and provide a better understanding of the Canadian decision-making process and those who play a role in it.
