Step 1. Overview
Library and Archives Canada (LAC) accepts archival (unpublished) material in all forms and languages. It must be created in Canada or abroad on subjects related to Canada's history and culture. If you have items to donate that may be of interest to Canadians, then we may want them for our collection.
We consider items based on rarity, age, physical condition, and how they fit in with other items in the collection. Archival material created at the time of Confederation or before (1867 or earlier) is of great importance to us.
