Library and Archives Canada (LAC) is one of the most consulted memory institutions for Remembrance Day. And with reason: LAC certainly has the largest archives on the First World War, since those of many European countries were destroyed or damaged.
Our rich collection is full of archival records, photographs, films, music and works of art that can accompany or supplement an article, report or program segment. LAC also has archivists available for interviews. For interview requests, please contact Media Relations at 819-994-4589.
As well, feel free to tell your audience about LAC’s renowned genealogical resources. Many Canadians do not know that we have the records of some 640,000 men and women who served in the First World War as members of the Canadian Expeditionary Force (CEF). More than half of these records have been digitized and are available online free of charge.
