Our Strategic Choices
The strategic framework also identifies strategic choices that will enable us to realize key elements of Directions for Change and will influence how we achieve the goals set out in our program activity architecture.
The strategic choices incorporate our efforts to mitigate the risks identified earlier in this plan. While the strategic choices vary in nature and complexity, each requires a significant rebalancing of the way we carry out our business over time-and a rethinking of many activities.
These strategic choices reflect LAC goals, which are:
- to make LAC and its collection better known among Canadians by reaching out to people and communities and encouraging their interest in Canada's many stories;
- to manage our operations more effectively as we improve our digital networks and make capital investments that generate the best possible contributions to the achievement of our mandate. This will allow us to serve as a trusted digital repository for Canada's documentary heritage, as a valued cultural leader, and as an internationally recognized innovator; and
- to position LAC as a key supporter of accountability in government and a more vibrant Canadian democracy as we align our government records roles with the needs of citizens, parliamentarians and government managers and leaders.
- LAC will adjust all aspects of its activities to adapt to the needs and benefit from the opportunities of the digital information environment
- LAC will increase the relevance and accessibility of LAC collection and expertise to Canadians outside the National Capital Region
- LAC will focus its role in Government of Canada information management on the development of effective recordkeeping
- LAC will make systematic use of collaborative arrangements and will increasingly deliver on its mandate through or with others
- LAC will ensure citizen/client research and evaluation results are built into management decision-making
