Library and Archives Canada Business Plan 2007 - 2010

The Program Activity Architecture

As an organization that must be accountable for what it does and the public funds that it uses, Library and Archives Canada (LAC) has defined its program activity architecture, the single strategic outcome that it wants to achieve and the major responsibilities and activities that are focused on achieving that outcome.

Our program activity architecture, shown below, has been constructed to meet the requirements of the government-wide Management, Resources and Results Structure (MRRS). It is the basis for our reporting to Parliament and allows for more focused corporate decision-making. It also reflects our role in achieving the government-wide outcomes that are described above. It enables us to captures both our current activities and our future directions as we continue to transform our programs, services and operations.
