LAC is an institution undergoing organizational change. Since the merger of the former National Archives of Canada and the National Library of Canada, LAC has flourished. Many LAC employees have gone through a stimulating, exciting period of redefining and modernizing old structures and approaches. The institution's leaders and employees are now more aware of the need for organizational change to put the institution in the right position to carry out its mission within government, Canadian society and various professional communities.
LAC has undergone significant organizational change in 2009–2010 with the appointment of a new Librarian and Archivist in April 2009 and a shuffle in the ranks of senior management. The organization has also launched a corporate modernization exercise, to create a more effective organization in response to the evolving challenges and opportunities in the industry.
In addition to the Organizational Change Management Framework, LAC has also developed guidelines to help managers establish the most effective organizational structure. Managers and directors were equipped with a toolkit to facilitate discussions with their employees regarding the reorganization. Employees were engaged in the strategic development phase.
