The protection of the federal documents of heritage value involves three main stakeholders: the Treasury Board Secretariat, which is responsible for establishing the federal government's information management policy; federal Departments/Agencies, which are responsible for applying the information management policy and managing their own records in particular; and the Library and Archives of Canada, which is responsible for identifying federal government documents of historic value, preserving them, and facilitating access to them after the home organizations have transferred them.4
Ultimately, the beneficiaries of the activity could be any entity that would need access to government records, from federal Departments/Agencies to Canadian citizens and Canadian civil society in general.
