The Canada Memory of the World Register
CCUNESCO assists nominees interested in submitting a documentary collection to the national and international registers. With the support of the Advisory Committee, CCUNESCO manages the Canadian listings and makes recommendations for submissions to the international register. Register entries (written works, films, photographs, audio recordings and so on) will ultimately reflect the diversity of our heritage and the realities of our country, its Indigenous peoples, regions, communities and individuals.
Six Canadian works and documentary collections are currently listed in the International Memory of the World Register. These inaugural inductees to the Canadian register will be joined by others over the next few years.
