Audio-Visual Preservation Trust of Canada fades to black, advocacy continues through Academy of Canadian Cinema and Television
Another casualty of the federal Conservative government's culture wars, the Audio-Visual Preservation Trust of Canada has dissolved effective March 31, 02010. Its important advocacy work for the preservation of Canada's audio-visual recorded heritage is being carried on through an agreement with the Academy of Canadian Cinema and Television to whom it transferred its charter on November 30, 02009. You can read about the work of the AV Trust in the final issue of its newsletter, PreserVision, no.16, Winter 02010. The AV Trust worked very closely with the Library and Archives Canada.
