Library and Archives Canada Reduced $18.5 million in 2023-24 Budget

In the Main Estimates for 2023-24 tabled in the House of Commons,  Library and Archives Canada is allocated $203.8 million, a decrease from $222.3 million for 2022-23. Operating expenditures increase by $31.1 million, while Capital expenditures decrease by $52.8 million.

Another way to slice the pie is according to core responsibilities.

Although superficially, it looks like bad news, the increase in Internal Service could be an accounting move of activity; some changes may reflect the end of a specially funded program. I’ll wait until the details in the 2023–24 Departmental Plan, not yet tabled in the Commons, become available to conclude how service is affected.
