The Canadian Library Association was founded in 1946. It is a national association, representing individual and institutional members from all across Canada and beyond. The CLA’s membership primarily consists of institutional members, mainly libraries and library suppliers.
The CLA is “a leader among library organizations in Canada, serving as monitor and advocate on key political and economic issues that affect libraries and library staff. CLA advises and represents its members on issues such as copyright, taxation on books, information policy and censorship.”*
